  1. 1. How to Get Over a Broken HeartTrying to figure out how to get over a broken heart is a terrible place to be. Your relationshipis over, you feel heartbroken and you want something to make the pain go away. I understandwhat you’re going through and I know just how bad it feels.And although everyone has a different way of healing a broken heart, there are 5 tips that shouldbe at the corner stone of every break up recovery plan. 5 Tips for How to Get Over a Broken Heart1) Remember that Healing a Broken Heart is a ProcessGetting over a break up is a painful process and getting angry, frustrated and confused is all partof that process. So is crying, feeling sad, and having trouble sleeping. You may even findyourself having dreams about your ex and losing interest in activities that would normally exciteyou. If any of this has been happening to you, rest assured that everything is fine. In fact, all of
  2. 2. these things are perfectly normal after a break up. Yes, even dreaming about your ex. This issimply your unconscious mind trying to process the loss and work through it on its own.In fact, you can actually speed up the recovery process by allowing all of these feelings to comeup and work through them as they do. I know it’s not very comfortable but acknowledging thepain you’re in and working through it is one of the most important steps in healing a brokenheart. So give yourself some time to grieve the loss. It’s okay to feel down and not know how itwill all work out. Give yourself the permission to not know for now and trust that theseexperiences will reveal their true value to you down the line. For now, just be where you are andbe at peace with that.2) Realize that Not All Relationships Are Meant to LastMost relationships end and the majority of people who date are bound to break up. I know thatmay sound like a very negative and cynical view of relationships but that’s the reality of lifewhen you really look at the big picture. Just look around you, I surely don’t need to tell you howhigh the divorce rate is.My point is that most people simply do not belong together and it’s only a matter of time beforethey realize it and decide to break up. This is an inevitable part of the dating process and ifyou’re able to accept it as a natural part of dating then you will have a much easier time gettingover a break up.Once you accept that throughout your life you’ll be in a couple of relationships that just don’twork out, you can stop blaming yourself for what you might see as a “failure.” What we’re oftenso quick to write off as a “failed relationship” is actually a valuable life lesson if we stop toactually reflect on the relationship and learn from it.3) Reflect on the Relationship and Learn from itAs we date around, we learn more about ourselves and how we interact with others. But evenmore importantly, we get a better sense of what we really want in a relationship and what we’reabsolutely not willing to tolerate.So rather than writing this off as just another failed relationship, reflect on what happened andlearn from it. If you’re able to gain a greater sense of self-awareness from this relationship andmove on with your life with a much better idea of what you really want, then this relationshipwas a success in its own right. Sure, it may not be a success in the traditional sense – a marriagein which two people went on to live happily ever after – but it’s still a success because it taughtyou some very important lessons about yourself, relationships, and life in general. Once you’reable to see these things, you can be grateful for what you learned rather than feeling bad aboutwent wrong.

Theyhappen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” ~Charles JonesSo use this is an opportunity to become the person you deserve to be. Chances are you weretolerating things that you shouldn’t have been tolerating in your relationship. Well, now youdon’t have to tolerate it anymore. You’re free. All the stress and drama that your relationship wascausing you has been lifted. You now have a fresh bundle of clay and you’re free to mold it anyway you want.Sometimes we need to be hurt in order to grow and we must fail in order to know.We must lose in order to gain because some lessons are best learned through pain.4. Rediscover who you are without this relationshipRelationships have a way of affecting us on a very deep level, especially when we really lovesomeone. In fact, sometimes they can even make us lose a part of ourselves. Well now’s the timeto remember who you are again.Start by making a list of the things you want to accomplish in life to remind yourself of whereyou want to go. What interests do you have that you have ignored for a long time? What thingshave you not done for yourself that you would like to do again? Getting to know you and whatyou want for your future is crucial to getting over a breakup or divorce.5. Use this time to create the life of your dreamsOnce you start working towards your dreams again, you may realize how much you’ve lost bybeing in a codependent relationship. You’ve probably forgotten how much you like makingmusic, playing sports, or working out. If you’ve lost your job because of your relationship oryour hours have gotten cut back, consider starting fresh and finding a career that truly inspiresand fulfills you.Find what truly makes you happy and do what you love. That way, you can still be happy withyourself even if one particular relationship doesn’t work out. Remember that nothing shouldhave the power to take over your life and affect you like this.
