Everyone’s heart has been broken once; everyone has been betrayed at some point in their lives and has lost hope and faith in love… perhaps, more than once. Have these things done that you renounce love? Did you tell to your head and your heart that you simply forget the idea of falling in love again? It is natural. However, this doesn’t change the course of love when it comes to you a second time.
You will have doubts about whether to trust in love again or not. Logic and reason will not help you. You may still blame love because everything went wrong the first time. But don’t blame love, because love it isn’t what “broke you.” It was the person who didn’t know how to love you and who broke you. However, there is always a positive side, whether you like it or not. And this one tells you that, maybe, the second time, Cupid has thrown the right arrow and love will not be as bad as the first time.
These are some reasons why your second love is better than the first because it is the true one.
Second love gives you hope
It shows you the light after you were in the dark for so long. Even if you feel that hope is toxic, the second love will teach you that you can have another chance. It will show you that you deserve the best and not everything is lost. The second love will be the hope that guides you.
You feel stronger after a bad relationship
Anything that you face with force leaves a great impact on your soul. The second love is real because it teaches you to trust in love once again, thanks to its brilliant qualities. It teaches you that you are capable of loving again, more strongly this time. Second love is there to pick up the pieces that your first love left you.

The second love makes more sense
This love is not based on unfounded things like fantasies of childhood, blind love, or lust… many of the things you experienced in your first love.

This is because it comes after you have learned to listen to your instincts and to make mature decisions, not only because you are alone.

It is different
You will know that your second love is real because it is different. It makes you experience new things, things you never thought you would be able to feel again. It will end your emptiness and your sadness, and you will feel different, especially because no one else has made you feel that way before.
This is how you will know it is real. It’s not like anything you’ve experienced before; it’s like walking in the dark and seeing the light suddenly.
