There doesn’t exist a person in this world who didn’t have a painful break-up in the past.
When you are going through it, you think of it as the end of the world, but later you realize it is all part of life. But it is easier when there is someone to take your hand through this painful experience.
Therefore, here are 5 things I wish I had been told when I was going through a break-up, which would have made everything a lot easier.
1. You will survive
When you are going through a nasty break-up, you think that the weight of the entire world has fallen on your shoulders.
For you, life has no meaning anymore and you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. In those moments of despair, you are positive that you’ll never get over this guy and that you’ll suffer forever. But I am here to tell you that everything will be OK.
I know you’ve heard this line far too many times but it really isn’t just an empty phrase—it’s the truth. Yes, you are going through a lot of emotional pain now but there will come a time when you’ll laugh at this.
I know that this pain seems unbearable and too much for you to handle at the moment but life will put you through more difficult situations and this break-up will look like a piece of cake. No matter what you think now, you’ll get better and you’ll survive.
2. He is not worth it
I assume that this is the last thing you want to hear right now but this guy is really not worth it. It will take a long time before you really understand this but he didn’t deserve everything you are going through now because of him.
This won’t reduce your suffering, because you still love him despite knowing this, but it is something you should repeat to yourself constantly.
He is not worthy of your tears, he is not worthy of all the sleepless nights and he is not worthy of your suffering.
Most of all, he is not worthy of you. It is simple—if he was worthy, he wouldn’t have put you through everything you are going through.
3. He is probably suffering as well
One of the first questions we all ask ourself when we are going through a heartbreak is if we are the only one feeling like this.
Does this guy also think of me? Does he miss me, even a little bit? Men like to pretend they are tough and that they rarely suffer for love. But I am here to tell you that all of that is bullshit.
He is probably suffering the same way you are but he just doesn’t show it. You are not the only one waiting for his phone call or stalking him on social media—he does it too.
But this shouldn’t be a sign for you to get back together with this guy, it should only help you stop feeling miserable about yourself.
4. He wasn’t the love of your life
When you are in the middle of a painful break-up, you probably think that this man is the love of your life. From this point of view, you are convinced that you never loved anyone the way you loved him and that you will never love again.
You think this man was your soulmate and that you’ll never find someone like him. And that is normal. But it doesn’t make it true. Trust me—this guy was probably not your soulmate or the love of your life and you’ll definitely love again, despite what you may think now.
Don’t let yourself fall into despair, thinking you’ll end up forever alone. Yes, you’ll probably spend some time consumed by this sadness you are feeling now but as soon as you meet someone new, it will go away.
There will come a man who will make you forget that this guy ever existed. All of this probably sounds unlikely and impossible for you but trust me, it will happen when you least expect it.
5. This will be a lesson for you
I know you probably think that this was the worst thing that could’ve happened to you.
You feel hopeless, like all of your dreams and hopes have been shattered into pieces. But trust me—there will come a time when you’ll realize this was the best thing that could’ve happened. There will come a time when you’ll see that he was your toughest lesson but that it was a valuable experience.
You don’t see it now but there will come a time when you’ll thank God that this man walked away from your life.
