Healing a Broken Heart | 10 Best Things To Do

Healing a broken heart is rarely easy.  Even if you initiated the breakup, you are likely recovering from a broken heart, disappointments and failed plans of the future together.  As with any loss, working through your emotions are important to heal.

Here are stages to recovering from a heartbreak

Denial (“This can’t be the end, I’m sure he will call.”)

Anger (“I hate him.”)

Bargaining (“Maybe if I behaved differently, it would work.”)

Depression (“I never want to love again so I never feel this pain again.”)

Acceptance (“It was. And now, it is over.”)

How to recover from a broken heart

Allow yourself to feel

People universally grieve the loss of their dreams, that could have, would have, should have.  Give yourself time to feel and you will recover better.  Suppressing your feelings will only come back to haunt you later and prolong the grieving process.  And it may lead to depression.

Express how you are feeling

Talk to family and/or close friends who are good listeners.  Even better, get a professional therapist that can give you objective guidance.
