Five ways to self recovery after heartbreak
Recovering from a broken heart
Loving is innate to mankind, but so is pain. When we love, we never think of what may come next. All we know is that we hold in our hearts the strong feeling of giving to that one person the passion inside. But when all else fails, and when the fairy tale ends, all that's left is the sorrow of goodbye.
But we must never forget that it is not the end of the world.
1. Recognize that everything happened. The more you deny the fact that you have been pained, the more the wounds will go deeper. Tell yourself that your heart was broken, and that you accept it as a fact.
2. Cry it out. Call it emotional brutality, but take out everything that will make you unleash the pain through tears. In this process, think of yourself as a candle. The more tears fall from you, you gain a stronger base.
3. Write about the pain. Sometimes, articulating the pain can be an effort. Plus, you need a true confidante who can listen to you but can also manage to put his mouth in his pocket. It is best that you write about your pain, and the great frustration that burdens you. The feeling of ease equals verbalizing your pain.
4. Use your pain productively. Write a poem, a love song, or paint a sad art work. As they say, the best masterpieces are created when the artist is pushed to the edge.
5. Never close doors. The immediate reaction of people when they are hurt is that they refuse to love again. Do not let the temporary pain limit your capacity to live and love. Open yourself to the possibility of finding a new love, and when you do, celebrate it with all your heart.
