Have you ever felt like your entire heart was about to burst into a million tiny pieces? Or maybe it felt like a knife had just plunged through your heart? If so, then you have probably experienced what’s known as a heartbreak. A heartbreak can seem like one of the hardest things to go through because you were so attached to the other person. You meet this wonderful person and you begin to think that you could spend the rest of your life with them, and then in a blink of an eye, all your dreams diminish, and you are no longer with that person you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with.

It’s a difficult thing to overcome this horrible pain that’s held in your heart because you continue to wonder why that person doesn’t feel the same way or why you weren’t good enough. You’ve had so many memories with the other person from laughing so hard that you started to cry, to telling the other person the secrets you’ve never told anyone else.You come to the realization that these memories are over, and will never happen again. A part of you almost feels like you wasted all that time with that person, and sometimes many even think that life isn’t worth living after a heartbreak, but why not?

Why isn’t life worth living? We can’t let one person let us feel like our life isn’t worth living anymore, and that’s why sometimes a heartbreak can be good. You don’t have to regret all the memories you had with that person, instead you can view them as a learning experience. We can see them as something that helps us grow more as a person, and we can become stronger because of it. Our life was never supposed to be easy, and heartbreak will always be one of those devastating things. Heartbreaks will never feel good.

I think, in a way, some areas of our lives were meant to be hard because I believe that everything happens for a reason. If your relationship with a person had never happened would you be the person you are today? Sure it was painful, but you grew from the experience. Heartbreak shouldn’t have to be something where you almost don’t want to keep going, but a chance to find who you are. You have the chance to explore new things you’ve never explored before, take spontaneous adventures, and be comfortable with who you are. When you were in a relationship, you were always stuck with the other person, and not really getting to do what YOU truly wanted to do.

You don’t have to be tied down anymore, instead you’re able to run free and do whatever your heart desires. Find what your passions are and take them to places you never even knew existed. Be comfortable with the person YOU ARE. You don’t have to try to be someone else for the other person because you are unique and special in your own way. Having a heart broken can be a good thing so that you can break away from that person and realize what a strong and amazing person YOU have become.

We shouldn’t get so caught up in one little relationship, when there are millions of things out there waiting for us to experience. Life is about the risks we have taken and all the enjoyable times we’ve spent with the people we love. Heartbreaks can be a good thing because they can make us realize that there’s so much more to life than a simple break up. They make us realize that we shouldn't let one small heartbreak bring us down, instead we should smile a little brighter, hold our heads a little higher and enjoy the people we've become.
