A failed relationship can have quite an effect on many people. It can move others to depression and extreme sadness. At the onset, people will feel that their whole world is destroyed and there is no getting back. But the fact of the matter is that this only happens on the first stage. It might differ from one failed relationship to another, but time will come when a person will finally be able to move on and discover life once again. There are also signs that will help indicate that you have finally moved on. Here are some of them.
You no longer feel bitterness when meeting other loving couples.
Passing by a romantic couple can easily bring back the memories of a previous relationship that has gone sour. It can sometimes bring up feelings of envy, jealousy, but most of all, bitterness. It can be a normal phase for someone who have gone through a traumatic experience such as breaking up with a romantic partner. The longer the relationship, the worse the bitterness a person may feel. But given time, all the bitterness will eventually fade away. That is a good sign that one has accepted the reality of the failed relationship and has already moved on.
You learn to embrace being single again.
Many people coming from a failed relationship are deeply affected because of the idea that they cannot live life on their own. But in reality, people can learn how to live happy alone. Being single has its advantages. The sooner people coming from a failed relationship realize this, the faster they will be able to move on. Once people have learned how to value singlehood, that is also a sign that they have learned to move on.
You have a wiser perspective of relationships.
While failed romantic partnerships usually become traumatic experiences for some people, it can also be an empowering one as well. People can learn lessons from the experience. People who have gone through a failed relationship also become wiser and more careful not to make the same mistakes again. They also have a better idea of what they wish out of their next relationship. This can help ensure that they can take more care in building a new relationship that will eventually last this time around.
