Going through a breakup? You hate them! You don’t know how you could ever date them! But the more you say it, the more you realize it isn’t true. You dated them for a reason and at the time it was a good idea for you. You will be forever shaped by your relationships with people, whether past or current. Check out this post about how a breakup helps define who you are as a person. It might give you a whole new perspective on your past and a more optimistic outlook for your future.
I think we all experience some sort of regret after a break up. It just feels like you spent so much of your life dedicated to one person when you could have been doing other things. You could have been traveling, you could have been spending more time with your friends and family, you could be meeting new people, you could have already met someone who you wouldn’t be breaking up with.
The longer the amount of time, the harder it hurts. When my four year relationship at the age of 20 ended, all I could think was how I had just wasted 1/5 of my life on someone I would never see again. All I could think about is all of the things I missed out on the past four years – all of the time wasted.
But your bad relationship did not waste your time.
