We stay in relationships thinking that they will stay the same forever. It doesn't if it isn't right. This doesn't essentially mean that having such a relationship was a terrible mistake. The fact that it didn't last can help you in sorting out a lot of things. In fact, you should be glad that it failed. Thus, you learned a great deal about yourself. You get to know a lot about you during such times. Most importantly, you learn what you are actually looking for.
You didn't blow your chance of having a steady relationship. You can still settle down. You just realized that it wasn't the right person. Thus failed relationships prove to be eye-openers.
Yes. A relationship carries a lot of emotions. It's hard to let go too. But, you should give utmost importance to your peace of mind. You should know that you are important. Of course, we need to make some compromises in a relationship. But in the run, you should not lose yourself. If in a relationship, you don't get to be yourself, get out of it. There's no point in a relationship if the spark is lost. Never ever cling to it, just because you are afraid of breaking up. Breakups aren't a big deal. I feel that we should not forgive cheating. If he/she cheats, let them go. By doing so, you are proving that your ethics is something that cannot be compromised. You are also proving that you deserve respect and that you are not a toy to play with.
The number of relationships you had does not determine your character. Avoid those people who do that. It's your life. You have the right to choose your partner. It's not an easy task. If a person isn't good for you, it's not your fault. You deserve someone who appreciates your presence. As said in the movie 'Dear Zindagi', you have the right to see what you are comfortable with. It's like choosing the perfect chair to sit. You determine if it’s good for you only by sitting on it. Failed relationships do not make you a failure. They will if you give up and blame yourself.
Failed relationships help you to see what went wrong. This helps you to not repeat your mistakes. Thus, they help in making you a better person. There is someone out there you are right for you. You haven't met him or her yet. Maybe, you have. You have experience in the field and you know how to be in a relationship. You know how to keep a balance. You know how to cherish it. Don't jeep baggage from your earlier relationship. Extract wisdom from it. You will definitely score. Find the real one, who deserves to be with you and enjoy life to the fullest.
