"Letting go of someone dear to you is hard,
but holding on to someone
who doesn't even feel
the same is much harder.
Giving up doesn't mean you are weak!
It only means that
you are strong enough to let go
!" - Anonymous.

A breakup is never easy. Whether you initiated it, or it was the other person or it was a mutual decision, a breakup always hurts! If you have recently seen the end of an important relationship, you must be going through a lot of mixed emotions. A part of you will be angry, a part of you sad and a part of you immensely bitter and revengeful! But as it is said, fostering negativity in any form never benefited anybody. So, instead of feeling down or thinking of ways to get back at your ex, move on in life!

Moving on, however, is easier said than done. This is where music comes to our rescue to help us get over our blues. Art, in any form, whether it is the written word i.e. moving on quotes or music can help in quickening the healing process post a relationship breakup.
