Getting over a relationship is hard. Very hard. My dad once told me that a breakup is much like mourning the loss of someone you care about. The relationship itself has died, so there is a natural grieving process. During this process, you can either drive yourself insane, or you can move on in a healthy way. These 30 breakup quotes will help keep things in perspective and help you heal.

These 30 Breakup Quotes Will Help You Heal
“You may think you’ll never get over it but you will.”
It may be hard right now to imagine you will ever be without this pain but you will. You’ll be stronger, wiser, and more whole.
“Sometimes you have to forget what you want to remember what you deserve.”
They are not one in the same. Many times the thing we want in a relationship is no where close to what we deserve. We deserve so much more than what we typically think we do.
“Good things are coming down the road. Don’t stop walking.”
Keep your head up and take one step at a time. This breakup only means it wasn’t meant to be.
“Life goes on.”
This is a short and not so sweet break up quote. It may sting to hear this but it’s the absolute truth. Life goes on and it will be better.
“If you are brave enough to love them, you are strong enough to let them go.”
If I could only select only one breakup quote that was the most powerful for me, it would be this one. It’s hard to feel strong after heartache. We usually feel weak and alone. But you still have strength, you just have to look for it. You are strong. Remember that.
Breakups don’t necessarily mean forever. Sometimes we just need a little space to re-evaluate what it’s important to us. I was a couple weeks away from marrying my soul mate before we broke up and called it off. That hurt. But it gave us a chance to reflect and now we are together, married (one year later), and stronger than ever.
If you know anyone who could use one of these quotes today, please share it with them.

What a powerful breakup healing quote! This breakup may hurt now but it may hurt worse trying to work things out. Know when to walk away.

“Respect yourself enough to know you deserve the very best.”
This breakup is a reminder that it wasn’t what you deserved. You deserve so much more.
“When your past calls, don’t answer. It has nothing new to say.”
You will either be tempted to call your ex or they will contact you. I can’t give you any specific relationship advice on what to do in this case because every situation is different. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you make your decision with a clear head. Not in anger, loneliness, or fear.
“I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness.”
