Love is one of the most beautiful things. It comes with so many advantages and makes you feel like you are on top of the world. You get butterflies in your stomach and your heartbeat starts racing when you are in love. Everything seems beautiful, until your story takes a turn and you experience a heartbreak.
How do you feel when you are heartbroken? The opposite happens. Your heartbeat fastens, but it hurts this time. It’s not easy to get over any kind of pain. When someone asks you to squash a habit, no matter what kind of habit it is, it is not easy. So how will you get rid of the habit of sharing everything with a particular person? How will you get rid of the fact that your heartbeat was once in sync with your lover?
It’s difficult, but not impossible. Never think of giving up just because your relationship failed. You have a number of reasons to rise. Here are five ways to overcome the pain of heartbreak.
1) Trust time, trust the process
First and foremost, trust yourself. Have faith in time and in yourself that you will overcome this pain. It is said that based on the way we monitor our thoughts, our brain starts functioning accordingly. Trust that time that will take away your pain and it will heal all your wounds. Don’t lose hope.
2) Forgive, let it go
Nothing will be more peaceful than forgiving the one who has given you immense pain. It seems vague but trust me, it will help you understand your own worth. You will realize how strong you are when you can forgive and let go of something that was your life. But, the fact is now you need to live for yourself.
3) Live for yourself
You need yourself the most when you are going through this painful period. Don’t give your precious time to those thoughts that will give you nothing but heart wrenching pain. Give time to yourself to build new refreshing thoughts. Always remember that you deserve happiness. You deserve to smile, start giving yourself what you deserve. Start living for your own happiness.
4) Cry once, cry for all, no repetition, no recall
If after following all the steps, you still find it hard to cope, then shout out loud, cry out loud. Cry for hours, but cry once. Cry for all the broken pieces of your heart. Cry for all the painful moments, cry but just once. You won’t repeat it. You will let go of everything in the form of tears in one go. Trust me, after that, you will get satisfaction. You will feel relief.
5) Take a fresh breath once again
Move on, take a deep breath and this time this breath is solely for yourself. It belongs to you, it is for you. You will breathe again and this time it is for you. Start engaging in things that put a smile on your face. Start indulging in stuff that refreshes you. Just remember that your life is beautiful. Whatever happens, is for the best and something better is waiting for you. Be positive, everything will fall in its own place.
