Going through a breakup is hard. It’s horrible to the point that you start to question yourself and your existence. It is something that you would never wish to happen to anyone, not even to your greatest enemy. There are some things in life that you have to accept no matter how hard it is. Sometimes, all you need is a time off from everything that is happening. It may take you a long process, but you have to know that moving on doesn’t happen overnight especially to those who have been dumped. Your ex may have left you, but you still have your best friend. Here are five reasons why you should consider travelling with your best friend after a breakup:
1. You have someone who will comfort you
Yes. You don’t really have to worry too much. Your best friend is the greatest company you could ever have. Book that flight to a destination you haven’t been to and invite your best friend. Sometimes, you just need to get away from a city that reminds you of your former lover. Your best friend will be there to comfort you as you go through this hard but fulfilling process of moving on.
2.You have someone who will listen to your sentiments
Talking to someone is probably one of the best things you could ever do to be relieved. While it’s okay to process yourself and be alone for a while, it is also important to consider talking to a friend especially when you feel depressed and lonely. Not everyone gets to open up to their family regarding heartbreak sanities and it is great to have a best friend who have witnessed your journey. A best friend knows how to listen to your problems and thoughts so you better be comfortable in laying out your feelings.
3. You have someone who will give you honest advice
This is what you need. Yes, you may voice out to your best friend how much you love your ex. You may express how much the relationship is worthy of saving. But sometimes, you have to realize that there is a reason why your relationship ended and that there is nothing you can do anymore. Your best friend will surely be honest with you and give you real advice that may hurt you at first but once you’ve moved on, you’ll realize your best friend is right all along.
4.You have someone who will cry with you
There is nothing like crying near the ocean. Especially with someone who will never leave you. Your best friend will surely be there to join your cry while having a booze. One great thing about this is the fact that you won’t feel alone. What if your best friend is broken too? Not that that’s a good thing but it could actually help you and it will make you think that you’re not the only one going through the process of letting go.
5. You have someone who will stay, even if everyone you love decides to leave
That’s what best friends are for, right? When the world decides to turn its back from you, aside from your family, your best friend is just always there to stay with you until the end. Ask yourself, why did your best friend join you on your travels in the first place? Because he/she wants to help you and that there is unconditional love and support in friendships. No matter how many heartaches you experience, your friend will always be there to comfort, guide and make you calm. Breakups are stressful and difficult to indulge but you have to accept that some things happen for a reason.
The world may have felt doomed when you got dumped by the love of your life. But always remember that you don’t have to leave everything behind to be okay, you just have to take a break so you could stand up again and explore the world. A best friend’s company is a great way for you to not feel sad and depressed so having someone who could fill the spot that was once your ex’s is good. No, we are not talking about rebound here. Travelling is a great way to move on and doing it with the person who knows a lot of things about you is important and necessary.
