Helpful Quotes for a Broken Heart

Breakups hurt, but losing someone who does not respect and appreciate you is actually a gain, not a loss.

Pain makes you STRONGER, tears make you BRAVER, Heartbreak makes you WISER, so thank the past for a better future.

People always think the most painful thing is losing the one you love in life, the truth is, the most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, forgetting that you are special too.

To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God. ~Jocelyn Soriano, Mend my Broken Heart.

Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are. - Rachel Naomi Remen

Forgiving doesn't imply that what someone did to you is okay, it simply means that you're not going to let what they did ruin your happiness.

Don't let the agony, regret or fog of yesterday blind you to the fact that each new day carries with it a plethora of opportunities to move your life into the right direction. ~Steve Maraboli
