When you don't know how to get over someone you love, turning to inspirational quotes can help you find strength and hope, so here are the.

Breakups suck, there's no pretending otherwise. But after you've cried so much you've become genuinely dehydrated, and eaten enough pizza.
While many of us have different opinions on how to get over a breakup, and we all experience heartbreak differently, one thing is for sure – breakups are never nice or easy.
Sometimes people leave us, sometimes we are the ones to leave. Either way, what we all need to focus on after a separation is moving on. But how do we do that, especially when the cut is fresh?
Unfortunately, there is no recipe to do so. Each individual reacts and feels on different levels of intensity. What I can tell you is that family, friends and all those little things you love to do in your spare time can help you heal faster, so let them.
Know that it is perfectly normal to miss someone after a breakup and it’s okay to cry, scream and let it all out. The secret is to not make a habit out of it, and bring yourself even more misery. Make room for better things, because better things are yet to come. Don’t ever doubt that!
