But to anyone who has experienced the guilt of ending a relationship, know this: it is no one’s fault. It just is.
This is the numbness you feel right after a breakup. It’s the frozen terror you feel when you receive bad news. It’s the shock that hasn’t worn off a tragedy. The liminal space is the unprocessed aftermath of trauma. It is emotional limbo. It demands some sort of movement, yet to move forward feels achingly wrong. To be in this sort of transitional space can potentially be transformative, if you know how to make use of your journey before you step over the threshold.
It’s unfortunate that you’re no longer the best thing in my life. You’re just 382 photos on my phone that I can’t get myself to delete.
What is there to gain from heartbreak?
Start every morning by dancing to one of the songs from the playlist.
It does not seem to matter whether the love lasted two weeks or two decades. When it ends, everyone wants you to get over it — fast. Why?
After the breakup, you’ll be able to understand how you both dealt with it because the loyal one is the one who stays single for a while to heal and understand what could be improved for the next relationship.
Be extremely truthful with each other and accept that the final outcome of that discussion very well could be the decision to end things.
The day I started to accept that we are no longer in each other’s lives, I also accepted that we didn’t want the same things.
Once a breakup becomes inevitable, both people are usually sensing it even if one person doesn’t want to admit it.
