3 Love Lessons About Relationships From Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik's Breakup
Love, Entertainment And News

RIP, ZaGi.

By Kenzi

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have called it quits after two years of dating.

The news of their split came after a few weeks of engagement rumors. But fans began to speculate that something was up when Zayn posted this photo on Instagram with the caption, “When life throws you lemons, catch em so they don’t hit you in the face.”

Both members of the high profile couple confirmed their split Tuesday on Twitter. Zayn not only complimented Gigi but also thanked his fans for respecting their privacy during this hard time. *cues tears.*

Gigi also reciprocated the love and appreciation.

Whether you’re famous or not, breakups are the worst. It’s embarrassing and painful to have to explain to every single person why your relationship didn’t work out. However, the way you and your ex handle the breakup is extremely vital to helping you get over the painful situation. Here are the three lessons we should all learn from ZaGi’s breakup.

Lesson #1: Mutual Respect 

The mutual respect this couple appears to have for each other is unreal. May we all strive to have this much love, respect, and gratitude for the people we choose to spend our time with. Don’t start to hate on someone who used to be your world and whom you cared about. It’s not the way to go. It also won’t help you get over the breakup.

Lesson #2: How to handle a breakup on social media 

Since you’re probably not a world-famous supermodel or singer, you don’t have to come out with a formal statement to post on your Facebook wall since the only people who will see it are your extended family and random people from high school. But if you want to post on social media, make sure that your post is positive and reflects well on you. Both Zayn and Gigi’s posts were uplifting and positive, therefore this reflects well on them. Also, they mutually posted about it. Make sure that if your ex doesn’t post about you, make sure that he or she knows that you’re going to post about your breakup.

Lesson #3: What is meant to be, will be 

Gigi also gave the best advice that we all need to remember.: “As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will always be.” 

This is the only quote that I would advise you to print off and tape to your mirror. Whether you are heartbroken, trying to figure out your current relationship or feel single af, always remember, what is meant to be will always be. Your life is moving in the direction its supposed to. Life closes doors and provides roadblocks in order to protect you from things that aren’t meant for you. You never know what will happen in the future.

I like to think of life as a game of archery. Imagine you’re the arrow and life is the archer. The archer has to pull the arrow back in order to aim the arrow to insure that the arrow will make it to the target. So when you feel like life sucks because you just got knocked down from a breakup or hate being single af, remember life is about to spring you into something wonderful. So just focus on the future and keep aiming.

Have faith in the fact that what is meant to be will be. There is no need to fear the future or live in the past. Once you learn to live with the fact that life will always give you every single thing you need, that’s the moment you’ll be able to come to terms how any relationship turns out. Thank you Zayn and Gigi for teaching us what #RelationshipGoals truly is.
