Heartbroken? Don’t Lose Hope

Heartbreak is inevitable. After all, we’re human. We fall for someone, we have dreams, we get our hopes up, and then sometimes things just don’t work out the way we want them to. After a heartbreak or disappointment, it’s extremely easy to decide to give up on finding love altogether. Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to go through life without a partner. There’s definitely some appeal to this lifestyle. You get to do what you want when you want to, and you never have to worry about getting your heart broken. I have often thought about how great this would be.

While many people do live successful, single lives, most others want to find someone to spend their life with.  But what happens when that person that you found ends up not being the person you thought, the person you planned to spend the rest of your life with? Do you keep searching, hoping there is someone else out there, or do you simply give up? You keep looking of course! Why?

Not Just One Person

There’s absolutely no way that this person who just broke your heart could possibly be the only person out there for you. It is ridiculous to think that you would only have one chance with one person and if you blew it, your time was up. Can you imagine if we lived our lives that way? We experience failure for a reason. From failure we learn to pick ourselves up and become the best version of ourselves. We didn’t learn to walk without falling many times first.

Our relationships work the same way. One failed relationship doesn’t mean that there isn’t someone else out there for you. Don’t ever let yourself believe that this moment of heartbreak should define the rest of your life.

You Owe It to Yourself

The most important reason to not give up is for you. You shouldn’t for one second think that your path in life brought you to heartbreak and that it ends here. Have respect for yourself and know your worth. Know that you deserve to find the right person. If it wasn’t who you thought it was, oh well. It doesn’t mean that you will never find them. Keep looking. You deserve to find the love of your life.

Second Chances Happen

We all know that a lot of relationships and marriages end. We also know that a lot of people get new partners or remarry. This is because they don’t give up. They’ve been hurt before but they still believe that they can find the right person. Use these people and their courage as inspiration. Not only have their lives been completely turned upside down, but they have found a way to turn the bad into bliss.

Putting yourself out there takes a great deal of risk. So many people have been badly hurt but instead of hiding away for the rest of their lives, the get back out there and try again. They know that they deserve to be happy and they are let nothing, even the fear of failing again get in their way. You have a choice to make. Choose to take a risk to find the happiness you deserve.
