Young romantic love is one of the most beautiful phases in our lives.Some of the factors that build the foundation for a strong and enriching relationship are:

  • Communication
  • Understanding
  • Time
  • Equal amount of effort
  • Compatibility
  • Trust
  • Genuineness

At some point of time there might be stresses and pressures that might test the relationship and could lead to irreconcilable conflicts and end up breaking a relationship and in the process two hearts. These factors include:
  • Communication gap
  • Lack of quality time
  • Inability to balance studies/ career and relationship
  • Trust issues
  • Ego clashes
  • Insecurities
  • Falling out of love
  • Growing apart
  • Infidelity
  • Long distance
  • Parental Pressure
  • Differences in Priorities
  • Different roles and responsibilities
  • Misunderstandings
  • Assumptions
  • Stressful phases
  • Interference from friends/ family

These factors might cause hindrance in this magical time with arguments, fights and in unfortunate cases even painful breakups. Different individuals recover from such distressing and disheartening experiences at different periods of time. Such distressing experiences could lead to issues like:feelings of loneliness, emptiness, self-blame, guilt, depression, painful recollection of the memories of the time spent together.

In such times, it is very important to know that all those who have been with us in the journey of life might not remain with us till the finish line. It is also not realistic to expect that after a certain amount of time has passed, one will feel completely fine. It's a process. Through such experiences we can gain an insight into what we want from a romantic relationship and what and why did it not work out for us.
  • Time heals all- understand that it takes time to accept the void felt by the lack of presence of that person and heal
  • Use this time to invest in ourselves to pursue our dreams and passions
  • Indulge in activities that we derive happiness from
  • Surround ourselves with friends and family from whom we can draw emotional support and strength.
