Mending Your Broken Heart

Breaking up is never easy. The end of a relationship means the beginning of a period of mourning and healing. When you are feeling sad or missing your crush it can be quite painful. It’s hard getting used to no longer being together. Life without somebody you still care can be a difficult adjustment. Here are my tips for the early days of a break up to let the healing begin.
Talk out your feelings with close friends. Get everything out so that you won’t hold all your feelings inside. Your friends may get sick of hearing you talk about the situation but you need to let out all your feelings and thoughts.
Cry if you want to. It’s OK to cry over the loss of a relationship. Don’t hold back, let the tears pour out of you. Just do it in a safe and private place. Their purpose is to cleanse you of any pain that you are experiencing.  
Put away the photos!!! Let go of mementos. Put away or give away anything and everything that reminds you of the relationship. “Out of sight, out of mind” or  until you are able to remember the relationship without longing for your ex.
Focus on all the things about your ex that drove you crazy! Think about these things often and replay them in your mind. Over & over, again & again!! Dwell on them. It will make you feel better to remember that your former flame was not perfect and that there are things you won’t really miss.  
Think about the mean, cruel or rude things your ex may have done in your relationship. Or the way he may have ended the relationship. Really give these things play in your memory. Remind yourself that somebody who truly cared for you would not have done such thoughtless things. Tell yourself over & over, again & again that you are better off without him.
Mending a broken heart is not easy but it can be done. Just stick to the game plan outlined above and before you know it you’ll be just fine.
Good luck!
