Every relationship you enter throughout life, whether that be romantic, business, friendship, etc. is meant for growth. You learn about other people, but more importantly you learn about yourself and grow as a person. I remember when a relationship I had did not work out, whether that be romantic or business, I always thought it was a failure. I failed, and that brought me down. Until one day I realized that all these experiences I was having were meant for my personal and professional growth. For example, let’s say you were dating someone for years, and had big plans for the future.
It came to an end, and you were crushed. You saw yourself with this person or business for years. And now it was over. I’ve been there, it sucks, but life gets much better and when you look back at past relationships you realize you grow a lot from them. This person or persons came into your life for a reason, and you take the lessons you learned and apply them to the next relationship you enter. We all grow as people from the different experiences we have with others throughout our life.
I think as humans we sometimes beat ourselves down when something doesn’t work out. Maybe you messed up, maybe he or she did. But the most important thing is to take the experience, learn from it, and grow. Some relationships aren’t meant to last forever, and that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with you and there’s nothing wrong with the other person. Sometimes there are two great people that are together, but for some reason they just don’t work out. And this could be due to many reasons, such as compatibility issues, stages in life, values, etc. Sometimes two people grow apart. The best relationships happen when two people come together and are complete and grow together as a couple, bettering each other. I never believed in soul mates and when people talk about how the other person completes them. I believe there are many people in this world that you could be in a relationship with, not just one. Now, this is just my opinion, feel free to agree or disagree with me.
But overall, we come across many relationships in our lives, good and bad. Each one is meant to teach us a lesson. It’s your job to take these lessons and carry them with you for the rest of your life.
