I’ve been feeling down in the dumps lately and I’ve been reading a lot of self motivation quotes. Is there any advice you can give me?

I just got out of a long relationship with my boyfriend and I’ve been feeling really hard to cope. My personal motivation is at an all-time low and I really need self motivation tips from books and other people. I don’t have to ask myself why is self motivation important because I’ve always considered myself to be a strong person but these times have just been extra challenging for me. I could really use a lot of self motivation quotes and encouraging words right now.

I do feel the pain of getting over a breakup from a long-term relationship, because hey, haven’t we all experienced heartbreak in one way or another?? That being said, you’re right in that quotes on self motivation can really be helpful in these trying times. Have you already read books? Those were very helpful to me during the times when I was going through some rough times as well and needed some encouragement and inspirational books to help me tide through those rough days. Books like these can make you remember that you are not alone and that someone somewhere out there is also going through the same thing and have lived to tell the tale.

I don’t know if this is your first breakup, but if this isn’t, another self motivation tip you can tell yourself on days when you really find it hard to get up is to remember how you powered through your last heartbreak. What were the things you did? What were the things that help you become more personally motivated and get you out of a rut back then? Sometimes you’ll find that the self motivation quote you need all this time has been inside you all along just waiting to get out.

Self motivation is so important because not only does it affect you, it also affects your interaction with all the people around you. I also recommend reading some articles on Her site has a lot of self-help articles and other resources together with exercises that can perhaps improve your general outlook in look at this time when it feels very bleak to you personally.

I know it’s hard to see the joy in life on some days, and heartbreak is indeed a great equalizer because no matter who you are in life, you feel the same pain as everybody else when you’re heartbroken. Know that this is but a normal phase in life that comes in cycles. It may be tempting to get yourself too distracted but sometimes this can lead to denial which in itself is also destructive because it prevents you from truly moving on fully. Acknowledge your feelings but also don’t be too hard on yourself. Take it one step and one day at a time and pretty soon you’ll find yourself feeling better in no time.

Five years is quite a long time, this shows you were really committed to the relationship. It’s hard to imagine the great pain it has caused you. Keep reading those self motivation quotes every day. Just keep in mind that pain is temporary, it does not last forever. Refuse to be chained to the thorns of the past. That heartbreak is not what defines you. You are not the only one going through this; whoever has lived and loved has gone through this feeling, this is normal and tomorrow it will be better. You are on the right track to be healed; it is healthy to embrace personal motivation rather than allowing those poisonous memories to ruin your mind.

Sometimes personal motivation is the last thing you think of when you’re already going through some very hard times like a breakup. Although it feels like it, know that a breakup is not the end of the world. In spite of this, it’s good to know that you know this and want help in motivating yourself when you’re in a rut.

More than all the motivational quotes you’re reading right now, you should also keep moving. You always heard it say that exercise increases endorphin levels, which in turn gives you so-called happy hormones and elevates your mood. You don’t have to go all out, like you can even start by doing just once a week and move to a couple to three times per day when you’re feeling better and getting the hang of it. Balance your mental, emotional and physical well-being as these three are very much interrelated with each other.
