If you are going through a breakup, or your heart feels like it is breaking due to unrequited or lost love, then here are some quotes to heal a broken heart that may provide you with some comfort. If you feel as though your world is ending, know at least that the majority of women out there know how you feel, as we all have had our hearts broken at one time or another. Read these quotes to heal a broken heart and let yours start to mend...
1. ''There Will Come a Time You’ll See with No More Tears, and Love Will Not Break Your Heart, but Dismiss Your Fears..."
"... get over your hill and see what you find there, with grace in your heart and flowers in your hair." - Mumford & Sons. Although it doesn't feel like it right now, there are better things to come for you. The love that you truly deserve is waiting, and far from make you cry, it will fill your heart with fearlessness and joy. This is one of the most hopeful of the quotes to help heal a broken heart.
2. ''Giving up Doesn't Always Mean You Are Weak..."
"... sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go." - Author Unknown. As much as it hurts and you feel like you will never be the same again, inside of you there is a really strong person who knows, that they did what was best. One day you’ll look back on some of your saddest days and know that it was all for good reason.
3. ''if Your Love Does Not Work with That Person..."
" ... it just means that someone else loves you more." - Author Unknown. This is one of the quotes to heal a broken heart that you should truly hold onto when in doubt. If love let you go, or you had to let love go, then it’s because there is more love out there for you with someone else. Have faith, and know that everything happens for a reason.
4. ''You’re Going to Fall in Love Some Many Times before You Find the One You Will Be with Forever..."
"So think of it this way. You’re just one broken heart closer to Happily Ever After.'' - Author Unknown. What a silver lining this quote is! Instead of looking at your situation as the end of the world, what if you saw it as one step further in the direction to what you truly deserve?
5. Wise Words
''Because sometimes there is no easy way out. You just have to grin and bear it. Sometimes the only escape route is to go straight through the flames, just brace yourself and bite your lip. Sometimes you have to sever the ties clean off. Because in every relationship there comes a point when the damage is too much and no matter how good it once was, the memories can’t sustain you. You have to save yourself knowing all the while it will hurt like hell. Because you can’t keep giving someone everything if you get nothing in return.'' - Author Unknown. Need I say more?
6. ''There Were Reasons We Met, Reasons for the Good Times and Reasons for the Bad Times, and Most Importantly a Reason to End..."
"We have more to learn, more to experience, and more loving to do in this lifetime." - Author Unknown. Life is far too short to spend crying over what could have been, be thankful for all you had and be optimistic that there is so much more to come for you.
7. "when Love is Lost, do Not Bow Your Head in Sadness..."
"... Instead keep your head up high and gaze into Heaven, for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal." - Author Unknown. Now this quote is just plain gorgeous. It’s okay to be sad, but try to keep your head high as you never know when they’ll send your healed heart back down to you... love it.
8. "There is No Remedy for Love but to Love More.'' - Henry David Thoreau
After all the tears, the anger and the sadness has passed, the best and the only thing you can do is continue to give and receive love like you have never lost love before. It’s the only way to heal a broken heart; by feeding it with more love.
9. "Don't Worry about Losing..."
"If it is right, it happens - the main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away." John Steinbeck. If it is meant to be, it will be. Don’t spend your time chasing someone who doesn't want to be caught. If they are right for you, they won’t need chasing.
10. ''Lots of People Want to Ride with You in the Limo..."
"... but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down." - Oprah Winfrey. This may seem a little out of place alongside the other quotes to heal a broken heart, but at the end of the day the message is clear. You want someone who will be there rain or shine, and if it’s raining for you right now and they are not around - then are they really worth it?
We all know that heartache can’t be cured by the flick of a switch or an insightful quote, but it is important to do what we can in order to one day feel better again. Cry your heart out, listen to sad music, watch The Notebook until your face falls off; whatever you feel like. I’ll finish on an old proverb that always sees me through tough times ‘This too shall pass’ … and you can be certain it will.
