25 Break Up Quotes About Lost Loves And New Beginnings

We can't help who we fall in love with and sometimes relationships just don't work out like we had first hoped and the old break up quote "when one door closes, another door opens" still rings just as true today when it comes to relationship break ups.

So many people feel completely lost after a break up, like life is just never going to be the same anymore, feeling like they'll never fall in love again and can't stop missing their ex-partner.  Other times a breakup is mutual and both parties either remain friends or move on with no hard feelings. Then there's those not so happy break ups that are bitter and neither wants to see each other ever again.

All these break up experiences can be devastating at the time but it's something everyone goes through and must experience sometime in their lives and we've compiled some of the best break up quotes to show this is a universal life experience. Some of the greatest stories and poets in history experienced the pain of breakups which gave us some of the best love and break up quotes of all time.

We have to experience these ups and downs in life and relationships to truly discover ourselves..

How many times have you looked back at an old relationship after a long time apart, where you were the one who didn't want to break up and thought you'll never be able to move on but then as years pass you now wonder why in the world you were even so into that person, were so upset over them leaving you or wondered why you even stayed in the relationship for so long and didn't just leave sooner or make the break?

Sometimes we wake up thankful that we got that chance to start over, some people stay in miserable relationships for years and never get that chance someone who gets dumped or break up gets - that chance to let go and to be happy again! Even if at the time, we didn't feel ready we know now looking back it was right thing for you.

Breaking up also helps us to really value new people who come into your life in time (and they will!), new friends and new partners after you've moved on from"that heartbreaking breakup."  That's because break ups aren't the end but a beginning, a starting line drawn in the sand of your life - a new beginning for YOU.  It's the best chance you've been given to rediscover yourself, who you are and what your needs separate from anybody else, you matter and it's time to find out what make you happy without a partner.

We at Just Promise Rings believe not only in celebrating partnerships with lovers and couples but singles and loving yourself too! Promise rings aren't only for couples so we created a beautiful collection for those ready to make a promise to themselves. It can be just as wonderful to be on your own and explore the world again as single girl or guy as it is to be in a relationship. In fact, this is often how many people discover what they truly want out of life separate from a partner or what they want in their future partners too when they are now focusing on just themselves for once.

Treat yourself and have a reminder of something important to you or as a symbol of a new start for you. Perhaps you're not ready to let go of a lost love yet and this will help you carry them with you until it symbolises something different for you and you're ready to let go or as a symbol to signify your new start and that you're ready to get happy again!
