Breaking Up Quotes
Breaking up isn’t easy at all. As a matter of fact, one might say that breaking up with a person you love is one of the hardest things to go through emotionally. Withdrawal from somebody who once made you so happy can take its toll on your well-being, and for a while it may seem as if you are stuck in a deep hole, with no way to get out. The feelings and the pain can often be unbearable, and I think you can be forgiven for having no motivation or energy to even get up and go to work some mornings. However, throughout all of this, there is actually some things you can bear in mind to help yourself get through the pain, one day at a time.
The first major point is that others can help you. That’s right! You may not feel like seeing anyone at all, let alone talking to them and telling them your problems, but if you have any friends or family, then simply having a 5 minute talk with them can actually help to resolve many issues, and at the very least will give you a platform to get things off your chest. Simply staying at home and locking yourself in your room isn’t healthy nor advised, as things often become bottled up and eventually turn to hate. It is best to have an honest, open discussion with somebody who cares about you, and if possible, somebody who has been through and experienced a break up themselves. These kinds of people are in the best position to both help and advise you on where to go from here, and in some cases can be absolute saviours.

In some cases it can be hard to describe just exactly what we’re feeling in the case of a break up. Sadness, anger, resentment, sorrow, and missing the actual person are all feelings that can surface (along with others), but they all appear so suddenly and together that they become mixed, and can end up leaving you feeling confused and anxious. Speaking with somebody who knows these feelings and has had this experience before will, without a doubt, help you to understand and overcome them, and in time completely forget that you ever felt this way.
“Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.” - Anonymous
Of course, it is advisable then to remain positive. Things aren’t always as bad as they seem at first glance, and everything happens for a reason, even if it does not seem so at first. Bear in mind that there is a whole world out there waiting to be experienced, so pick yourself up and get back into it!
