5 Tips For Mending Broken Heart
Breakups can be devastating, but these 5 tips for mending a broken heart will help you deal with the heartache. Throughout the time you are healing, acknowledge the feelings you are having. Examine them and work through them by talking with friends.
- Give up on the idea of being “just friends”. A few years from now when you run into each other you can give friendship a try, but trying to be friends while trying to mend your broken heart is pouring salt on the wound. It will be awkward at best, and once she starts seeing someone else, it will be downright painful. Save yourself the trouble and give her space. You both need it.
Put the focus back on yourself. Get back to the activities and entertainment you enjoyed before you were together. If you gave up poker night with the guys then have them over for a Texas hold'em night to let them know you are back. Relish having control of the remote. Watch seven consecutive kung-fu movies. Drink from the carton. Hit the gym. Your broken heart will be on the mend before you realize it.
Shake things up. Get out of your routine. Instead of going to the usual bars or restaurants you went together, try a new place. Rearrange the furniture in your bedroom to give yourself a new beginning. Remove things around your home that remind you of the relationship. A change of environment can give you a new perspective and that will go a long way toward mending that broken heart.
There are other fish in the sea, so go fishing. At the very least, take a walk along the shore. You might not feel ready for a new relationship, but that doesn't mean you can't still appreciate the female form. Even if your heart is broken, your eyes aren't. Take a look at the beauty around you and imagine a world of possibilities.
- Give it time. It takes time to mend a broken heart, so don't expect it to happen overnight. By keeping busy and focused the time will pass more quickly.
Trying to mend a broken heart is a form of grieving. If the breakup is having a severe impact on your ability to function in your daily life, please contact a mental health professional.
