Breakups. The Worst Thing or The Best Thing?


My breakups were always devastating.


So much time invested. So many hopes, dreams, and plans—vanished with just one, “We need to talk…”


When I love someone, I’m all in.


So when a relationship tanked, it was the worst. The absolute worst.


But then…


Time began to do its thing—providing perspective, helping me acknowledge the relationship’s flaws. Helping me admit we weren’t the right fit and that I was now freed up to meet the right one.


How does the worst thing become the best thing?


It doesn’t.


The worst thing was actually the best thing all along.
