“I’ve been hurt one too many times to let myself fall in love again,” said everyone who has ever had a relationship go awry.
Even I have said that clichéd line before too, but do you really want to give your ex the satisfaction of depriving you of the most beautiful thing out there?
I certainly did not. It was new love that reminded me that this world is not a terrible place. It was love that reminded me that it is okay to be myself. It is love that makes me want to get up each morning.
Each bad relationship ends for a reason. As hard as breakups are, I would not go back to change any of mine.
Just because a relationship ends badly does not mean that the entire relationship was a waste. It means that you have learned all you could learn from that person and that it is time to move on.
Moving on. It may not be that simple and it shouldn’t be.
Give yourself enough time to emotionally heal. Now, when the next person starts to get to know you, you’ll have your emotions sorted out, and the relationship will be enjoyable.
There are many enjoyable things about being in love. For starters, just the excitement of knowing that you are loved back is probably one of the best feelings in the world.
No matter how bad your day has been, seeing the person you are in love with can do a whole 180 on your day. You never have to do anything alone, and if you do, there is at least one person in this scary world that will have your back.
When two people are honestly in love, trust issues aren’t really a problem. There should never be that nagging voice in the back of your mind wondering what your significant other is doing or if they’re unfaithful behind your back.
Why? Because you love each other and you both know that neither of you want anything different nor would risk losing what you have.
I could give you all the advice in the world, but it wouldn’t really matter. What matters is what you do with it. Take it. Forget the ex.
There is truly someone better out there that can make you happy again. Cherish the time you got to spend with them, but you do not waste the time being sad about it.
Relationships are happy, that’s the way they should be. Everyone deserves to be happy in the end. Find the person that truly makes you happy and don’t let them go.
