There are so many things you hear when you have a broken heart: “time heals…”;

“what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”;

“you were too good for him anyway”;

“there are plenty more fish in the sea”;2

and so on and on.

The words might connect in your head, but the message isn’t getting through to your heart … yet.

So how do you move on from a broken heart and be better for it?2

1. Deal with the Issue of Your Heartbreak Head on

Does the scent of his aftershave on his old shirt still leave you in tears?

Do you still have trouble looking into the future because he isn’t in it?

Do you sometimes wish that he were dead so then at least you would know where he is?

The fact is, you are suffering from a broken heart, and “that feeling is not going to go away…it is just going to become easier to bear.” That is a line from a young woman called Michelle Duel, who died of cancer in 2015 in her early thirties.

What she meant was that you cannot hide from your heartbreak;

all you can do is either live with it or bury it and numb the pain as if it were a toothache.

You have to understand that in time, you will learn how to handle the pain of the loss.2

Being Strong is Okay, but You Have to Let Yourself Cry at Some Point

Can someone how to get over the man you truly loved and it all went wrong but you work with him. I was the one rejected and he got a full time job out of it. Help?

It's NEVER KIND OR APPROPRIATE TO WISH SOMEONE DEAD! If you TRULY LOVED THE PERSON, you would STILL WISH HIM OR HER WELL AND NOT SPEAK BADLY OF SAID PERSON. Would you want that person to speak that way of you? No.

I had a guy I really liked and I happened to love him and he just wanted sex. He knew I wanted more out of this all he did was ignore my calls and texts but when he wanted to talk he just wanted sex from me and I'm so hurt from that but oh well. Lesson learned

I learned you shouldn't say things you can't take back. I take responsibilities in the failure of my last relationship I said terrible, hurtful, yet truthful things I could never take back and that seriously damaged the relationship. Lesson for me was unless you are "done" don't do or say things that will damage the relationship long term. "Angy"

My ex and I broke up and it was a mutual decision but it still hurt just as much. I wasn't happy for a long time and I met someone and we became great friend, a little while later I finally decided to end my relationship and subsequently started dating the friend. That has been the best rebound, he's sensitive sweet and always makes sure I'm alright and happy. Not all rebounds are a bad idea, I'm at my happiest
