A break up can feel like the most disastrous event in life. When you break up with someone special, all those wonderful times together become a memory. A break up tells you that the relationship was not meant to be. You invest so much time and effort in making a relationship grow. Then a break up can be very painful. Being in love is wonderful, yet to love someone deeply is to risk the pain of a broken heart.
While a break up seems like the end of the world, looking at it in a positive way can help us grow.
