The Best Thing I’ve Learned from Heartbreak

ART Clare Magno

Regardless of whether the relationship was just casual or something serious, going through a breakup is never easy. While things may seem gloomy and weary, more often than not, there are lessons that come along with a tough breakup. Don't believe us? Read on as former Candy Cuties share with us the best things they learned from heartbreak

Any relationship—whether with a friend, family member, or significant other—requires a handful of maintenance, constant communication, loyalty, and lots of patience. Like everything else in life, if you want it, you have to be willing to work for it. —Andre Endique

Heartbreak has a way of making you realize that there’s so much more to life. When you learn to move on after a breakup, it helps you discover how strong you really are. —Jolo Asinas

Nothing can help you recover better than the company of your best friends. They understand and know you best, so listen to their advice and take in their words of encouragement. Also, moping around isn’t going to get you anywhere! Sure, you can be sad for a day or two, but not for weeks on end. Keep your heart strong, have the will to withstand the sadness and pain, and gather the strength to always move forward.  —Christophe Menguito

Heartbreak shows who you are as a person, where you are in your life, and whether or not you are truly ready for a relationship. It tells you whether you’re mature enough or still have some growing up to do. In any case, heartbreak is always a chance to turn a new leaf and start over. —Mike Yap

I learned that I have to establish a solid foundation with the girl first—not to take things too fast and ruin the friendship, but not too slow that she’d already find someone else. It’s all about timing and effort. I’ve come to realize that if she’s the right girl, she’ll be worth it. —Gerard Lahoz

Rejection is a part of life; everybody goes through it at some point. It blocks the direction you’re not supposed to go in and opens a new and better path for you. —Shereef Villanueva
