Dealing with a Break-up

Hey guys,

So this is a post i've been thinking about for a while now.

If you are looking for a post that says you should hold on to them even though they left, they'll come back, this is not that post. This is a post that says, you deserve better, so start living your life again.

Break ups hurt. Whether it's your fault or not. A few people close to me have gone through them recently and so I thought i'd share a few of the little bits of advice and quotes (surprise surprise) that got me through when I needed it.

Before saying anything else I just want to say, that if someone left you, you deserve better than someone who thinks they can do better than you. Unless they left you because you cheated, because that was a horrible thing to do and you need to take this opportunity to question your life choices and become a better person. Seriously. That's not ok.

Let's turn to Pinterest. (At this point my blog has pretty much become an ode to Pinterest) All of the following pictures can be found with their original links here :)

This first one was my favourite. Reasons he isn't good enough for you:

No one should do any of these things to you. You deserve to be with someone who wants to make you smile every single day, and would never dream of hurting you.

For now it may feel like the worst thing in the world, but you WILL get through it, and you will be a stronger person because of it.

It will hurt, only a fool would say that it doesn't hurt to get your heart broken, but why keep people in your life that don't value you in theirs? 

If you look for ways to seek revenge on someone, you are still giving them a power over you. They know that it still bothers you. The best thing you can do is to accept it, and move on. I won't say you should forget, because you shouldn't ever regret anything in life, everything is a lesson, and you need to remember those lessons. But just don't let it hold you back.

A hard truth: 
If they miss you, they'll call. If they want you, they'll say it. If they care, they'll show it. If not, they aren't worth your time, because you obviously aren't worth theirs.

You will be ok. You might not feel like it right now, but you will. The problem with being honest and always saying what you feel is that you think everyone else does too. But there are people who will, so stop chasing the wrong ones and the right one will come along.

Most importantly, stop giving them your happiness. Unfriend them on facebook, don't check their twitter, stop caring what they put on instagram and delete their number from your phone. You might think you want to know what they are doing, but you will feel so much better if you just remove them. Trust me.

I'll leave you with one last quote:

Love, Amylou x
