Eight Ways to Get Over the Person Who Broke Your Heart

Aug 17, 2007
Getting over someone whom you devoted all your time for so many months or even years is no walk in the park. Undergoing the process of denial, depression and anger is natural but sulking in your room for longer than necessary while watching the whole world passes you by is not healthy anymore. Wake up! You need to move on.Here are few tips on how to start picking up those pieces down to the fixing your broken heart.

1. Cry. Face the fact that you are sad and depressed. There is no point of hiding it to the world most especially to yourself. Lock yourself in your room and cry. Sob or even wail all you want, it is alright. Just cry to let out all the heartaches you are feeling. We who have been hurt before know it hurts so badly and the pain is so unbearable. You can let it out by all means. You might get puffy and swollen eyebags but at least you are not stressing your way to sickness. Remember, it is healthy to express your anger and hurt. You can vent your feelings and relieve the tension and stress you feel inside.

2. Lend Some Ear. When in pain and confused, it is always advisable to have someone around. Pouring over your sentiments with a friend over a bottle or a cup of coffee is a great catharsis. Who cares if you have told the story a hundred times already to your friends? As long as the anguish is still there just keep on talking. It will soothe your soul.

3. Do not Listen to Love Songs. As we all know, love songs tend to stir our emotional side, so be wary and do not let yourself indulge into listening to love songs when you are broken hearted. You will end up feeling like a complete loser and that is the last thing you want to happen.

4. Keep Yourself Busy. Do the things that you neglected to do because you were busy with someone else before. Finish your project that you left idle for almost a month now. Open that novel where your bookmark has been on the same chapter for already a year. Do all the things you have been dying to do before but just did not have the time. Organize an out of town trip with your friends or try hosting a party. Be with happy people and absorb their vibes.

5. Reminisce. This may sound weird but is sometimes effective. If avoiding all the places you two have been and all the things both of you were doing before did not come up with a good result, then might as well try this one. No, reminiscing does not mean that you have to punish yourself by reliving the memories you once shared, it is just a way of making yourself immune to all the pains he has caused and for you to face the reality. Remembering the good times you have spent together will somehow make you realize that life is not bad after all. Believe me, in time, you will just find yourself laughing at all the things that happened and it will somehow make you proud also because you have overcome them all.

6. Start a Diary. Start writing in a journal and make it your new best friend. Jot down all the dreadful things that happened to you and purge out all the things that is on your mind, no holds barred. Confess to your new best friend how despicable your boyfriend is and vow to forget him the soonest time possible.

7. Clean up the Clutters. It is time to pick up the pieces and clean up the clutters of your once shattered life. A closing does not necessarily mean a shut down; it is just a phase that everyone needs to undergo to pave way for a new start. Keep away from your sight all the things that bring back memories of you together. Put them in a box and make sure you will never get a glimpse of it to avoid temptation to look at them again. And when I mean keep away from sight, just toss it aside first, not return to the giver.

8. Pamper yourself. Head to the spa, gym or even to the parlor for a complete makeover. Enough of the sulking days, it is unfair for you to see him happy while you are still there in your room wallowing in despair. Give yourself a treat and stop looking miserable. You would not want to look wretched when the hands of fate suddenly give you the person who will completely ease your broken heart, would you?
