Effective Ways to Get Over Heartbreak

We’ve all been there, and for those who haven’t been, I want to prepare you for what you’re in-store for.  Here are some steps to get passed that crushing feeling of heartache:

1) Get rid of the souvenirs:  It is almost mandatory for you start throwing things away and start erasing memories – unless you believe the relationship will be restored, if there is a possibility of the relationship being rekindled, store away, give back or hid anything that pertains to the relationship to give yourself space until time permits, but never throw away anything. Memories affect a person most after heartache, the memories cause you to think about what could’ve been, what happened, what will not happen, and what you did or they did.  It puts you in a stage where all you think about is the relationship and mainly in a regretful manner, this stage or phase is where it saddens many or sometimes leads to depression. Thinking about the relationship over and over again is what you need to stay away from and you can only do that by getting rid of the things that brings back old memories.  Old memories will come, but having those souvenirs brings back more memories, more often.

    Ok so far I am loving all articles!!! I definitely need to work on #’s 3 & 7…LOL!! Them dang love songs always get to me…haha!!! I know regardless of what others say my heart will heal in time and I am not rushing the process. I am growing and learning so much about myself right now. Loving me and standing my ground. Knowing I allowed myself to settle for less than what I deserved has made me realize I won’t settle for that nonsense again. Very recently I’ve had to remove a very nice guy from my life because all he was offering was “friends w/ benefits” status. I have no hard feelings towards him now do I speak badly of him. But I know what I want and I know what I deserve.

    Great article. I do practice number 7 because I’ve been advised to go where the love is, not where it’s supposed to be. He was not good to me and made me feel worthless. Hiding from them isn’t necessarily unhealthy. Sometimes it is self-preservation.

      Sometimes self preservation is good and is healthy but it can be unhealthy. All about balance. I agree.
