Ending a relationship is heartbreaking. Whether it's a mutual decision or one-sided, navigating life without your partner, especially if you've been together for years, can be very difficult. You will most likely find yourself thinking of him, wishing things could be different, wondering if you made the right decision or hoping that he will call. But the truth is, there is a reason your relationship ended. Perhaps you were no longer compatible or maybe you brought out the worst in each other. Whatever the reason, just know that your relationship served a purpose. Just because the romance ended does not mean your life has to. You can learn from this experience and you can let go.
