Relationships aren’t easy. We all know that, and we especially know that getting over someone is one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do. You may transition from caring about someone so deeply, to having to convince yourself you don’t care at all. It’s unbelievably hard, and an expert on falling in and out of love with someone is Peyton Sawyer from One Tree Hill. Peyton went through her fair share of heartache throughout the show. She truly was a badass, and even some of these Peyton Sawyer quotes can get you through the most painful heartache.

From Nathan, to Lucas, to Jake, to even Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy, Peyton went through it all when it came to love. She believed that "people always leave," but she came out on top, finally ending up with her true love Lucas Scott (even if they went on and off for awhile). I mean, Peyton had to give up on Lucas a few times for her best friend Brooke Davis, even though she still loved him. The love triangle that went on between those three was almost too much to handle.

I don’t have as many relationships under my belt as Peyton, but anytime I go through heartache, I would most definitely be classified as a puddle on the floor if I didn’t have these 14 badass quotes from her to exclaim, "same," and keep me going when I need some strength. Peyton Sawyer is one tough girl who reminds us all that sure, we’ll have heartache, but with some strength, a good mix CD, and hope, we’ll make it out alright.
