Many times we believe that everything in life is black and white, but as the months and years have started to pass, I have begun to realize that every painful and terrible experience has taught me something useful and positive. This is something especially real when it comes to romantic relationships, because when going through a separation, we almost always forget that in reality, what we have before us is an opportunity to learn something that we could not have learned in any other way.
1. You develop a much deeper sense of empathy for others.
After you’ve gone through a tremendous amount of pain yourself, it’s easier to understand and connect with someone who is suffering. You don’t even have to have gone through the same thing they’re going through in order to understand their pain. But you do understand what it’s like to feel helpless, alone, angry and scared. You’ll become a better friend and person to everyone around you.
2. It helps you to understand who you are when you’re not in a relationship.
It’s easier to categorize yourself when you’re in a relationship. You’re someone’s girlfriend/boyfriend, fiancé, spouse, etc. Soon that becomes the most important, and often only, way to label yourself. But when you’re alone again, you discover that it’s not necessary to label yourself at all. You are an ever-changing person. Constantly learning and growing.
3. You learn who your real friends are.
I have always deemed friendships as one of the most important things in life. I even think that we can go through life without a partner, but not without a friend. During difficult times, the real ones will show up. They will try to make you feel better and even if they don’t know how to, they will just be there for you. And honestly, sometimes that is all we need.
4. You realize you can put up with much more than you had originally thought.
At some point you think the world is going to end for you. There are days you won’t even want to get out bed and you’ll wonder how you’re going to get through it all. But it is not until you force yourself to get out of that bed and push yourself to continue every day, that you will really comprehend how strong you are, mentally, physically and emotionally. And the beauty of it all is that no matter what happens next in your life, you will know, that you can and will get through it.
5. You understand the beauty of being single.
You will discover the deliciousness of making your own schedule and following what called for you rather than what was expected from you. What fell by the wayside during your relationship, are exactly where you left them. Only now you have the time and devotion to give them the attention and energy they deserve.
6. You will find peace with your past.
With time you will realize that everyone comes into you life for a reason. What you’re going through is just a stepping stone on your journey. You have lost, but you have learned. And you will quickly realize that the person you were looking for was right where they were supposed to be: within.
