I've seen many people go through long drawn out seasons of doubt, depression, anger, low self-esteem and loneliness due to the "breakup" of a relationship. Personally I've gone through those same issues and I was given little to no good advice. Many times the advice given is to "just forget" that person. The impression is that you get someone in your life to replace them. After my experiences, I definitely don't think like that. I believe when relationships fall apart you should do a little soul-searching. I don't think you should try to take your mind off of the broken place you are in emotionally and try to find another relationship to get into. That mindset only perpetuates pain. Nothing is gained and so much is lost.
