Breakup Advice

By Anonymous

After those amazing relationships end, you have to ask yourself how things will continue. If you broke up with your partner, you must either be unhappy with them, mad at them, tired of them, or some other circumstance. So, if it is you who breaks up with the other, stop and think. As one single person, you don't have any idea what the other might go through. One moment to you is completely different that that of another. For example, you might go on a date and have the time of your life, oblivious to that fact that the one you care for is about to slit their wrists in boredom.
Just and example.
But that is something that you can relate to a breakup. You might think that things are better off without the other. They might be tripping and falling behind you, trying to catch up and get you back. It happens a lot, and these breakups are the worst. I myself went through one. And I've scraped my knees so much over these past to years tripping and falling after her(yes, two years. She's so beautiful I can't stop thinking about her). I've found out the the first and most important thing you can do to stay out of those horrible, bad break ups, is to forget. Easier said then done, right? Well, there is only one way to completely get over such a thing. Overwrite the memories that the two of you shared. Now, people call this a rebound, but isn't every boyfriend/girlfriend after the first a rebound? You must make better memories with this person. Have a greater time, and think about the new things you share rather then all the things you used to share with the other. Take it from me, with time, almost everything is mendable.

Thats how it was with my first bf too.... i still dont know either... I found out he broke up with me when he started going out with someone else. Now that we're both in high school I would love to ask when he thought we broke up and a hundred other stupid questions... but I'm still scared to death to do it. lol

in order for God to use all of you you have to be completely broken

I think if the person guy or girl wants to break up then its their decision. I personally went through an odd break up with my first bf. It was weird cause he assumed that I knew we weren't together anymore. my friend told me that he said i should've known that we weren't together anymore. To this day I still have no clue why he broke up with me.

Just because i fell for you doesn't mean i don't know how to stand back up again.~ME

but how can you ever say you lived and learned if you only ever aim to forget the bad times. let the bad breakups only make you stronger as you search for someone better. going on the rebound might only lead to another devestating breakup but if you learn from the break-up you will only find a better match
