45 Deep Healing Quotes For Your Broken Heart and Soul

Last Updated on 3 months by Iva Ursano

How many of you just had your heart broken or you are still hurting from your last heartbreak months or years ago? Let’s face it, heartbreak sucks. I want to share some beautiful deep healing quotes for your broken heart.

I know whenever I am going through a really hard time I automatically go look for inspirational healing quotes to help boost my self-esteem and build confidence again.

These self-healing quotes all mean something to me and truly uplift me. I’m one of those people who will stop and take in every word and feel it deep in my soul.

You should do that too when you are reading these messages. When you think it, believe it and feel it, you’ll heal faster. The power of the mind is incredible and can help you heal.

It’s only a matter of time before you are healed and you will be better than ever! And don’t forget that we all heal in our own way in our own time.

The place of true healing is a fierce place. It’s a giant place. It’s a place of monstrous beauty and endless dark and glimmering light. ~ Cheryl Strayed

The first step in healing is recognizing that something is broken and needs fixing. Now that sounds like a no brainer, but it’s not.

Before we get into the quotes I just want to touch up the fact that some people need more help than just quotes to heal. There are so many different healing methodologies like:

  • self-help seminars
  • meditation
  • Reiki
  • energy clearing
  • online therapy
  • and more

You don’t have to go through your healing journey alone. As a matter of fact, I hope you don’t!! If you need help, do some research and find it. It’s there for you.

The form you have selected does not exist.

Inspirational Healing Quotes for a Broken Heart

Whether you are going through heartbreak, just lost your job, had a big fight with your best friend, or whatever, all these quotes have a deep and special meaning and I know they will resonate with you one way or another.

If you take the time to read them instead of just glossing over them and continuing to scroll, you too will feel the meaning and it will uplift you in ways you never thought possible.

Many of these quotes are by famous people who have been through a really hard time, some were just written in the wind. Whatever the case, just enjoy these, soak them in and heal that beautiful broken heart and soul of yours.

Remember healing of the heart takes time and patience. Be gentle with yourself. It’s important to take time and do things to help you in your healing journey.

I can never compare my own healing journey with someone else’s. Part of the healing process is compassion, not comparison.

Meditation can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger; and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity of healing do the work. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

10 Deep Healing Quotes For Moving On

We all know that moving on is slow, messy, painful and exhausting. It seems to take forever too! These next quotes will help you let go and move on with grace and love.

If it hurts too much to hold on then it’s time to let go.

Some people can stay in your heart but they don’t have to stay in your life, and that’s ok.

Sometimes, the things we hold on the tightest to, are the things we need to let go of

When the wrong people leave your life, the right things start to happen.

Never run back to the person you needed to run away from.

The best feeling ever is realizing you aren’t sad anymore over something you were sure you’d never get over.

It’s not holding on that makes you strong. It’s letting go.

You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep reading the last one.

The one with self-knowledge is the one who can move forward ~ Maxime Lagacé

The only regret I’ve ever had when walking away from someone is that I didn’t do it sooner. ~A. Bertoli

10 Spiritual Deep Healing Quotes

In the last 10 years I’ve become a very spiritual person (and I’ve also gotten a lot closer to God) so I often read and write spiritual deep healing quotes. I hope you like these ones.

The wound is the place where the light enters you. ~ Rumi

You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds… Claim and consciously use your power. ~Louise Hay

Healing is a different type of pain. It’s the pain of becoming aware of the power of one’s strength and weakness, of one’s capacity to love or do damage to oneself and to others, and of how the most challenging person to control in life is ultimately yourself.
~ Caroline Myss

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become. ~Carl Jung

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives ~Akshay Dubey

I let go of my past and heal my pain from within the heart center. ~ Phoebe Garnsworthy

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.”
~ Kahlil Gibran

It’s when we start working together that the real healing takes place…it’s when we start spilling our sweat and not our blood. ~ David Hume

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world. ~ Marianne Williamson

Wounding and healing are not opposites. They’re part of the same thing. It is our wounds that enable us to be compassionate with the wounds of others. It is our limitations that make us kind to the limitations of other people. ~ Rachel Naomi Remen


Loving yourself is so important

I get that we all want to love and be loved but what we forget is that it is so important to love yourself first. It’s not easy to have and maintain self love.

We are the result of our upbringing and many toxic relationships. We have always settled for what we know because, well, that’s all we know. But when you learn to love yourself on a deeper level…well, lemme tell ya what happens.

  • you have more respect for yourself
  • you understand the meaning of boundaries
  • you don’t put up with any crap from anyone, and
  • you attract the right kind of people into your life

Sounds good to me! You will just vibrate on higher levels of every area of your life! Self love is the greatest healing energy and when you get there, you’ll know it. You’ll feel it. You’ll embrace and love it!

It’ll blow your mind.

Going through the 7 stages of grief for our healing

Whether you just broke up, lost your job, family member, or whatever, a piece of us dies as well. You have to understand and appreciate that grieving is so necessary. There are 7 stages of grief and you must feel and honor all of them.

Here are the 7 stages and see where you are on this list and which stages you may have missed by either ignoring them or resisting them:


Have you gone through any or all of these yet? If not, then you’re not done grieving. There is no time limit on grieving either. So many people say “oh it’s been 5 months already get over it”

That’s easier said than done. We all heal at different rates and paces. Don’t let anyone pressure you into believing you should ‘be over it’ by now. You will heal and be healed in due time.

But with that said, you must proactively be working on healing as well. Don’t sit in sorrow and /or grief for too long otherwise it will consume you and it will be harder to heal once you’re trapped so tightly.

I just want to add 5 more quotes for you but this time on grief. Grief can be crippling but if you go through the stages and work on healing yourself, you can get through it.

5 Healing Quotes on Grief

“So when tomorrow starts without me don’t think we’re far apart. For every time you think of me I’m right here in your heart”
“Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed and very dear”
“I know you feel broken, so I won’t tell you to have a wonderful day. Instead I whisper these words to you ‘just hold on’. As the darkest days of grief start to get less, the sun will rise again for you”
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
“Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.” ~Rumi

I truly hope these healing quotes help you

Every time I go through a really bad spell in my life, I gravitate towards inspirational quotes because they truly do heal me. I know it sounds weird and I say this all the time but quotes are the greatest healing therapy for me.

I hope the ones I have shared here with you will help you on your path to heal your emotional pain. Remember the power of our minds truly has the capacity to heal.

Healing requires from us to stop struggling, but to enjoy life more and endure it less. ~ Darina Stoyanova

And I will leave you with this last powerful quote

Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.
