Yes, breakups take a toll on one’s emotional and physical health. But with time, you will realize how much the whole experience has changed you. For good.
1. You no longer depend upon anyone for being happy
A breakup teaches you that true happiness does not come from outside, but rather from within. Expecting someone else to make you happy leads to unrealistic expectations from others, which only ruin the foundations of a relationship with time.
2. You become more empathetic
You’ve been through hell, and survived. You know the dreadful feeling of giving your heart to someone else, only to have it broken. But it is at this exact moment that, you decide to never put anyone else through the trauma that you’ve faced.
