How This Quora User Dealt With An Ex’s Marriage Is A Lesson In Moving On From Relationships

Relationships aren’t easy. And while some people say calling it off is a lot easier than holding on and solving problems, it doesn’t always make sense. It isn’t always the right thing for you.

Sometimes there are problems that can’t be solved and sometimes it’s simply the love that seems to have disappeared – for one of them. And then when the two part ways, one of them moves on, while life simply pauses for the other. For the one who still loves, and cares, life only seems to go downhill from that very moment.

Also, seeing your partner move on isn’t something everyone can digest easily. Moreover seeing your partner marry someone else is a shock that only sometimes completely destroys a person.

Akansha Satyarthi, a Quora user recently shared what she felt when she saw her ex-boyfriend getting married to someone else. This 24-year-old girl spoke about all the emotions she felt and how she overcame the sadness.

Indian girl,24 here :
I fell in love when i was 19, first relationship. We were happy together and had this plan to get married some years down the line, long story short ,it didn’t work out. It took me almost 2 year to move on . i lost all my contacts with him.Then, last year i saw his fb post and came to know he got married 2 days back( that day was also my birthday).
This is what i went through for next 1 week:
  • I tried to stay calm for few hours but i couldn’t, i cried full night
  • Next 3 days were worse, apparently it was weekend as well, i didn’t go out at all. I cried and consoled myself full time
  • I remember next monday i locked myself inside office washroom ,couldn’t find peace anywhere else, i just didn’t wanted to see anyone, this went on for few more days.
But then, when i was done shedding tears, suddenly all of it started feeling better.i always believed i had moved on but there was always a little hope that died after his marriage and it died for good.
I saw his pictures and realized how happy they were looking together,not that i was happy for them but somehow i felt i was never required/belonged/desired at that place…i could cry for rest of my life and break loose all the hells and yet he wouldn’t want to come back.
So my dear friend, let your love get married, this is where their part in your story ends. Trust me, loosing the last string of hope sometimes works magically for you, this is when you go and find new hopes .


Yes! Breakups are bad. But sometimes a person leaving from your life is the best thing to happen to you.
