I read through my very, very long list of quotes and these are my favorites about getting over a breakup: 1.“If you were happy with the wrong one, just think how happy you will be when the right one comes along.” Oh boy can I relate to this one!The funny thing is that we usually weren’t happy in the failed relationship.What we hang onto is the idea that there was so much to be happy with him.If nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours." -Kally, Age 9 "It's never okay to kiss a boy.
I always found solace in reading a short line that perfectly encapsulated what I was going through and gave me a shot of wisdom in addition to making me feel a little less alone.You got to be a fool to get married." -Freddie, age 6 "They were at a dance party at a friend's house.Then they went for a drive, but their car broke down...Even if he didn’t treat you well, even if you were miserable most of the time, even if he couldn’t give you what you need and want, you hang on thinking maybe things will magically get better. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift”- Mary Oliver.It is only when you find that real love that you’ll truly understand what it means to be happy in a relationship and then you’ll wonder how you ever could have mistaken your last relationship for being a “happy” one. The pain you feel when you’re fresh out of a breakup can feel like cruel and unusual punishment.
