“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” – Mark Twain
Mending a broken heart is never easy. In the long run, we have to do what is best for us and sometimes that is the hardest thing to do. Remembering who you are is the key to getting over someone you loved. Finding peace within yourself and understanding that all good things must come to an end is the key to healing. Learning to love yourself is a big part of healing the heartbreak. You may not love yourself to be capable of receiving the love that you truly deserve. Your life does not have to be over, it is truly just the beginning of learning to open your heart and soul to true love.
“Sometimes a little heartbreak is a lesson, and the best thing to do is just learn the lesson.” – Jon Voight
The key step to healing is allowing yourself some “me time.” Step back for a moment and rediscover who you really are as an individual. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and do something you love. Write in a journal, let all of your feelings out because it is okay to be sad. Have a weekend just to yourself, even if you have to get away for a while. This is a trying time for anyone and it okay to simply let go and take care of you for a bit.
“Think about any attachments that are depleting your emotional reserves. Consider letting them go.” – Oprah Winfrey
It is important to remove the tangible things in your life that remind you of that individual. It may sound childish, but removing reminders of you relationship will help you along in the healing process. Whether they are old pictures, letters, journals, or ticket stubs to the first concert you went to, get it out of the way. Out of sight, out of mind.
Social media is a huge part of people’s lives nowadays. So a key component to letting someone go is to rid them from your cell phone and social media contacts. You may feel tempted to contact them but it is better if you try and distract yourself by exercising, reading a book, or hanging out with a girlfriend. No good can come from rehashing the past.
“Family is the most important thing in the world.” – Princess Diana
The best thing you can do when beginning to heal is to seek out your family and friends. They are the ones who will be honest and understanding of what you may be going through. It’s times like these where you need them the most. The most important thing is to take care of you and think about your future without your significant other and begin to let it all go.
