Healing a broken heart can be a very difficult task. We do not have the ability to snap our fingers and be at peace with losing someone we loved. No matter what the reason is for the relationship’s demise, it is still painful and hard to overcome. During this trying time there are very few people who can help lessen the ache within ourselves. We turn to girlfriends, sisters, parents, and seek guidance wherever we can. The most important thing to do is to find the love within ourselves to move forward. If we love ourselves then we can accomplish anything, even heartbreak. It will be impossible to love anyone else unless you are truly devoted to idea of loving yourself.
“The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it.” – Nicholas Sparks
The key step to healing is allowing yourself some “me time.” Step back for a moment and rediscover who you really are as an individual. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and do something you love. Write in a journal, let all of your feelings out because it is okay to be sad. Have a weekend just to yourself, even if you have to get away for a while. This is a trying time for anyone and it okay to simply let go and take care of you for a bit. Reach out to a friend or family member who has experienced similar feelings. An older and wiser older sister who you can rely on to be honest with you.
“An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.” – Pam Brown
The best thing you can do when beginning to heal is to seek out your family and friends. They are the ones who will be honest and understanding of what you may be going through. It’s times like these where you need them the most. The most important thing is to take care of you and think about your future without your significant other and begin to let it all go. Remaining close to your family will help you to see that there is a future for you and you will be able to heal. Heartbreak is not the end of the world. You will be able to see the light at the end of the long dark tunnel.
Mending a broken heart is not something any of us want to have to do but it is a part of life. You aren’t the first to go through it and you won’t be the last. Turn to ones you love for healing and support so that you can remember what love really truly is.
