Having a relationship with a man or a woman whom we feel really connected to, but realizing, in the end that it really wasn’t meant to be, is definitely a big blow. You search for answers, reasons for reconciliation, yet there is none. Your life is in shreds and pieces and there’s nothing left for you to do but to accept the truth as it mocks you and stares at you right at the face.
Should you suffer forever? Of course, not! Here are a few things you should keep in mind to get you to move on in your life without as much as a bitter afterthought to your former partner:
First, accept the reality that break-ups aren’t the end of the world. Life doesn’t end when you begin to experience heartaches. There are other great things out there, ready and waiting for you to experience it. Sure, you are entitled to cry and to mope around for a while, but only for a while. Do not get stuck with the past. What’s done is done, so move on.
Second, understand that there are other fishes in the sea. The end of a relationship means the start of a new relationship. This doesn’t mean that you should jump into an affair immediately after you ended a relationship with another person. But in a nutshell, this means that you have to keep your doors opened for the opportunity to meet other people.
People get their heart broken all the time. Don’t think that heaven and earth conspired just to make you feel miserable. Things change and relationships end. Keep your heart from bitterness and angst from your past relationship. Do not be afraid to take love and romance another shot.
And trust yourself that finding the right person will be all worth it.
