Why Breakups Are Actually Learning Experiences

Written by Avery on Fri Jul 05 2024

Hey y'all, it's Avery here. Today I wanted to talk about something that most of us have experienced at some point in our lives - breakups. Yep, those heart-wrenching moments when you realize things just aren't working out with your significant other. But you know what? Breakups aren't the end of the world like they might seem at first. In fact, I've come to see them as valuable learning experiences.

I've had my fair share of breakups in my middle school years - yeah, can you believe it? Middle school drama is no joke. From awkward text message conversations to tear-filled phone calls, I thought each breakup was the end of the world for me. But looking back now, I see how much I've grown and learned from each one.

The first breakup was tough – he said we were better off as friends and that stung real bad. It took me a while to get over it but eventually; I realized that not every relationship is meant to last forever. And then there was the second one where she ghosted me completely – no explanation or closure whatsoever! At first, I felt angry and confused but later on; it taught me how important communication is in any relationship.

Breakup number three was probably the hardest because we both knew deep down that things weren't working out anymore. We decided together that it would be best if we went our separate ways amicably. This experience taught me about maturity and understanding when relationships need to come to an end.

Now don't get me wrong - breakups still suck big time! The pain of losing someone special never really goes away completely. But through all these experiences (and trust me there are more),  I’ve learned so much about myself and what truly matters in a relationship: honesty, communication, trust , respect , mutual understanding .

One thing all my past relationships have taught me is this: self-love should always come before anything else . If you don’t love yourself enough ,you will never be able to fully give love or receive love from another person . So take time after a breakup  to focus on yourself , learn who YOU are without being defined by someone else , and remember : You deserve happiness too!

If there's one thing life has taught me so far ,it’s this : every goodbye brings a new hello . So embrace change with open arms , learn from your mistakes,and keep moving forward . Because who knows ? Maybe your next hello could lead to something even better than before .

Until next time, Avery
