117 Relatable Quotes To Lift Up Your Spirit Post Breakup


Love is never lost. The love that you have shared will always find a way to return back to you. That’s the story of this universe we live in. It’s true that breakups aren’t pretty but they also don’t define the endings. Endings are defined by how you take all the mixed emotions that are coming at you right now. You are free to take some time for all the goodbyes and let it out of your system and you are also free to catch the ‘new beginnings’ wagon right away. In whichever way you take it, know that it’s just a phase and it shall pass. The warm and comfortable days will come back again as seasons do but on the days you feel the discomfort and chills of reality, some relatable words make good reads.
