When you are heartbroken the pain can be immense. Your heart literally aches. It is a horrible feeling and yet it passes. In each heart break I have had, I would say that time (the immediate days and weeks following) is the most painful. I remember one particular break up where I was aware of this. I wished myself 6 months forward to when I knew I would feel better. It is true, the pain does not stay with you. You do get over it. You will be happy again. You will meet someone better! I think you need to talk it out when you are heartbroken, but you also suddenly have lots of lonely time on your hands- what should you do with all of this time? You should do things that make you happy. Things like:-
get a massage
write a poem
focus on work
plan a holiday
take up a hobby - creative?
learn to cook
do things that your ex didn't like but you do
watch B grade movies
laugh at yourself
think how things could be worse
list the things you won't miss about your ex
have a mantra like 'I am strong' or 'this is his/her loss"
learn a language
talk to a friend
do cultural things
There are so many other things you can do for pleasure. Now is your time to shine and do them! Enjoy your freedom, cherish it and relish it! Time heals but it also flies, so embrace it and let your heart run free until you meet someone better!
When you don't get what we want it is just the universe saying it has something even better waiting for you!
