That must sound silly, although some of you who owe their awesomeness to a lost love will probably agree. Here are my reasons why heartbreaks are good for you.

  • You used to waste so much time talking about nothing…after the breakup, you have so much time that you could write a book, compose that song, go out with those friends, attend the reunion…there’s so much you didn’t have time for while you were in a relationship. Go do that stuff…be yourself once again!
  • You were always wondering what the other person is doing, sending them textual love to remind them you are thinking of them and all the shit that lovers do. Now, no one expects you to say ‘baby, I am missing you’ etc 10 times in a day! Isn’t that a wonderful feeling – no expectations! You have your freedom back!
  • You used to drive listening to romantic numbers and driving followed the pace of the song…you would think about your beloved with every single word of the lyrics. Now, the music follows your pace while you drive at least 15mph higher than you used to. The drive is awesome and you are saving time! Here, I would really say the drive is perhaps even orgasmic 😉
  • You had to come up with new and unique ways to say I love you because you didn’t want to sound cheesy or boring. That was so exhausting! Now there is no overwhelming sense of panic when you don’t have anything new to say…who cares? So chat away with friends, colleagues and use the old boring words!
  • Then, there were the nicknames! OMG those stupid ways you called each-other ‘jaana’, honey, baby…etc which by the way are basically the same thing meaning sweetheart. You wondered if you were sounding as pathetic as the lovers that you heard a few days back, calling each other the lovey dovey names. Yes, you did! It was ridiculous and it’s pretty abnormal! Finally, you can be normal again.
  • You could not let your phone out of your sight, even when you went to the bathroom (rolling eyes so hard).  And you had to keep it charged all the time! Finally, you are not tied to your phone 24X7…you can cut the chord…be free!
  • Heartbreak/breakups are really wonderful for your health too. Once that person is out of your life with whom you were so smitten that you has stopped exercising, you can start refocusing on yourself. Start hitting the gym again, start making healthier food choices. Be healthy and your hotter self again!

So you see, my friend, heartbreak is not as bad as it seems at first. You can always turn around your emotions and use it for becoming fabulous and investing some of that love into yourself too. After all, if you don’t love yourself, then who else will?
