Life goes on after a breakup

This doesn't mean

And that's the best lesson of them all. It was very freeing, and is one of the reasons, I think, we had so much fun together I'm sure the fact that he's incredibly laid back didn't hurt, either. If you're not worried about it ending or where it's going, then you're not worried about doing anything that might mess things up, so you're just completely yourself, like I was with him. It just means managing the age-old paradox of staying true to what you want big-picture for your life while still being present in each moment and not attached to the outcome.

Life goes on after a breakup. This is a realization I've been fighting against accepting for years. This is the best thing I learned about myself from this experience, and the way that I really walked away changed.

Not only is that the way for it to grow, but also the only way you can truly get to experience the joy of real connection with another person. When two people are just in different places in their lives with regards to relationships, then it's just the way it is, and there is nothing you can do about it. We become so caught up in the idea of what that relationship could be rather than getting the chance to see if that person or that relationship is something we even want.
