This Is The Purpose Of A Breakup That Allows You To Learn Your Own Way Of Love

There is so much advice on relationships, but for once I found advice that isn’t “he’s too good for you” or “just drink Tequila” or “Netflix and Chill was so 2015”.

I like this post from Thought Catalog because it makes us not play the victim. Often times we want to be in a relationship, but we don’t know why. We don’t know what void we want to fill or what we want it to add to our lives.

For once, I was able to say what I wanted and say how I felt and why what I was in didn’t make sense.

We Are Never Getting Back Together: 

The fact is, I don’t want to get back together with anyone I was dating. I don’t want to date the people I did in the past. They were great or not-so-great during those stages in my life, but what I want to give and what I need from a relationship is something these men could never give me and I could never give them.

“I’m telling you that in the wake of a breakup, the relationship you must take up next is a relationship with yourself.

You’ve got to answer your own whys.

Like, why was this particular person in your life? Was there an initial void you imagined the relationship might fill up and replace? Where did that void come from? In the beginning, what were you hoping love would relieve you of?”
