We all fail in love at some point in our lives. Sometimes failure crushes us and other times it makes us more emotionally intelligent and resilient.

People face heartbreaks because they haven't fully explored themselves. Being unaware of our needs & wants results in falling for the wrong person. So before we fall in love with someone else, it is important to fall in love with ourselves first!

People who don't love themselves enough usually end up in toxic relationships which degrades their emotional, physical and mental health. Acknowledging our self sabotaging behaviors and recognizing red flags in early stages of dating, can save us from many crappy relationships and unnecessary emotional drama.

Failure in love is not the end of the road

Failing in love doesn't mean the end of the world. We fail because there are certain lessons which we need to learn, certain boundaries that we need to set and if we neglect those lessons, with every failure in love those lessons will get bigger and more painful.

It's better to not lose hope with every breakup. Instead, try to see it as an opportunity to dig deeper into your soul and try to understand:

  • What is that pain trying to tell you?
  • In what area of your life you are lacking self love?
  • Where are you seeking validation in your relationships?
  • Where are you not setting healthy boundaries?

Only when we believe that we deserve the best and make space for the right person will they automatically appear without any chase or useless drama.

It can be hard to get up when you have been through a major heartbreak. Talk to a professional expert and navigate this difficult road with empathy and love for free.

Failing in love not just breaks our heart, it hurts our self esteem too. It evokes many kinds of negative emotions which, if not addressed properly, can gradually affect our lives. Don't run from the pain, instead try to express it in creative ways like- writing, dancing, singing etc. Pain often comes with wisdom, which one needs to become aware of.

When our love, needs and expectations are not reciprocated by the partner, it is known as love failure. It can crush our heart into a million pieces and can shake our faith in love. But we should not give up on love and keep on searching for that special person who will choose us everytime no matter what happens.

Failure is a part of life. Without facing failures in different aspects of our life be it a relationship or job, we cannot know the value of success. It teaches us how to be humble and trust the process. No matter how many times we fail, we should learn the lesson and move on from it. Everything you want is on the other side of fear. - Jack Canfield. Success comes when we choose to face our fears instead of running away from them.
