encouraging positive break up quotes

Breakups are hard. They are hard to accept and they are hard to move on from, especially if you were in love with this person.

When you are in love, you will feel like your heart is breaking or shattering into a million tiny pieces that you will never be able to move on from. Like there isn't even enough glue in the world to put back together all the pieces. It's hard, I know.

Even feel like you can't even breathe or live without this person in your life, but you can.

You may even want to just lay in bed, not take a shower, and cry yourself out over a gallon of chocolate ice cream. But that's OK to do at first if you need that. Everyone is different in how you cope with breakups. But don't get stuck in that rut. You can move forward, don't hold yourself responsible. Most likely, you are not the main reason.


When a breakup happens, it's important to remind yourself that there are better things out there for you. You will find your happiness again and you will be happier with this new person.

Loneliness will only be your friend for a little while, to give yourself some time to emotionally heal from your heartbreak. It's a good idea to not rebound fast after a breakup because you will be acting on your upset feelings and your need for love and attention, that you are not getting. But sometimes, it's for the best to take some time for yourself and grow into who you are. Find out who you are post-relationship.

Remember, relationships come and go. You will find something better out there next time, so don't feel like you have lost your one true love and not give yourself a chance at true happiness.

Here are some encouraging quotes to remind you that you are not alone and that you can get over this breakup stronger than you were before it.
