7 Positive Things to Take from a Break-up ...


Positive things to take from a break-up, you say?

I don’t think so!

What good can possibly come out of a break-up?

Well, I didn’t think anything could – but time and perspective will soon make you think differently.

Let’s be honest – everyone knows break-ups are just horrible, whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee.

But, as with everything in life, it’s always possible to look for the positives, or at least the lessons you’ve learnt.2

So, here are seven positive things you should take from a break-up.


You might not see your freedom as one of the positive things to take from a break-up at first, especially if you didn’t really want to be free.

But try to think of it at first as a weight off your mind – no more worrying about the other person, no obligations or responsibilities!

Then, as time goes on, think about how much fun you can have;

more time to spend with friends, dating, meeting new people – it’s like a whole new lease on life!

I try not to think about it even though it was a five year relationship. It happened for a reason.

Thank you for this. I just went through a break up today and I'm really trying to think as positively as I can. It went down smoothly but I know I will be crying my eyes out these next couple of days before I start feeling any better. But nonetheless thank you.

I agree with Miss Me....I left my ex back in July of last year and it was the best thing I ever did. I ended up leaving my career I loved, but ended up moving back in with family and it's been the best move ever. I started a job with Wells Fargo, which is a great company to work for, and found my home church now at First Family Church in Ankeny, IA. Just saying...keep your chin up and realize that you can do all through Christ who strengthens you!

Make sure to end the relationship on a good note! There's no point in causing unnecessary drama. Start becoming the person you need to be for your future partner...there's always hope! I got dumped on Valentines Day and it's been a hard week but this article helped me to wake up! Thanks a bunch!
