23 Breakup Quotes To Release Emotion + Move On

Whether you’re the heartbreaker or heartbreaking, ending a relationship is rarely easy.

Even if we love the person, leaving can be the best thing.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t grieve and miss them (or sometimes, the person we thought they were).

One way to take something positive out of the relationship is to consider what lessons you’ve learned (even if the lesson is never to be with someone so terrible again).

Losing someone can also mean gaining something else and moving onto a better life.

There’s many different ways to look at heartbreak. We hope these breakup quotes help give you perspective and validate how you feel ❤️
