Love, joy, happiness, thrill, peace, serenity are those emotions that everyone wants to experience in their life. People will actively strive to find and keep such emotions. On the other hand, emotions such as pain, grief, sadness, hurt and all such negative emotions are ones that are actively avoided.
However, as much as one would like, these emotions cannot be disregarded. They are a part of life. Often these situations override each other in sensitive situations, for example when someone goes through heartbreak. The only thing we can do is to find a healthy way of dealing with them.
So, how exactly does one fix a broken heart? Let’s find out!
Let it out
You absolutely do not want to make the mistake of holding in your emotions.
If you do that, they will keep growing inside you and one day cause more damage than you can deal with. If you feel like crying then just go ahead!
Cry your eyes out! It makes your heart feel lighter. In fact, crying is an amazing form of catharsis.
Talk to someone
Now this someone does not need to be a friend, family or someone you know. It can be a complete stranger!
You can talk to people anonymously on the internet. There is bound to be a community online going through the same thing you are. No one can understand the pain of heartbreak than someone who has experienced it as well.
You can easily find people who will relate and support you. And if you don’t happen to be a people’s person, then that’s fine too. Just write! In times like this, a paper and pen can be your best friend! Lay your thoughts out and get them out of your head. You know like spring cleaning!
Do not sit idle. Busy yourself with something you enjoy or something that you have been meaning to do for a while. Clean and rearrange your room. The more you stay in the same setting, the more memories will pop up in your head.
Try taking up photography. Now this by no means implies that you start professional photography. Just use your phone. Pay attention to all the other beautiful things around you.
You can also indulge in self-care. Treat yourself, go to the spa. If you hate being alone, take your friends along and if you want some alone time, go on a date with yourself. Pay attention to your needs.
Think things through rationally
Often when people go through heartbreak, they feel as if the world has stopped turning. This is another vital mistake. Come to terms with your heartbreak at your own pace. Think about your relationship. Was it as good as it really seemed? Was it a healthy relationship? Am I better off on my own? Ask yourself these questions.
Again, there is no need to rush things. It is rational for you to feel the way you do. However, do not dwell in your emotions for so long that they start to hinder your life and take a toll on you. Sometimes life works in strange ways.
Maybe if someone who you thought was perfect, left you, it might mean that someone even better might be waiting for you.
Put It back together piece by piece
Fixing a broken heart is much easier said than done. The emotional turmoil you experience is the confirmation of how much of yourself you had invested in a relationship. Therefore, do not rush things. Come to terms with the fact that what you had has ended. However, do not force yourself to be okay. That is by no means healthy.
Take your time. Go step by step and try to see the brighter side of things.
Give more attention to yourself and do not reject love. Love is a powerful emotion and a key ingredient for piecing a broken heart back together.
