The phrase "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" is actually true.
Although you are not dead, or even really close to being dead, you are still mentally dead. You just lost your lover of a couple months/years and it sucks. But the months/weeks it takes you to get over him/her will be how you grow stronger. By the end of the heart break, you will be 100% happier and stronger.
You are still loved.
Something you forget is how much you are still loved. You will always be loved, sometimes you just cant see it. But family and friends will be your key to this breakup and you know they will help you and build you up.
You will pick up new hobbies.
You will find so many new hobbies and you will be so much happier. So go out and be happier, show the world what you're amazing at!
The breakup is better than later.
"The sooner the better" is actually very true. You learn to love that it happened at the time it did. Because if it happened in a shorter time you would've just fallen in love with that person and it would've hurt way more.
You learn to think more postive and you become a better person.
The first couple weeks are really hard. But after those weeks you see all of the positive. As well as be more healthy because change is amazing!
You learn to love the little things more.
Staying out with friends and laughing so hard you cry is amazing. But trust me, it is 10 times better while you are heartbroken. You get to see the better part of life, such as how clouds look like Obama or how bees are way too adorable.
You get closer with people and God.
While this breakup is basically you just losing someone who you were super close to, you learn to get closer to people you usually didn't talk to. If you are a religious person, you learn to pray more and get closer to God.
No more worrying.
While half of your relationship was you worrying about what your other half might be doing, or if they were with some other person, it all stops when you guys breakup (or a couple weeks later). Next time you'll have more trust in your other half!
As much as breakups suck, there are so many positive outcomes if you decide to see it. You will always learn to get over it.
