There's no sense in dwelling on how things could have gone differently.  Don't blame yourself- a myriad of factors added to your breakup. Always remember that you are deeply lovable, regardless of all your imperfections, and one day you will find deep love again. ~Think. Love. Live. 

 

When deep love is lost, it often feels that all is lost. As much as you are tempted to fear you will never find love again, trust that time will heal all.

~Think. Love. Live. 

 

God is closest to those with broken hearts.  ~Jewish Saying

 

A broken heart is just the growing pains necessary so that you can love more completely when the real thing comes along. ~JSB Morse

 

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.  ~ Unknown

 

To all the people in the world who feel empty
Grab onto a piece of my heart
For I feel empty too
And together we can make a chain of love.
~Astrid Alauda

 

Relationships are like glass.  Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.  ~Unknown

 

When those we love betray our trust,
We find the depth of human pain;
Oh, let me rise above these hurts
Until the sun shines, once again!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham

 

Love is like a puzzle.  When you're in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together.  ~Author Unknown

 

Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul. Activity will cleanse and brighten it. 

~Samuel Johnson

 

 

 

This is not a goodbye, my darling, this is a thank you. Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy, thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return. Thank you for the memories I will cherish forever. But most of all, thank you for showing me that there will come a time when I can eventually let you go. ~Nicholas Sparks

 

Somewhere your prince charming is waiting for you too. ~ Think. Love. Live

 

Every person you ever fall in love adds their own ingredients to the love you feel. Love is different with every new partner. It may not be better or worse, just different. It's impossible to predict how these ingredients fit together until they do.  If it doesn't work out with one person, all is not lost.

~Think. Love. Live. 

 

Have you ever been in love?  Horrible isn't it?  It makes you so vulnerable.  It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.  You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life.... You give them a piece of you.  They didn't ask for it.  They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore.  Love takes hostages.  It gets inside you.  It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.  It hurts.  Not just in the imagination.  Not just in the mind.  It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.  You're not alone.  ~Neil Gaiman

 

No matter how perfect things may have seemed, never forget how the rose glasses gleam when your heart is on fire and your mind is in love; he's not who you thought he was. ~Think. Love. Live.

 

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.  ~J.K. Rowling

 

Sadness flies away on the wings of time. ~Jean de La Fontaine

 

If a relationship ever feels to good to be true, it probably is. In these cases, at least one person wears a mask, lacking the courage to show their imperfections and vulnerabilities. If that person was you, learn how to be true to yourself for your next relationship; do not lose yourself in the cocktail of hormones love creates.  If the mask wearer was your partner, learn to notice the red flags and don't be afraid to require open and honest communication in every relationship.   ~Think. Love. Live. 

 

If it's truly meant to be, you will find each other again someday, when the timing is right and you both have grown.  It won't happen before you've forgotten him and moved on.  ~ Think. Love. Live.
