When breakups occur, it can be hard to look beyond it. Particularly if you were madly in love or didn’t want the relationship to end. Sometimes the relationship was long-term, lasting for years, and now it’s hard to know what to do with yourself. I’d ask you to embrace this idea: freedom at the end of a breakup.
You’ve probably heard this before, but I want you to truly consider it.
Alexander Graham Bell is quotes as saying, “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.” This applies to dating as much as it applies to life. Don’t spend all of your time looking at what once was. Try to see this breakup as a new chance at life. It’s a brand new start.
This feeling can be thrilling if you let it be. Go out and do something new that you’ve always wanted to do, but held back from before. Let your time be now. Don’t hang back in the past. Don’t focus on the future. Try to live in the NOW. Let the present moment overwhelm you with all of its gifts. You’re now free, whether or not you want to be. Try to make the most of it.
