Still reeling over the fact that he cheated on you or that he called it quits? Not certain how you ended up giving up on your relationship? You may feel really awful now, but believe us when we say that it's going to get better.

In fact, according to researchers Ty Tashiro and Patricia Frazier, people who go through heart-crushing breakups usually end up stronger and happier than they were prior to the split. In their study published in the Journal of Personal Relationships, Tashiro and Frazier found that these people manifested at least five positive changes in their life after cutting their losses. These people either became more confident or more independent, while others either became closer to their friends and families. In this context, it's true: What doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.


However, it's not just your heart that endures. According to Elite Daily, previous research has shown that your brain has actually evolved to help you deal with losing loved ones and depressing situations. You just need to find the balance between your brain and your heart.
