20 Best Taylor Swift Quotes & Song Lyrics About Heartbreak & Breakups

Taylor Swift knows from experience that heartbreak sucks. She's been through a handful of break ups and they've taught her many lessons.

No matter how many times it happens, heartbreak never gets easier to deal with. It can feel like you're the shell of the fun-loving, lively person you once were and leave you feeling like you'll never be yourself again. You'll think of the happy moments you shared, but the breakup will play on repeat in your head. You'll cry, and while some might stuff their face with ice cream, others can't even think about food after a breakup.

You might feel like this feeling will last forever, but know that the pain is temporary. Your broken heart will heal with time. 

It can take a while to finally get over someone. Moving on is a slow process, but it is doable. Instead of thinking negatively, distract yourself with other thoughts. It's so important to focus on self-love after a heartbreak. A broken heart can't break YOU, remember that.  


We live and we learn from each relationship we enter, but some lessons are harder to learn than others. Eventually, when the heartbreak fades, you'll come out stronger than you've ever been. In the meantime, cry, grieve, lean on friends and do everything you need to do to feel better. It's good to let it out before you let it go. 

I know how you're feeling, because I'm dealing with a broken heart as well, but we'll ge through this together. And if Taylor Swift can get through a heartbreak and move on, so can we!
