“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through,
How you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
– Haruki Murakami

How To Get Over Your Ex After A Terrible Breakup
No matter, how terrible or broken your relationship is, but a breakup is always painful. The worst part is explaining the pain you feel to others because it is hard to make them understand it in words. You can explain a disease but unfortunately, there are no appropriate words in any dictionary to explain a heart break. The pain is inevitable and a part of you dies, when a relationship breaks. Even though it seems impossible now, but you can get over him.

  1. I loved reading it Shainee since it was much needed. I would say the most important thing is to be good to others, no matter how wrong things get in your life. Being mean and insensitive to others is not the solution. Just be happy with what life gives you and move on. Taking a vacation is never a bad idea! 🙂

    1. Agree with you. I also believe that you can appreciate day only when you’ve seen long dark nights. Hope things get better for you….sending lots of love and hug 🙂
