Why do breakups hurt?

If you are going through a divorce you may already be aware that it is one of the most difficult things you can do in life, even if the separation was an amicable one. Divorce brings up many emotions and feelings that surface when faced with loss, rejection and uncertainty.

Why do breakups hurt so much, even when the relationship is no longer good?Maybe because it represents the loss, not just of the relationship, but also of shared dreams and commitments.

Romantic relationships begin on a high note of excitement and hope for the future. When these relationships fail, we experience profound disappointment, stress, and grief.

A breakup or divorce launches us into uncharted territory. Everything is disrupted: your routine and responsibilities, your home, your relationships with extended family and friends, and even your identity. A breakup brings uncertainty about the future. What will life be like without your partner? Will you find someone else? Will you end up alone?

These unknowns often seem worse than an unhappy relationship. However, divorce can be an opportunity to rediscover ourselves, what is currently important to us in our lives, and perhaps the chance to look forward to new and greater things not before imagined. Recovering from the emotional blow of divorce, although painful, can in time be a strengthening and rewarding experience, a challenge and a time of exceptional growth. It’s important to know (and to keep reminding yourself) that you can and will move on.

Healing takes time, so be patient with yourself!
