“Why did they break my heart?”
“I thought we were meant for each other.”
“No one will ever love me that way again.”
Well, guess what? Someone will.
We need to stop seeing breakups as a bad thing. They’re the end to a relationship that wasn’t meant to be, whether we know it at the time or not. Their’s an opportunity to start anew, a chance to find someone compatible for us, and most importantly, an opportunity to find ourselves.
A breakup gives you the chance to explore what you truly want, and to find out what you don’t want. Sure, breakups really hurt, but after a while, that pain and heartbreak unknowingly melts away. We need a few heartbreaks. Without the pain of broken love, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate true love when we find it.
Even more importantly, the pain is proof -> proof that it had a significant touch of something real. It also proves that person wasn’t a complete waste of your time. They may not have been right for you, but they taught you something. Whether it was teaching you how to salsa or the life lessons to recognize the red flags early~trust me there is always something gained from a relationship.
Heartbreaks come and go; hell that’s what life is all about. There will always be seasons in our lives to sow and reap, a beginning of something new and an end to something that has run it’s course. However, the memories and the wisdom gained from our past relationships last a lifetime. It may be hard to believe, but I think it’s worth the tradeoff for the wisdom and insight that you gain from that loss.
