Now that Nikki Bella and John Cena have reconciled less than two months after calling off their wedding, it’s pretty obvious how much their temporary split inspired them to grow individually and in their love for each other. Since the news of their reconciliation broke on Friday, both Bella and Cena have shared inspirational messages on social media that just reinforce how important it is to take time for yourself, figure out what you want and move forward with purpose when you’re entering into any long-lasting endeavor — especially a marriage.
On Saturday, Bella shared a text post on Instagram that read, “Storms don’t last forever.” She didn’t caption the image — and honestly, she didn’t need to. It speaks for itself. When she and Cena announced their split, they released a statement reading in part, “[W]e continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another.”
Over the last few weeks, their love for each other has clearly grown, with Cena even going on Today to make an impassioned plea about his love for Bella and how he’s changed his mind about wanting to be a father and have a family with her — something that, according to Us Weekly, was a deciding factor in the pair calling off their wedding. On the Sunday episode of Total Bellas, we saw their decision documented on camera.
A source told Us that Bella made the decision to call off her wedding to Cena “so she could have more time to make a decision with what she wanted in life. Calling off the wedding was the right decision at the moment and their relationship only grew from it. It didn’t mean that any love was lost, or that they lost any feelings for one another, but they both have realized that they love each other and want to be with one another.”
Being accountable is a great way to face who you are. We often speak of aspiration and quickly point out the faults of others, yet fail to heed our words or be brave enough to be accountable for our own faults.

Cena tweeted his own inspirational message on Friday, the same day his reconciliation with Bella was confirmed. “Being accountable is a great way to face who you are,” he wrote. “We often speak of aspiration and quickly point out the faults of others, yet fail to heed our words or be brave enough to be accountable for our own faults.”
It’s clear that these two are ready to work on their relationship and head into the future together, whatever that may look like. We couldn’t be happier for them — and it’s encouraging to see two people who love each other fighting for that love and fighting for each other while accepting blame and working on themselves too.
