Shortly after her split with Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff, Lena Dunham is starting over on a positive note.

The actress took to Instagram Tuesday (Jan.9) to share an inspirational quote about new beginnings. The blue text against a soft pink background reads, “Starting over is the beautiful moment where you choose to love yourself.”

“Forever love,” she captioned the photo. The couple broke up in December after more than five years of dating.

In an Instagram live earlier in the day, Dunham didn’t address the situation directly, but did mention wearing a ring Antonoff gave her. “I’ll always wear [it] because love is a really cool, eternal powerful, eternal thing. It doesn’t have to be defined the way we, in Western culture, define it — as beginning and ends. Things can be, ‘You’re a drop of water and you reenter the ocean.’”
