You don't think you can be happy, but you really can.
People are remarkably poor judges of how negative events will effect them down the line (affective forecasting) -- consistently over-emphasizing the impact and duration of the negative events.

Yes, you can be happy! The thing to remember is this person is only on your mind in the present. You had a life before this person came along and you can have a life after!
This is a thing I find common with people. They date someone, the relationship ends and they are hurting and they think they can never be happy again without that person on their life. But they can. That person only matters in the present and that's it. You have so many people who probably love you and give value to your life. So why is one person the only one that matters?
I know it's hard when people are in the midst of a break up. I get that. But there is a life beyond the pain. You will be happy again :)
