“Just because a relationship ends, it doesn’t mean it’s not worth having.” – Sarah Mlynowski
If only those words were true. We have all been on the receiving end of a breakup and to be honest, it s*cks. No breakup is a good breakup and even if we were to find a silver lining in this rather dark, gloomy cloud, it’d be after months (or even years) have whirled by! Dealing with breakup, as Columbus said, is akin to crossing the ocean. You cannot reach a worthy destination if you cannot brave losing sight of the shore. Of course, all that advice sounds easier said than done- but having been there, done that, I can vouch that if you are dealing with breakup blues, the best way forward is to allow yourself to be. Feel whatever it is that you are feeling and feel it until you do not feel so blue anymore. All we need to remember during this difficult time is that letting go may not come easy, but holding on isn’t making it any less difficult!

Of course, a chance encounter with an ex can make the whole thing worse- but hey, if you only need help with how not to lose face, dealing with breakup (that way) was never as easy. Here’s how you can win it, based on your zodiac:

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
I am better off without you!
Say it because it is true. You know it in your heart and you have never had any qualms speaking your heart out- so, there’s no reason today should be any different. Even if the voice comes forth a heart that’s still reeling in the aftermath of wreckage, the echo would simply add more impact!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
It took me some time, but I have found my peace.
Say it because you took a while to cry and then some more, to cry a lot more. But now that you are done, you are done! For good.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
I found someone who knows my worth!
Say it because you mean it. Do not flick your rebound relationship in front of him as a revenge weapon (we both know you can) or hang an eye candy you are dating over his head to induce a guilt-trip and win him back. Blackmails or twisted revenge games aren’t right for matters of the heart, and you know that. Prove it.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
I don’t know how to live my life without you, please come back.
Say it because all you have been doing since the breakup is wish for time to turn back and get back together. You have loved him with all of your heart and soul and you know that if he ever decided to come back, you’d pour even more of you into the relationship.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
I have found my happiness and it doesn’t lie with you.
Say it because you have learnt that your happiness actually lies within you. You no longer feel the need to find your happiness locus in anything external to your own soul and you know that THAT is as good as it gets.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
I am letting go of the pain, day by day.
Say it because you are healing. You no longer scrape your wounds, just to allow the ‘raw’ feeling of love to ooze forth from memories of what’s long gone. You have learnt that it is okay to miss someone, but not want them back and you are making your peace with it.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
I always believed we made better friends.
Say it because you know it’s true. Extend that hand of friendship too, if you will. You never know what you might get back!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
I cannot let go just yet, but it hurts to hold on.
Say it because you can still feel the broken shards of your heart piercing through the skin, waiting to bleed out the pain that you are forcibly holding in, as the last shred of memory.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)-
I am better off without you.
Say it because you know that he held you back and you are doing much better, now that the shackles have come off.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
I still have those days when I can’t stop thinking of us.
Say it because you do. Say it because you think of him/her when a favorite song comes on or when something someone does reminds you of them. Say it because you miss them and say it because you know admitting to it doesn’t mean you are weak.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
I hide it all behind this smile.
Say it (if you want) or simply smile!

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
I wish you were still here.
Say it because you miss everything about him- the way he touched you, the way he said your name, the way his eyes shone when he’d see you or even the way he’d tuck that playful lock behind your ear. Say it because you know you were good together- and that you still could be!
Okay, maybe not everything we said made for a legit comeback but no matter your hail Marys, you know that you are saying things for what they are. And as I pointed out at the outset, allowing yourself to be is the only way to be free!
