She will be grateful missed but her words will live on to inspire the world. 4 Things Maya Angelou Teaches Us About Breakups 1) “You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean much. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.” – Maya Angelou Forgiveness. It’s a tough subject that most seem to skip through when doing self development because they may feel it doesn’t pertain to them. “I understand forgiveness already.” It’s an important aspect of moving on past a relationship. Spending time on forgiveness is all about you… not about your ex. Forgiveness will set you free and help you to feel empowered. It takes strength and effort, but it’s always worth it in the end. 2) “We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” – Maya Angelou A breakup feels like a bit giant defeat. We feel like we’ve been pushed down. Beatin down. We even feel like we’ve been emotionally punched in the gut. Ouch. the defeats of everyday life help us grow. Why wouldn’t a big defeat like a breakup help us grow even more? Bringing determination and your power into your breakup will help you realize that you WILL NOT BE DEFEATED.

End of School Year Breakup: 5 Reasons Why They Aren’t So Bad

The end of the school year has come and gone. Were you one of the unlucky ones dumped at the end of term? If you were then you are now the victim of the age-old ‘end of school breakup’. We’ve all been a victim of that once or twice. It sucks, but the situation isn’t all bad.

Does leaving college mean leaving your college relationship? Does graduating college mean breaking up too? Not everyone breaks up with their boyfriend once they receive their diploma, but not everyone should keep him around either. It all depends on what you want and how your relationship currently stands. Here are some things to consider. 1) Location After school ends, graduates move into a much bigger world. Do you know where you’re going to live after graduation? Do you know where your boyfriend plans to be? Maybe he still has a year of school left before graduation, but you want to move to a distant city. Would you be okay if your relationship was long-distance? Remember that long-distance relationships can be hard to maintain. Instead of seeing your guy in person every day, as you would in school, you would only see him on weekends and over the occasional vacation. Your dates would handled over Skype or by phone. Some people are capable of keeping relationships strong through these challenges–are you one of those people? Be honest with yourself. 2) Personal Goals Everyone has personal goals for themselves, but sometimes these goals change after we graduate. Now is the time to ask yourself if...
