When you’re in love, everything seems so good, you start to live the life of your dreams. You forget your pains, worries and tensions. The happiness, sorrows and everything of your lover, becomes your own.

You transform yourself into a completely new being. This feeling is called love.

But when you lose that person due to any reason, then that pain becomes inevitable. The pain is more than just an emotional defeat. No matter what your friends say, the so-called “Heartbreak” is the toughest thing to go through. But, do not forget that everything in life teaches you a lesson; your heartbreak will too. It may or may not teach you as many lessons as it taught me, but it will definitely help you to learn some invaluable lessons.


Here are the ten things my first heartbreak taught me:


You realize that your parents are the only constant in your life.

No matter how badly they scold you or get angry with you; but they are the only one in your life who will be with you through your thick and thins. You may get frustrated with your mother at times because she keeps a check on you. Her never-ending questions may bother you but when you suffer, your parents become your best friends and try to bring you out from the situations.


You Discover fulfillment and importance within yourself and not in others.

When in love, you often put aside your needs and happiness in hopes that making your loved one happy will fulfill your desire to be happy. But when that person is no longer with you, you feel empty. You start finding fulfillment and meaning within yourself.
