If you have ever experienced breakups, it could either have been the saddest day of that year or the moment you felt the most free. Here are some moving on quotes for guys that aptly summarize these feelings of turmoil….
While some people are lucky and some are luckier, it’s a matter of perception when it comes to deciding if you truly have found the one you love. Maybe-maybe not, but who are we to decide if they were the ones we should have spent the rest of our lives with?
Think about it, it’s not like either of you are commodities that come with price tags. Since no one owns anyone, we all just hope to live with someone who let us be ourselves. But the problem crops up when they don’t let you. When rules and guidelines are made, that make you feel like it’s not love but a baseball match and you are the ball being bombarded with the bat. So you let go or make the other let you go, either way the relationship ends. Good riddance!
However, some men, simply find themselves at the shorter end of the stick, when things fall apart, and they have no control over the situation. I may so dare to say, that today people are being used, while things are being loved instead. It’s a popular saying, that ‘He just wasn’t good enough!’, really? Which makes most men think, is there a scale from 1-10 of Goodness and Mediocrity? And what about those men, who have always given their everything into the relationship and yet failed?
Therefore, who was not good enough for who? So many questions and not enough answers. Well here are some quotes for all the men out there, to help them get over their breakups, so that they can find someone new, someone better and start over.
