“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate.” – Carrie Bradshaw
Maybe we need to be broken into billions of pieces first so as to become whole. Maybe we need to hit rock bottom before we finally succeed in life.
Perhaps we need to experience sheer sadness and despair before we learn what true happiness and inner fulfillment and peace really feel like.
Maybe we need to know how the bitter and sour taste of love feels like before we learn what true, pure, deep, unconditional love means.
Perhaps we need our heart to be broken into countless tiny pieces before we realize how we love and want to be loved.
Undoubtedly, a love that’s painful is the worst kind of love and breakup. It’s the kind of love you were willing to risk everything for only to find out it wasn’t meant for you to get it. It’s the kind of love you thought it would last forever, but it didn’t.
The truth is – when it comes to love, we all make mistakes. It’s unavoidable.
The problem is when we make a mistake, i.e. choose the wrong partner or get our heart broken, we tend to blame ourselves for it. We tend to wallow in despair and self-pity.
But, what if I tell you there’s no such thing as a mistake? What if I tell you that every mistake you make, no matter how big or small, or how serious or simple, it’s good for you?
Because no matter how hard it is for us to understand and accept this, but it’s our mistakes and heartbreaks that help us grow. It is these difficult, painful times of our life that help us become smarter and stronger.
You can’t gain wisdom or strength or resilience in good times. In times when you’re happy, careless, and enjoying life.
Instead, it is when you’re left alone with your pain, worries, and regrets that you can achieve a real transformation of yourself.
That’s why every failed relationship, every heartbreak, and every lost hope is not a mistake. It never has been. Instead, it was something you needed to learn who you really are. You needed it to be able to reach the deepest parts of your soul and connect with your self.
You’ve needed every failed relationship and every wrong love so as to move forward to the true love of your life.
Therefore, there’s no point in regretting your past relationships or wishing they had ended up differently from the way they did.
They ended the way they were meant to end. They ended the way they did so as to shake you down to our core and challenge your beliefs about love. They ended the way they did so as to enable you to find the love of your life.
