Mending a Broken Heart

Marlene Alphonse Mar 5, 2019
One of the most traumatic experiences is, breaking up with the person you loved the most. It seems your world has turned upside down and everything seems to go wrong. Now you are nursing a broken heart and you are searching for ways to heal your broken heart. Here are some tips.
When you are in love, everything seems so blissful. You have someone who loves you as dearly as you do, who takes care of you as though you are a tender flower, makes all your dreams come true and who finds out ways to surprise you with whatever you like.
Life seems to be a bed of roses and you feel as though you are in 'fourteenth' heaven. You feel life is perfect and nothing will go wrong and you make up your mind to spend the rest of your life with this special person.
Suddenly out of the blue pops an ugly thorn in the form of a misunderstanding or a quarrel (it may be from your side or his) which leads to an abrupt ending of this beautiful relationship. You decide to break up and part ways (sometimes mutually). Though the decision may be mutual, you end up having a broken heart and painful feelings.
Suddenly, you tend to suffer from depression and keep thinking of the person. You feel a void in your heart and hope for some reconciliation that the person will come back to you and everything will be the same as before. 
You keep wondering how to reconcile and think of ways to build the relationship again. This is one of the most painful phases in life that an individual suffers from. So, here are some 'remedies' for healing your broken heart.

Steps to Mending a Broken Heart

How do you mend a broken heart? Well, it is a very tough question to be answered. There is no relationship that doesn't have its own ups and downs. If your relationship is going through troubling times, just sit and sort out the problems. If it doesn't help and both of you break up, you can end up suffering from the aftereffects of the breakup.
You suddenly find it difficult getting over a break up and tend go into a phase where you are into denial that such a thing has never happened. Your mind wants to block the intense pain it is going through, a feeling of abandonment and betrayal that you are unable to forget.
Remember this is only a passing phase and the gray clouds in your sky will be blown away. With time you will forget your pain and find the strength to forgive the person and mend your broken heart. Here are a few tips for mending a broken heart.
  • Don't be ashamed to cry, if you feel like. Crying is a way to vent out our feelings and emotions that are hidden in our heart and it really heals and is one way for healing a broken heart.
  • Quit thinking about the person whom you have broken up with (We know it's a tough call), since thinking about him won't help you in any way. Avoid visiting places that you both have gone to.
Memories do bring joy to the heart but at such times, it will only aggravate the pain. It's better to stay away from these places. Also get rid of all the mementos, gifts, letters and anything that reminds you of that person.
  • Life is too short to be spent on cribbing about these things. Explore yourself deeply and enjoy whatever little things that you do. Make yourself busy by indulging in some recreational activities. Do what pleases you, who knows it may even help you in getting over a broken heart and you may revert to normalcy.
  • Take the help of your family and friends and talk to them about your soured relationship. Talking to them and seeking their advice will help you in getting in terms with the ordeal that you are going through.
  • Anger, mood swings and frustration tend to increase and you may also find yourself getting annoyed over petty things. Avoid such situations that may make you feel depressed. Visit new places, get to know people and you may find yourself forgetting your hurt.
  • And finally, get a positive outlook about your break up. You can be grateful for all those happy times you've shared together. Remember my friend, life is really very beautiful and full of sweet surprises that must be enjoyed to the fullest.
There is also a famous saying that a person who loves you will never let you cry. Maybe that person didn't deserve you, so it's better to let go and forgive and forget rather than nurse bitter feelings towards him.
