Almost all of us have experienced the pain of broken heart.

The pain of a broken heart is really indescribable. Sometimes we just can’t find a way to survive all of that and we don’t know how to move on. Recovering takes some time, but at the end you will succeed. So if your heart is broken and if you are feeling down, here are ways to survive a broken heart.

First of all, you have to accept your broken heart. Accepting a broken heart implies:

You can be emotional.

If you want to cry, cry, if you want to spend all day in bed, why not? Whenever you feel down, let it all out, you will feel better after. You have every right to be sad, but let out all your sadness, cry and cry, but then move on. You don’t have to hold your emotion.

Get rid of negative thoughts.

After a broken heart you might feel like there is no reason for life. The world can look like a dark place, but it is not like that. You need to get rid of negative thoughts, let them go. Focus on beautiful things in your life, do things that make you happy. It is important to remember that everything will be okay, pain is not permanent.

You can talk with someone about your feelings and about what you are going through.

Talk with your friends and your family about what you are going through. Talking about it can really help you to feel better. You don’t have to be ashamed of your pain and your feelings. Put your feelings into words, it can really help you.

Remind yourself of your worth and strength.

The pain you are going through can make you to begin to question your worth. Remind yourself of your worth and strength. There is no reason to beat yourself up over the breakup. Do things that make you feel good about yourself, do thing that you are good at. Everything will be okay, because you are strong enough to overcome sadness and your broken heart.

Stop doing things that remind you of your past.

There is no reason to stay in your past. Stop doing all things that remind you of your past and your ex. Those things will just make you feel bad. Stop stalking your ex on social media, stop listening to “your song,” stop looking at pictures of you and your ex. Actually stop hurting yourself, there is no reason for dwelling on the past.

Take care of yourself.

You do not have the benefit of sleeping all day. Eat healthy, push yourself to exercise. And definitely avoid getting drunk, as a hangover will lay you lower than you already feel. You are the most important, your health is important, stop doing anything that will disturb our health.

You don’t have to be alone, surround yourself with friends and family.

There is no reason to be alone. Maybe your ex is not in your life anymore, but you have plenty of other people who will make you happy. All of them will give you some love. Spend time with your friends and family, surround yourself with laughter, it will help you through what you are experiencing.

You need to know that there might be bad days.

You can feel better over a night, everything needs some time. There is no reason to be frustrated if you are one day doing better and another day you feel broken. There will be bad days, so you don’t have to be hard on yourself if you sometimes feel sad. Recovering will take some time.

There is no reason to play “ex games.”

Your relationship ended, you two broke up, and there is no question about it. Your partner doesn’t want to be in a relationship with you, so don’t waste your time on playing games to get him or her back. There is no reason to make them jealous, or to call them constantly. You two broke up, and that is it.

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”
