For some time now, I have been concerned about the way people handle break-ups. They either attempt to kill themselves or kill themselves. Some even go as far as stalking their ex-partners or making their lives a living hell!

I have only just 2 words for you, “Move on!! ”

I don’t understand how and why someone, especially women will attempt to take their own life!In case you don’t know this, it’s either you have a spiritual problem or a psychiatric one.

I need to emphasise at this point that there is no relationship worth dying for except the one you have with God.

What’s the point inviting God into your relationship if you won’t allow Him to save you from a bad situation. If you think God loves you and has your back, then He’s not going to sit back and watch you lose yourself in a relationship that won’t end well. So whether the relationship has been on for 2 years or 50 years, God will still save you from it. But if you insist on going back and staying in a bad relationship, then be ready to bear the consequences.

People who do not handle break-ups well, are people who have either played ‘God’ in that relationship or they have idolised their partner.

It is better to walk a way from a 10 year old relationship than staying a life time of pain in marriage!… I tell you. Even if you decide to walk away from the marriage, you have things to consider first, especially if children are involved.

Finally, you really need to let go off an already sour relationship. If something or someone is truly meant for you, he or she or it will surely come back to you without fuss or drama. If a partner decides to stay with you because you plan to either harm him or yourself, then you are indirectly forcing the person… And that is not true love.

So please get a grip of yourself after your break-up. Use that free time to better your relationship with you and God. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll find that you failed to see. Don’t be fast to rush into another relationship, that’s just another disaster waiting to happen.

Remember, every disappointment usually turns out to be a blessing at the end of the day.
