1/10The reason I broke up
We all dream about meeting our ‘someone special’ and spending a happily-ever-after life with that person. But in reality, relationships are a tricky affair and are not as dreamy as we think them to be. Situations change, people change and there could be times when parting ways is the best thing to do.
2/10When the relationship that no longer serves its purpose
A relationship is a two-way street and both the partners have to put constant efforts to make it work. I was madly in love with my partner but the relationship did not bring me happiness. I dated someone who was emotionally unavailable and treated me like a door mat. After putting my best efforts for three long years, I decided to part our ways. But guess what, this break up turned out to be a game changer in my life.
3/10Distance gives you perspective
They say distance makes hearts grow fonder but in my case, it made me come to terms with the reality. I got the time to sit back and analyse what all went wrong in the relationship. After weighing all the pros and cons, I was actually in a happy space post break-up and excited to see what life has in store for me.
4/10I realised where I went strong
Unfortunately, I was under an illusion that things would fall into place one day and kept clinging to this hope for three long years. I was not strong enough to take a step back because I feared I won’t find someone else and maybe, this is how a relationship is meant to be. This break-up helped to shatter the myths I had created myself and set myself free from constant unhappiness.
5/10I shifted my focus on healing myself
I shifted my focus on becoming the better, smarter version of myself. I read books, joined a gym, enrolled in a pottery class and decided to fall in love with myself before loving someone else. Self-love is the best kind of love, isn’t it?
