40 Best Quotes That Will Help You Get Over A Breakup

Going through the pain of a breakup

A breakup can be one of the most painful things to face. A breakup that is mutual is different than a heartbreak. Your partner decides to end the relationship and wants to move on with life. The reasons for a breakup could be plenty, and many times, a breakup comes at the moment when you least expect it. It is extremely painful to hear your partner say that they don't love you anymore and want freedom from the relationship. This could be shattering and heart-stabbing. You might even feel the ground slip beneath you, especially when your partner wants to leave you for another. Even if you have been feeling something amiss in your relationship, the final moment of the breakup could be worse than you can ever imagine. Love does this to you. Your beloved becomes your entire world and your reason to live. A breakup brings along with it the pain of rejection, a bruised ego and a horrible feeling of worthlessness. The initial pain and disbelief may further give way to anger. This could be a terrible state of mind to stay in. Written below are some motivational quotes for someone who is going through the pain of a breakup. A breakup doesn't end your world. What you have got to understand is that something that is not meant for you, will never stay with you. And something that was always yours will come back to you eventually. Agreed, this is easier said than done and a person who goes through it only knows the agony of it, but a breakup is something that many of us have gone through. While everyone's pain and reasons might be different, one thing is the same for everyone and that is that time heals every pain. It is just a matter of time, that you will feel normal once again. And while you are going through it, refer to some 40 amazing quotes written below by people who have been there and moved on gracefully with their lives.

7. “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” – Candace Bushnell

Is your relationship worth your self-respect? There should be no terms and conditions for any relationship to thrive. Mutual self-respect is an important aspect of any relationship. Your heartbreak is not a heartbreak but a break of your self-respect.

I'm just going to be straight forward and ask. Is your sex life fulfilling? Do you feel safe and comforted? Protected and loved? Absence of ease and ability to relax in their presence. This is for guys and girls...Do they take every opportunity to lift you up and inspire you? Do they rub your back and feet after a long day? Sneak you your favorite candies and snacks? Do they tickle you when your grumpy and dance in the rain with you? If your lover is being a negative Nancy or just isn't being who they could be realize that you are worth more than you could ever begin to imagine...Never let anyone's opinion of you make you feel any less of yourself. Love yourself over everything. Many of us settle for less or get caught in unhealthy relationships. The fear of being alone makes us unable to walk away. If you're not being treated like a King/Queen then maybe it's time for you to let go so you can find time to find your other half I guarantee that they are searching for you too. Life is short and we should live every moment happy as we can be. Many of us are stuck in an self perpetuated obligation or addiction. If you can't get away seek out help, in the form of family, counseling or any form of leadership. We all get into these down moments and sometimes need help. Free yourself so you can begin to live again. I believe in you, and I know you can do it.
