Sustaining a Heartbreak
You must have heard the phrase "It is better to have loved and
lost, than not to have loved at all", many times. And you must have
felt that it is easier to say that, but the one who is going through
heartbreak knows how it feels like. And, it sure isn't a nice feeling.
Suddenly, you are left alone and everywhere you go, you are reminded of
him/her only. And every time you think about getting over the broken
relationship, something or the other happens that makes you miss him/her
even more. All your efforts of sustaining the painful heartbreak go
awry. And, it still hurts a lot.
In the following lines, we will tell you how to heal a broken heart
- Remember that the world does not consist of just one person. Look
beyond him/her and you will find that there are many people around
you who still love you and care for you. And that includes your
parents, your siblings, your friends, etc.
- Seeing the glass as half full or half empty depends upon us only.
While looking back at your relationship, remember how much happiness
it gave you, rather than thinking about how many times you were
hurt. Appreciate how it has made you a better person than you were
- Don't run away from things. The more we run away from something,
the more it comes back to us. Accept that even though your
relationship was very beautiful, it has come to an end. Never avoid
places that remind you of him/her, it will only make you think of
him/her even more.
- Try to engage yourself in some thing that you like doing, like
painting, gardening, playing with your dog, watching television,
etc. It will make you feel good as well as keep your mind occupied.
- Don't run away from people. Go to parties, make new friends and
hang out. Try to appreciate what you still have, rather than
mourning over what you don't.
- If you were cheated upon, then remember that he/she is not even
worth your grieving. And if the relationship has ended, then it is
his/her loss and not yours.
