Lessons I’ve Learned From My Past Relationship

It’s funny that I’m writing this, and you probably will laugh about it and say, “Oh, she isn’t over with him yet. It’s been a year, move on girl!” Actually I’m over with it. This will be just few realizations I had over the year.

Every people we come across and even who left a remarkable note in our life will always leave a life lesson — either you’ll keep it your entire life and learn from it. Relationships are tough, and I’m sure breakups will make you a stronger person. With every tear you shed and smile you had, it will always teach us a lesson.

I’ve been in a relationship before and after a year of the break up, here I am – much focused on work, family and myself. Other than that, that breakup taught me few life and love lessons and reason why I’m writing this post is  to share them to you.

LDR REQUIRES TWO PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER

I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a year, that’s why it explains why I still have Long Distance category on my blog and I have a soft spot for LDR couples. Anyways, I realized that being in a long distance requires both couple to act on the problem together, whether good or bad. It’s about two people working things together and facing problems together. And one thing about LDR is constant communication, talk when you hate something and talk when you’re angry. Communicate.

IT’S OKAY TO CRY

One thing I learned about my past relationship, is that sometimes crying can ease the pain we feel in the heart. Cry in the shower, cry yourself to sleep or cry at random times — though that sometimes it’s not healthy. Crying only meant that you’re strong and can do things you can and can’t happen to do.

DON’T MAKE DECISIONS WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY

Don’t ever make one. It’s either that you’re just really angry at your partner that is why you made the decision, just make sure you won’t do it because you’re just angry. I know, because one time I did that and regret it the next day.

IT’S OKAY TO LET GO

Sometimes all we think is, “Oh, I wanna marry him”, and all that perception will be on your mind (or it’s just me, don’t judge) and thought that you aren’t going to be okay when they’ll leave you. Trust me, you will be okay. Letting go is not always a good thing, but it will always be the best thing to save your heart with all heartaches.
