dear person going through a break up,
here are some quotes and articles that helped me through mine.
when one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. – alexander graham bell (from here)
hesitantly allow yourself to feel relief for having escaped a relationship that only the darkest places in your heart know was wrong for you.
orchestrate jealousy-inducing schemes even though they leave you feeling vapid and transparent every single time.
oscillate between pouring every ounce of yourself into work and staring blankly at a computer screen, watching your ex’s chat icon turn red green orange grey.
forgive others, not because they deserve your forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
when two people really care about each other, they always find a way to make it work. not matter how hard it is.
if someone seriously wants to be part of your life, they will seriously make an effort to be in it. no reasons. no excuses.
do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won’t be an end.
apologizing doesn’t always mean you’re wrong and the other person is right. it means you value your relationship more than your ego.
life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile.
the first to apologize is the bravest, the first to forgive is the strongest, and the first to forget is the happiest.
men are like cabs (from sex and the city)
“i did all of this after one day realizing that my single life probably wouldn’t last forever. i could walk out the door one day and meet the person of my dreams and the whole thing would come to an end” (from real talk: single life)
i hope this helps.
