The first and most obvious of all the things you gain when you end a relationship is freedom! Be happy that you are no longer tied down to one person, who used to be on your mind every day. You no longer have to care about what your significant other thinks about your actions and you can do what makes you happy. While it might feel different and new, you will get into the groove of things pretty quickly.


An Understanding of What You Want

Ending a relationship can give you a clear picture of what you want for the future. The relationship ended for a reason: maybe your personalities clashed or you had different views. No matter what it is, now you know what you want and don’t want in a life long partner.


More Time

Admit it, relationships take a lot of time and work. However now that you are single, you have more time for friends and family or even for yourself. You can reconnect with old friends or just strengthen the bond between the existing ones. I am sure you can put this time to good use!


New People

They say there are plenty of other fish in the sea and they are absolutely right! You are now free to get to know people of the opposite gender with or without any romantic intention. You are finally not limited on communicating with others and can essentially interact with anyone you find interesting.



With every break up, you gain experience that can aid you in finding the right guy. You learn the best way to behave in a relationship and you discover different kinds of relationships that can exist. With every relationship comes wisdom and knowledge, and those two things never hurt!


A Clear Mind

It is typical of every woman to start fresh after every break up, which is why you might find yourself changing up your hair and redecorating your house. All of a sudden, there is a surge of new energy that you can channel into something else. You begin a new slate with a clear mind!


Thicker Skin

At the end of every relationship especially the toxic ones, you grow thicker skin and become a stronger person. Think back to the first break up you ever had, it probably strengthened your character in the long run. So don’t feel down because there is a bright side to every heartbreak.

Sometimes you may feel like you have nothing going for you after a major break up but in reality that is completely not the case. While you might lose a relationship that you have invested in, you get so much more out of it. You learn and discover new things about yourself that you wouldn’t have had otherwise. What did you learn about yourself through a recent breakup?

Shelli Rae: i got recently blindsided too and yes it hurts. ur mind wont stop wondering what went wrong or what could i have done better. but stay strong girl. it will all get better in time.

ten days I meant

I learned that I still have the capacity to love very deeply, and that I won't settle for second best!! 😊

this made me stronger for about 4 minutes omg I just want him back lol!

(Rest of recent post) he also got mad after he broke up with me and I told him I needed 30 days to just heal and trust you again and he was a complete immature jerk about it.

I didn't want the breakup and was clearly blindsided !!! so depressed and cry all the time

I absolutely agree!! if your in a relationship and get no credit for the things you do, u only get credit for mistakes( that everyone does) and to top it off you get sexually REJECTED.. I know this would be a uncomfortable start but it is what we weak ones really need 😔

awesome. I love this

that just because you had a past with someone doesn't mean your meant to have a future with them, also that love is truely blind

my fiancé & I were going on 8 years this August, yes he cheated...it's been almost 3 months & I have all types of emotions, what hurts the most is that he won't admit it & he has this anger towards me, he was such a sweet guy & responsible guy. I guess the anger probably is the guilt he is feeling. He was known to be this respectable guy, so I guess he feels embarrassed & is angry at himself for breaking my heart 🔪💔 he was crazy about me, I just don't get it. sigh*
