Break-Ups Will Lead You to the Person Meant for You (Let Go and Move Forward)


Writing is his passion. It is his way to speak to and inspire the world.


Break-ups? Ouch!

Indeed, it is wrecking, that is if the word painful does not suffice the hurt from the break-up you have had. I knew there is no such word that could completely describe the devastation it brings to you. You have already shed buckets of tears. You have spent many nights thinking about what went wrong. You have had days you do not like going out of your room or house. You have lost your appetite. You start asking yourself. Am I not worthy of being loved? What is wrong with me? Could I still live without him or her?

Indeed it can cause insecurity, depression, anxiety or even death.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

— Psalm 147:3

To experience pain after a break-up is reasonable because investing one's emotion is the most painful investment one could have. It goes along with saying goodbye to the memories you two have created and wished to continue. It is also the end of a routine you do together. It is like pulling out something which has been in your system. It is excruciating, but it is inevitable. So you have to deal with it. You have to move forward.


I knew you wanted to have a fairytale love story. But it does not come easy. Like any fairytales on the big screen, there would be challenges to overcome before the happy ending. So the break-up and the pain you are experiencing are one of those you need to surpass. It does not define what kind of person you are, but it will help you become the person you intend to be. It will make you wiser and stronger.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

— Ecclesiastes 3:11

If you try to look for successfully married couples around you and have a chance asking them if they have experienced break-ups, surely most of them would answer yes. And do you think they could find their perfect match if they stopped by the time they got hurt? So do not succumb to your pain now. Get up. It is time to let go. Be hopeful and faithful. A better life is waiting for you. Make progress of yourself. Apply the lessons you have learned from the experience. Do not rush. Be patient. After all, in God's time and when you are ready, a new door will open that will lead you to the person you can be one, your other half, your perfect match.

I like the line..Life is stranger than fiction.

Happy endings don't always have beautiful beginnings. Even fairytales have their own fair share of roadblocks.

Endure the pain.

Move on.

See the world.

Your the "one" might still be on the way.

After all, life is stranger than fiction.

Breakups can be difficult because they are the most intimate type of rejection. However, with hope a person can find a mate who is better suited for them.

This is a very good article as I think most everyone has had a breakup in their past. I am so happy in my marriage of 23 years.
