#WhatHurtsTheMost is trending today on Twitter. It’s a collection of thoughts about the life situations that stick with people, along with snippets of the Rascal Flatts song by the same name.


For example:


#WhatHurtsTheMost is wanting pizza but having no money.

#WhatHurtsTheMost that summer tiptoe dance on concrete when you’re barefoot and trying to find the nearest patch of grass.

#WhatHurtsTheMost that awkward moment when you see your crush flirting with someone else.

#WhatHurtsTheMost is having six boxes of cereal in the cabinet and an empty gallon of milk.
