ako i learned to love myself even more. no one can make you happy but yourself and dont depend your happiness to others. (nag revamp ako ng image and i learned to travel alone.. i can watch movie alone. btw, im going to SG and KL all by myself)
one more: i also learned to look at the track record of the guy. promise! kasi somehow it would reflect what kind of person he is.
That’s what I did. LoL!
Before I couldn’t go out without my ex but now I can even go and watch movies alone. My friends actually were so amazed that I could stand watching movies in Glorieta all by myself. =D
I changed the way I look. And now I could say I am more mature and confident.
It was hell but then I’m grateful because I was able to learn to love myself more as well as my friends and family.
Don’t ever depend your happiness to someone. You are the only one who can make yourself complete.
And just for the record, I agree with you. Guys try to check first the background before hooking up with someone. No matter how kind and great he is at first, and even if you could claim to yourself that you’ve changed him, if he came from a not-so-good “environment”, he’ll always come back to his natural color. (Trust me. I was even blamed by ex because of this and to think he had achieved a lot ever since I helped him changed his ways).
What have you guys learned from breaking up with your exes? And were you able to put those lessons into effect into your next relationship? For example, I told myself after breaking up with my 1st bf that I will never let another person's personality overshadow my own ever again. But it happened again with someone else. Well, in fairness may 4 years na gap naman between the guys. And that's why I was so upset about the break up with No 2 because I thought I knew better. But oh well, I guess 3x a charm? hehe
A lesson will repeat itself until it is learned. =D
