There was a reason for the breakup. And whatever the reason maybe and however it was there was still a reason. It might not be an ideal reason or the same as why others breakup. But its your reason and if you even have one reason as to why u guys should not be together respect that and accept it.

You need to understand that sometimes things aren't meant to work out, and even though you may feel strongly about someone, there are certain things in life that prevent you from being with them. When you can learn to be flexible and let people go when it is not working out, you'll grow as a person and help yourself become that much closer to finding your special one.

Sometimes we may get unlucky in life and it’s important to remember that it does not necessarily mean we have done something wrong or that something is wrong with us. Unfortunately, there are times where this may extend to relationships and we see them severed due to timing. When this happens, it may be important to either keep in touch or find a way to reconcile once the timing feels more appropriate. However, it is important to remember that if you do have a way to communicate later on down the line, you may need time apart to heal and recover from the loss of the relationship first and reminding yourself of it or attempting to rekindle it too early may do more harm than good.
