Breakup Quote #1: “Inhale the Future, Exhale the Past”

This is all about visualization, which is wonderful a meditative technique.

All you need to do is sit down in a quiet room with your hands on your knees. Close your eyes and start taking deep breaths using your whole lung capacity.

Visualize inhaling positive thoughts, experiences and feelings, then imagine exhaling all the dark emotions currently hurting you.

Just a few minutes of this will make your body feel lighter, and your mind feel quieter. It’s a useful technique to take you through all stages of your life and is a great stress reliever.

Breakup Quote #2: “Sometimes Your Heart Needs More Time to Accept What Your Mind Already Knows.”

This quote is particularly helpful if you were the person to call for the breakup.

Often in life we ignore red flags, or situations that just don’t seem right, because we don’t want a relationship to end.

There are many reasons for this – perhaps you have many years of memories together, or you’re scared of being lonely. Whatever it is, it’s totally justified no matter what that judgmental voice in your head says!

If you’ve decided to act on those feelings and take the tough decision to end your relationship, well, good for you! That is a hugely strong (and brave) step to take.

You’ll likely experience doubt at one time or another so this quote might make you power through it. Give yourself space and time for your heart to catch up to your head.

Breakup Quote #3: “If You Don’t Leave Your Past in The Past, It Will Destroy Your Future. Live for What Today Has to Offer, Not for What Yesterday Has Taken Away.”

It’s a lengthy one but we love the message. It’s about understanding where you have come from and where you’re headed.

Many of life’s bad experiences end up being extremely formative to your future self. They may feel terrible in the moment but if you can learn from them, you can use them to your advantage.

Having said that, it’s important not to drag that baggage through your life in a negative light. Leave the past where it belongs. It’s understandable to be weary but don’t let it stop a new relationship from flourishing.

Take stock of everything good in your life right now if you’re coping with a breakup. Reflect on the friends you can rely on, your bond with your family, your great career.

Try not to just focus on what your life is lacking. That way, you will move forward happy and satisfied that your world is full.

Breakup Quote #4: “Stop Looking for Happiness in The Same Place You Lost It.”

Preach! You might not even realize you’re doing this but it’s important to recognize the signs.

Even if a relationship made you miserable, it’s normal to quickly forget about the bad times and reminisce about the good. You may even consider making another go of it.

We say, take some time to really think this through.

Is the root cause of the breakup caused by behavior that was somewhat acceptable, a genuine mistake, or downright outrageous?

No matter how minor, it was obviously enough for one of you to call it off. That means it can’t be just ignored or brushed under the rug, no matter how much time has gone by.

If deep down you know breaking up was the right thing to do, try finding happiness in other areas of your life.

Try a new exercise class, take a course to learn a new skill or make daily walks a part of your new routine. Stop and smell the roses, rather than getting stuck in the past.

Breakup Quote #5: “Live in The Moment”

You might feel you will never be happy again. But, in time, you will.

It may not be today, or even next month, but with a little open heartedness you can find a small piece of happiness every day. Over time, those small moments of happiness will build up. Before you know it, life will feel good enough.

One way to start this process is to focus on this very moment.

Thinking about the future can be extremely daunting and thinking about the past can be hurtful. If you find your mind wandering, bring it back to the present day. Try to stop worry or anxiety before it escalates.

Busy yourself with social plans or work and don’t sit around letting your misery rule you.

Remember, coping with a breakup may be tough, but there’s always a silver lining. Keep your chin up, take a few deep breaths, and get up off that couch. Your life must go on.

Go out, meet your friends, or go to the movies by yourself. A change of scenery is just what you need right now. Have faith in yourself, you’re an amazing person and you will be happy again. That’s a promise.
