The Best Remedies for a Girl's Broken Heart

Updated on June 20, 2019

You Have Just Been Dumped

We have all been there. It sucks, but what are you going to do now? Are you going to be that girl who does not come out of the house for days? Are you going to be that girl that goes out and gets drunk with her friends, only to go home with a stranger? You are better than this. Do not feel like you have to post all over your social media that you are having the time of your life out with your friends. Do not feel like you have to act like everything is okay. It is okay to not be okay! Be mature, surround yourself with the people you love, and choose healthy ways to deal with your emotions.

1. Give Yourself Time to Grieve

The biggest mistake girls make after a breakup is trying to keep themselves busy for days on end afterwards. They do this so they do not have to feel the awful pain of losing that special someone in their romantic life. If you choose to go this route, you are only suppressing your true emotions and putting off the inevitable. Something will set you off into a melt down one day, and it will feel as if the weight of the world is crashing on your shoulders. The sooner you get out the tears, the better. Your eyes may be puffy and red for hours after, but you will feel so much better when there are no more tears left to cry.

2. Go Out and Have Fun

Do fun daytime or nighttime activities with your best friends. Do something that is going to make you smile and laugh. I highly recommend going to an amusement park during the daytime. What better way to scream out your anger and frustration than on a rollercoaster ride?

During the nighttime, have a girls' night out. Do not do anything reckless on your night out or something that you may regret. Have a simple night out that includes a few drinks with your friends. You can even stay in and have a wine and movie night to cure your blues.

3. Watch Something That Will Make You Laugh

Laughter is the best medicine. Stay away from the sappy movies about love like The Notebook. Watch something that is going to make you feel happy and put you in a good mood. The following recommendations, as of June 2019, can be found on Netflix, Hulu, or Youtube.

  1. John Mulaney's stand-up comedy "New in Town"
  2. John Mulaney's stand-up comedy "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City"
  3. John Mulaney's stand-up comedy "The Comeback Kid"
  4. Kevin Hart's stand-up comedy "Irresponsible"
  5. That 70's Show
  6. The Office
  7. F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
  8. New Girl
  9. Superstore
  10. Lucifer

4. Look at Baby Pictures of Your Favorite Animal

Google Image endless pictures of baby animals, starting with your favorite ones. Look up baby puppies, kitties, ducklings, elephants, and more. You will start to feel better in no time!

5. Treat Yourself to Some Ice Cream

Go to the grocery store or your favorite ice cream shop, and buy your favorite ice cream. Half Baked Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream always mended my heart during my dating days. It is okay to have an "eat your feelings" day. Just do not let it get out of hand to the point where it is unhealthy for you mentally and physically.

6. Exercise

Even if you do not like to exercise, give it a go! The harder you workout, the more your frustration and anger will be released. Working out does not mean you have to be in the gym dripping sweat. You can do other things like take a walk on a greenway, go hiking at a nearby state park, or go rock climbing at an indoor activity center. Exercising does not always have to be boring and miserable. Have fun with it, and work out that frustration!

Love Comes When You Least Expect It

A common mistake girls make after a breakup will be immediately trying to find another guy to be with. Give yourself some time before consulting dating apps like Bumble and Tinder. Give yourself time to learn who you are again. Enjoy life on your own with your friends by your side. Do not allow yourself to wallow in your own self pity. Remember to always take care of yourself. I have found based on my own experience, and my friends, that love comes your way when you stop looking for it.

      Sound advice.

      Probably the most important thing is to ACCEPT it's over!

      In order to "move on" you have to "let go".

      One of the reasons why it's so hard for a lot of people to move on is because they don't want to let go. In other instances they feel as though need some "closure" and last but not least many people are hoping for a magical reconciliation.

      They imagine their ex to come crawling back begging them for forgiveness and apologizing...etc. You have to let go to move on.

      Observe the No Contact Rule

      Another good idea is block emails, phone numbers, and unfriend them in your social media. Oftentimes the person ending a relationship will offer friendship as a "consolation prize" so they don't feel like the "bad guy". The person who got dumped accepts the idea of being "friends" because it gives them (hope) there may be a chance to get back together at some point.

      Truth is sometimes exes end up having sex and once you find out it that's all it was for your ex you now feel used and hurt again!

      The best friendships between exes usually take place after a large gap in time whereby both people have found love and happiness with someone new.

      The opposite of love is not hate. It's indifference.

      You're not ready to be "friends' until you get to a point whereby when you hear your ex's name or voice and it does not stir up emotions. Your future lies ahead of you and not behind you.

      Every ending is a new beginning!
