Let’s be honest here, breakups are some of the hardest things that you can ever go through in life. While dating can already be tough enough, when things don’t go well in a relationship and you have to say goodbye, for better or for worse, it certainly is never easy. Whether you’ve been together for just a couple of weeks or for several years, saying goodbye to someone that you have given your heart and love to can be the worst.

So whether this is your first breakup or if you’ve already been through these already, it can still be tough for both parties involved. Trying to put your feelings into words can be even harder.

There are plenty of songs and quotes out there that will put it all out there.

Here are the best break up quotes for any occasion:
