Re: The Best Way to Overcome a Broken Heart
There are many things to do to help with a broken heart. Some are healthy and others are not. It really depends on the person. You have to allow yourself to hurt in order to allow the healing to begin. To deny your feelings, is to deny who you are. At first it is very hard to deal with a broken heart as I'm sure you know. I think what you need to do is ask yourself if you did everything you could in the relationship to keep it from ending. If the answer is yes, then it was out of your control all along. Acceptance of this is your first step. The heart ache will get better day by day. If you feel like the heart ache is more than you can bear at times, find a healthy distraction. Go hang out with friends. They will help get your mind off of your hurt. Friends are great that way. Take up a hobby, like putting puzzles together. Read some books. Write out your feelings on paper. This is a great way of getting your feelings out there. Find a friend to lean on and tell them your feelings. If they are a good friend, they will listen to you and give you advice from their own life. Or, they could give you some objective ideas that you can't think of right now because of the frame of mind you are in.
I hope some of these ideas help. I know from reading your posts that you have a daughter. Pour yourself into your daughter. Give her all the love you have in your heart. I know with a broken heart it's sometimes hard to project love to others, but your daughter deserves all the love you have in your heart and more. The love that she gives back to you will also help with the healing process. From experience I know that with a broken heart comes the feeling that no one loves you or will ever love you. But, your children will always love you unconditionally, just as you love them. And, I believe there is someone out there that will love you as much as you love them. Although, I don't think now is the time for you to get into another relationship. You need to heal before deciding to do that, in my opinion, or you will carry your hurt into that relationship.
Good luck and hang in there. It will get easier with every passing day.
