How to Overcome a Heartbreak

Updated on May 30, 2015

It's not the end of the world. Do not be cynical!

Right now you may be feeling as if it is the end of the world. This relationship did not work out and there is nobody else in this world for you. DO NOT BE CYNICAL! This world is full of people who probably are a better fit for you anyways. You will love again. Maybe not now, but give yourself time. Do not make the mistake of being negative and having a negative attitude towards everyone around you. Smile. Show kindness to all people and see how your day can transform. The power of positive thinking can transform your attitude and life. The truth is if you walk around being negative about life and love you will prolong the process of getting over your heartbreak. What are you waiting for? Get out there and smile and be as positive as you can be ever if it feels forced!

Get Yourself a Hobby

This sounds so typical. You hear this from everyone. Why? Because it works! A hobby that you like will not only make you feel great about yourself, but you may also meet some friends along the way and discover a talent you never even knew you had! People tend to ignore their friends and family while in a relationship. Call them! Catch up with them! Talk to them! Let it all out. True friends will be their till the end. It is great to not bottle up your feelings and let them out to a trusted friend! It is also a great distraction. In the beginning it is easy to fall into the trap of calling or texting your past lover. Its hard to do so when you are so busy doing you! The world is beautiful! Keep yourself busy. You will soon discover there is more to life than love!

It's time to grow!

No relationship is perfect! Nobody is either! Do not let this heartbreak go to waste!! Learn from it. Look back at the relationship as painful as it is and understand what you did not like and what you did like. Do not waste your time in the future. When you do let somebody in your life again respect yourself enough to get to know what you want. It's easy to become somebody else to please your significant other. It is not selfish to say you will never put up with something you do not like again. It saves you a future heartbreak and somebody else.

Do not Rebound!

Rebounds seem like an easy route to give you the little boost of confidence or to show yourself that you still got it or that you are still wanted, but do not fall into this trap because it will just make you feel worse down the road. Not only will you feel bad about yourself, but you make develop feelings for somebody you have nothing in common with or that person may develop feelings for you. It is just not a good idea. This will just mask the pain that sooner or later you will have to deal with anyways. Do yourself a favor and respect yourself enough to say no to rebounds!

Love Yourself First

Before you get back to the dating field learn to take some me time. Do all those things you wanted to do before you got into a relationship. I am sure a lot of your focus was on your significant other, but learn to please yourself now that you have the time to do so. Do not get back to the dating field until you love yourself. As the old saying goes: How do you expect to be loved, if you do not love yourself?
