1. ‘I’m letting you go. Cause if we stay together, Will, we’re gonna be miserable. I’m gonna hold you back from all these incredible dreams that you have. And then eventually you’re totally gonna hate me for it.’ –Will and Emily, Definitely, Maybe

2. ‘The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.’ – The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

3. ‘Let yourself go and let yourself obsess over every little detail of the breakup and the relationship. You will need to do this for yourself. You will need to allow your mind to take it all in so that by the time you get back up on your feet, you know how you feel.’ –Lauren Conrad

4. ‘It’s no good. When someone leaves you, apart from missing them, apart from the fact that the whole little world you’ve created together collapses, and that everything you see or do reminds you of them, the worst is the thought that they tried you out and, in the end, the whole sum of parts adds up to you got stamped REJECT by the one you love.’ ―Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary

5. ‘When I was first going through my separation, someone said to me, ‘It will take you half as long as you were in the relationship before you’ll feel better.’ And I wanted to knock them out cold across the table. Because, of course, I was in agony. And the last thing I wanted to think was that I was going to stay that way for a long time. But interestingly enough, it is over four years later–we were together eight year–and I finally feel like, cool. I feel better.’ –Uma Thurman on Ethan Hawke, Redbook

8. ‘When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something. We might realize that this is a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can go either way. We can shut down and feel resentful or we can touch in on that throbbing quality.’ –Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart

9. ‘Sooner or later, we all sit down to a banquet of consequences.’ –Nancy Horan, Under the Wide and Starry Sky

10. ‘The truth of relationship healthiness is that water seeks its own level. If you want to know what is missing in you, what unfinished business you have, what your inner struggles are, you need not look further than your partner. If you listen carefully and look closely, usually your choice of mates will tell you what you need to know about yourself. As you grow and change, your choice of mate continues to reflect what you still need to work on.’―Susan J.

And you hope he’s fine.’ –Taylor Swift, Elle

I did it through hikes and vitamins and therapy and prayer and good friends.’ –Katy Perry
