This is What Heartbreak  Really Feels like  ...

Falling in love is simply magical. It is as if the world suddenly feels brighter and lighter, and all you want to do is wear your beautiful smile around. Love is so powerful that for many, it directly affects how they feel about themselves and how they perceive the world. Having said that, surely you can imagine how terrifying it must feel to be heartbroken.

1 The Initial Feeling of Heartbreak is like a Dagger to the Heart

The first reaction to heartbreak feels like sharp objects prodding you all over your body. It's painful physically, emotionally, and mentally. Your body feels tired and weary and the tears only add to the pain you're feeling.

2 After a Few Days, You Have Lost Interest in Everything and Everyone While the Pain Continues to Prod

After a few days - or even after a week, the pain feels as though it's never going to leave. You've spent countless hours crying, talking about your heartbreak constantly, or not talking about it at all. Either way, you're filled with a feeling of hopelessness and despair.

3 After a Few Weeks, the Pain Subsides and You Slowly Start to Feel like Your Old Self

During the initial period of heartbreak, you think that it'll never end - it does. And this will come in a few weeks time. Slowly, your tears will start to dry and you'll start to regain your sense of hope, love, and positivity. It takes time, but it is definitely coming.

4 After 1-2 Months, You'll Be More Emotionally Stable, and You'll Be Able to Enjoy Life More and More Each Day

The worst part about heartbreak is that there is very little you can do to minimise the pain. The sad truth is, you will just have to ride it out. Spend those days crying and feeling as if the world has ended, because trust me, in time, that pain does get better and eventually, it does disappear.

5 After a Couple Months, You'll Find Inspiration Again. You'll Notice the Beauty and Opportunities the World Has to Offer You

You will begin to feel optimistic again. You will see a beautiful sunset, or listen to calming music and you will realise that the world is absolutely amazing and the possibilities in life are essentially endless. You will draw inspiration from life once again.

6 You Will Change Your Perspective on Life

You will be thankful for the things that came out of this horrible heartbreak and realise that you ARE stunning, you are worthy of exceptional love, and you are brave, confident and wonderful.

7 You Will Take All of Your Negative Feelings and Rid Them of Your Mind

Now, it's your time to shine. You've realised that there is absolutely no point in letting one person dictate how you feel about the world, and that you are ready to take on new challenges, spend more time with loved ones, and perhaps meet someone new.

The stages of heartbreak are something that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy, but we all go through it. The most important thing to remember is that those feelings of hopelessness and negativity will go away. You have to embrace those feelings to realise just how strong you really are.

After all of it, you will come out being a better person because of it.
