Not all of us get closure.
But all of us go through heartbreak. Our hearts are meant to break in this lifetime—many times. We are meant to feel pain, hurt, and disappointment.
But just like suffering is our destiny, so is healing. In fact, one doesn’t exist without the other.
We break, but we become whole again. We worry, but we eventually move on.
Jay Shetty may be one of the few people who eloquently describes our day-to-day problems and offers us feasible solutions. Through his podcasts and videos, he casts a ray of hope upon our hearts and souls.
I’ve been following him for a few years now, and all I can say is that his words are nothing but enlightening and life-changing.
Whether you’re still waiting for closure or going through heartbreak, these quotes from the former monk, Shetty, will mend your heart:
“Don’t worry about rejections. All you need is one person to say yes.”
“Best lesson I have learned in life came from the worst feeling I ever felt in life.”
“Forgiveness and letting go and the ability to rise above the challenges that have been caused by others in our life is such an important ability, because we need to learn to accept apologies that we never received.”
“I believe that you can’t fix yourself by breaking someone else. It’s like what Buddha said: ‘Resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.'”
“So many people are together but not in love. So many people are in love but not together.”
“Your new life will cost you your old one. Remember it will be completely worth it.”
“We need to learn to accept apologies that we never received.”
“Some people love you but don’t tell you. Some people tell you but don’t love you.”
“Love didn’t hurt you. Someone who doesn’t know to love hurt you. Don’t confuse the two.”
“You cannot transform that which you do not accept.”
“Someone may have hurt you by leaving you, but I promise they would have hurt you more if they stayed with you.”
“You broke up. It ended. But you didn’t break. You didn’t end. The part of you that was attached to that relationship did. There is so much more to you.”
“We all make mistakes. We trust the wrong people, we get into toxic relationships, we let people down, but you can change all of that. You can make amends and reset. You are not your last mistake.”
“People that try to hurt you are somehow trying to heal themselves. Recognize that they are in pain when they gave you pain. They caused you hurt because they were experiencing some type of hurt.”
