Love is undeniably a beautiful thing; especially when it involves two people who really want to make it work. Sometimes, things don’t always work out the way we planned them, and this would usually result in a break up and in a worst-case scenario – divorce…
Going through a break up requires a lot of time and energy; it wouldn’t be wise to get involved again shortly after a break up. Depending on how bad things ended, some separations can leave people damaged and they may think that the best way to get over a past relationship is to be with someone else. It’s very important to take time before getting into a new relationship, because you may be bringing baggage from your previous relationship into the new one. Heartbreak on top of another will only do more harm than good.
One needs to realize what factors could have contributed to the break up. Again, seeing your own mistakes and knowing what to work on so that you don’t repeat the same mistake twice will save you from another heartbreak. Healing is an internal process that has nothing to do with outside factors; healing starts and ends with an individual. If you do not work on healing yourself, you will leave other people damaged.
