Whether your boyfriend broke up with you or you found out that your crush already has a girlfriend, your heart feels like it’s been broken into a million tiny pieces. You want to spend the night with your best friend to share your sadness, but, unfortunately, she is out of town. What do you do? Don’t worry—there’s plenty of help out there. Here are some powerful messages that’ll give you the renewed energy to move on.
1. “Today’s heartbreak is for tomorrow’s happiness.”
This saying reminds you to maintain a positive outlook and keep an eye on the future. Of course, it’s difficult for anyone to feel positive immediately. But there’ll be a day in the not-too-distant future when you can look back and realize that the experience was just a stepping stone to a happier future.
2. “Be yourself. New love is waiting just around the corner.”
Some of you may blame yourself for the breakup or heartbreak. What you need to know is that it could’ve happened to anybody. Don’t lose yourself—just be yourself. Look forward to your new love that might be closer than you think.
3. “The future starts today, not tomorrow.” – Pope John Paul II
After you’re done shedding some tears, it’s time to take a step forward. The longer you feel sorry for yourself, the longer it will take to get out of the darkness. Remember that you are the key to opening the door to your future someday. So why not turn that “someday” into “today” and make the change immediately?
4. “It’s more convenient to hate than to forgive, but both are equally hard. Which would you choose?”
At times, you feel that you’ve been betrayed by a loved one, and you feel empty inside. It’s your choice to hate him or forgive him. Like this the above message says, if they are equally taxing, which would you rather choose?
5. “Turn around, and a headwind will soon become a tailwind.”
Your life is like a boat sailing across a huge ocean, navigating through the wind. Sometimes, you encounter a headwind that devastates you. When you’re heartbroken, it’s difficult to clearly see the path ahead in the turbulent headwind. When that happens, it’s important to stop and consider if there is a different path you can take. By changing your course, you can enjoy a tailwind that will help you navigate the rough waters.
6. “When you are chasing happiness for yourself, you won’t find it. When you want to make someone else happy, that’s when you truly find happiness.”
When you are heartbroken, you look for ways to find happiness for yourself. Like the quote states, when you find someone special in your life that you want to make happy, you may discover that true happiness is found in making a loved one happy. So, there is no need to rush.
7. “Fortune comes in by a merry gate.”
After experiencing heartbreak, it’s necessary to shed some tears to dispel your cooped-up feelings. Still, you’ll never find happiness if you keep on crying—laughter is the real key to happiness. Your smile will attract positive people and will bring you happiness in return.
8. “You are fine just the way you are.”
When you’re heartbroken, you might wonder if there’s something you could’ve done to make things better. Don’t second-guess yourself. Don’t try to invent something that’s not you. Be true to yourself and remind yourself that you are perfect just the way you are. Confidence will give you the drive to move forward.
