After a breakup friends and families often say that it is time to move on and not dwell in the past but in my opinion, that is easier said than done. So what becomes of the broken-hearted?
I bet most of you reading this have had a similar experience, when after a relationship has ended most of the people you know would give their unsolicited advice that it is time to move on. I never gave such an advice to someone for I know how difficult it is to just get up and start all over again, as if nothing has happened. If you can just pick yourself up just like that and move on right away means just two things for me, first is that there was no love in the first place or second is you are just fooling yourself that you are not hurting.
Can you trust your feelings that the next person you get into a relationship is not just a rebound from moving on so quickly? How about the hurt that you still feel whenever you happen to pass by places that you has special memories?
Some would argue that if you don’t take that chance of falling in love again even if there is that possibility that you would get hurt again in the process, then you would end up spending the rest of your life alone. I am all for that, but not right after a relationship has ended. I believe that one should take time to gather oneself and be sure about one’s feelings before moving on.
