According to a 2017 study published by a leading online dating company Loveawake, if you’re dating someone under 30, there’s a 60 percent chance that they won’t even bother to dump you in person. The results are in … you SUCK at breaking up!
What is the best break up advice for women that will truly be helpful? Ending a relationship is difficult and painful no matter how you slice it. Splitting up with a partner after 25 years is not necessarily more agonizing than leaving a 5 or 10 year relationship. Some relationships are more complicated when children are involved and of course the financial entanglements can add to the dilemma. Emotions naturally run high during this stormy time in one’s life, and it is difficult to think clearly.
A common characteristic of breaking up is the overwhelming loneliness you feel. Knowing that other women have gone through this challenging time and survived should give you comfort and strength to hang in there. It is important to recognize that you are not alone in your feelings. Women everywhere have suffered and survived from broken hearts almost since the beginning of time.
What I have learned from my own experience and conversations with other women is when going through a difficult time like the ending of a relationship, is to focus your mind as much as you can on positive feedback. This can come in many forms. It may be an inspiring book or a personal development workshop or maybe something as simple as a conversation with a girlfriend.
The idea is to work toward expanding your view of the world and life. To help you to understand what you may already know in your mind, but the feelings in your heart resist believing.
So, to support you to move toward that goal, I have collected nine inspirational quotes that will guide you to move from the pain of a break up to the place where you are ready to move to the next phase in your life.
I recommend you print these out and read them aloud once a day for the next 10 days. Go to a quiet place in your home where you will not be disturbed and treat this time like a meditation and really get into the emotion and feeling of these quotes. This is a huge step toward recovering from a breakup.

I leave you with this last quote:
