How to Heal a Broken Heart

May 21, 2018

Dealing with the loss of a relationship is one of the most difficult and unpleasant things you’ll ever have to do in your life.

It doesn’t matter whether you were with your partner for three months or thirty years, separations leave people feeling extremely hurt and rejected.

The following steps can help you mend your broken heart and help heal your emotional pain:

Accept the Pain

After a break-up, you will almost certainly, go through some pain. It’s important to remember that this pain is natural and is an essential part of the healing process.

Learn to accept it, but do not dwell in it. With time, it will pass. A mistake many broken-hearted people make is to obsess over their pain forever, and not allow themselves to move on.

Change How You See the Breakup

The next step is to try to change your mental picture about the separation. By trying to view the positives of the situation instead of the negatives, you can greatly eliminate your distress and reduce your healing time.

If you are bitter, and negative, and all you can think about is hate, then you are building up unnecessary distress for yourself. Try to appreciate your ex for the relationship, the break-up and their honesty of no longer wanting to pursue the relationship, freeing up your time and emotional energy for someone else.

Spend Quality Time With your Loved Ones

Remember that you have caring family and friends that can be there for you. Think of how you can spend quality time with them and let them help you to enjoy your life again.

Your loved ones can help you, comfort you, and get you out there again to have a good time. Lean on them as you deal with your broken heart.
