We’re supposed to become wiser as we evolve. We’re supposed to mature. We’re not supposed to make the same mistakes and we are supposed to learn lessons from our previous mistakes. Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but that’s bulls*it. We can intellectualize all day and imagine how we will handle ourselves in certain situations, but when reality sets in we usually act on emotion and impulse. Well, here are the things that I recently learned from yet another break up. While I’m hoping that I remember them in the future, I’m not sure. Hopefully it will at least help some of you.
1. The End Is A New Beginning
I used to look at the end as the end. Now I have to start all over again. I have to go back to the gym, never leave the house looking less than perfect, and pretend to be interested in strangers even thought I really couldn’t care less. But instead of looking at it as an ending I’m trying to look at them as beginnings. The possibility of the beginning of something better. A better relationship where I have to compromise less of myself for the other person. A beginning of happiness I didn’t even know that I could feel. A beginning without tears.
2. You’re Better Off Without Him
Yes, this is something your friends are going to tell you no matter what. It’s break up 101 in the girl code handbook. BUT if it’s over it obviously wasn’t working for one, or both of you. While it sucks to end any relationship it isn’t fair to either party to be involved in something that doesn’t make you supremely happy. Life is too short.
No matter what life does go on after a break up- even though sometimes it doesn’t seem like it will. And whether you believe it or not, the best is yet to come. What have you learned after all of your break ups?
