10 Reasons I'm Not Ready To Let Elena Gilbert Go. #WeWillMissYouNina

Thursday, May 14 marks the day that our beloved human turned doppelganger turned vampire hangs up her fangs for real and leaves Mystic Falls for good. I wasn't ready when she chose Damon over Stefan then and I'm not ready for her to leave them both behind now. Bye Elena Gilbert, we will miss you. P.S. Can Little Gilbert come back now?

1. Episode 1 She Stole Our Hearts.

Can you say aw? When I was in high school, I couldn't make this happen if I tried. Then again, I also didn't have super attractive 170 year old vampires attending high school just to meet me. Lucky lady.

2. She Was Always So Optimistic.

Her character had a ridiculous amount of bad things happen to her, yet she was the most sane character on the show. Go figure.

3. She Tried to Not Chase the Boys... But...

I applaud you for trying, Elena but who can blame you. Those Salvatore boys would make any girl go crazy.

4. Her Bestie Squad. Care Bear & Bon Bon.

Six seasons and no one came between these three. Adorable isn't it?

5. Katherine, Tatia, Amara, etc.

Poor Elena always having to constantly prove she was herself.So many doppelgangers, so little time.

6. Her Love for Little Gilbert.

Who miraculously became super attractive in the middle of the show.

She was his sister, mother figure and guardian.

Under the circumstances, she did a pretty decent job.

7. Until He Died, for the Millionth Time.

But she mourned, like any normal person would.

Then turned off her humanity, went on a killing spree, like any normal vampire would. And then Little Gilbert came back to life... also for the millionth time.

10. She Made Indecisive Okay.

It's nice to know that not knowing what you do and do not want is okay.

Even in the television world.

It's even better knowing that someone has a worse love life than me.

#GoodbyeElena

Well Elena, you shall be missed.

And considering this show will probably only last another season,

it's safe to say #TVD can't exist without you.
