DO follow in Leighton Meester’s footsteps and believe that everything happens for a reason, even the worst breakup of your life!

When our relationships fail, we have a tendency to shut down and sometimes even blame ourselves for the split. Leighton Meester doesn’t seem to have that problem. In fact, the Gossip Girl starlet has the healthiest take on love gone wrong that I’ve heard for ages. She believes that every romantic experience you have — be it bad or good — is worthwhile, as long as you learn about yourself, life and love in the process. Kudos to her!

“I think love changes you over time, and whether you have good or bad experiences, you always grow and learn from it,” the 24-year-old actress says in the February issue of Seventeen magazine. She adds of her breakup with former GG co-star Sebastian Stan, “I’ve only had one experience where it was really hard and I was really sad when it ended, but that’s what taught me a lot about myself and love and life – and that’s good.”

We often tend to tell ourselves that we shouldn’t have fallen for a particular guy because he hurt us in the long run, but why should we place blame? Everything in life is an experience — and if we don’t make mistakes along the way, how are we ever going to grow or get to the stage where we finally find the love we deserve?

Don’t lament the things you did wrong, or beat yourself up for the errors you may have made. Relationships are a two-way street, and if things don’t work out — whether it be on your end or his — it simply wasn’t meant to be. Although you may have thought you found the perfect guy in your ex, believe me… you WILL love again.

Just don’t make the same mistakes twice!
