Ending a relationship is never easy, and it makes you feel heartbroken, disorienting, and sad. At times, you may even feel empty and cannot put your feelings into words. If you are looking for quotes that can relate to the end of a relationship, this post is for you.

Oftentimes, relationships come to end without closure or a proper goodbye. It could be a gradual drifting-apart, or an ugly divorce, but no matter the scenario, coming to terms with your emotions and healing from the separation can be challenging. Many of us would rather look to the internet for understanding than our own peers who we might feel courageous enough confiding in.

Check out our list for those end of relationship quotes that resonate with your state of mind and offer some solace to your aching heart.

How Do You Know It’s The End Of A Relationship?

When you are committed to your partner, life feels beautiful. However, if you have started feeling like you would be better off alone, it’s time to end the relationship. A relationship could end due to various reasons – fading of love, cheating, abuse, etc. This does not make the breakup process easy though! As appealing as another person’s single life freedom might appear, navigating being single yourself after a long time of attachment can be disorienting. Ending a long, loving relationship is never easy. It makes you feel empty, heartbroken, and in intense pain at times. But, it is the best thing you can do if being together does not bring you peace and happiness anymore. For your own growth and recovery from the separation, indulge in a lot of self-love and self-care. And if you need some kind words of encouragement, we have a little something for you.

Love and heartbreak have been around since time immemorial, and many literary greats and prominent personalities have waxed poetic about it. Check out what wisdom they had to impart about the end of a relationship below.

If you are not happy (your needs aren’t met) in your relationship, are facing violence in any form, or are not OK with your partner’s behavior, call it quits in the relationship.

Why is silence so powerful after a breakup?

Cutting off all forms of communication with your ex frees you from unhealthy attachments, and gives you a strong and affirmative sign that you can live without them.

Key Takeaways

  • Cheating, abuse, or love fading over time can cause one or both partners to end the relationship.
  • Ending a relationship can leave you with pain, sadness, and heartbreak. Sometimes, it may not always end in anger or regret and may serve as a life lesson.
  • Taking your time to accept the pain, healing from it, and moving on can help you set yourself up for happiness in the future.
