Effective Ways to Cope with a Heartbreak
“What is love?” is such a deep question that poets, writers, painters all have spent an eternity trying to find an answer but to no avail. Is it the journey, the destination or everything in between? Is it just a facilitator for a good life or is it life’s purpose itself? Should true love happen only once or are we allowed to have multiple lovers at any point in time. These questions are older than time and even Adam and Eve wouldn’t have been able to answer them despite having only each other for love and companionship.
Love is a beautiful feeling where we look at the world with rose tinted glasses and everything is glossy and fluffy. But the flip side to this mushy love business is the ugly break-up and heartbreak which is even life threatening than a pandemic because the latter may someday have a vaccine but never for the former. A break-up could be one sided or mutual but it hurts like hell for both partners. Going from lovers to strangers who know all your deepest secrets and desires is a depressing emotion. It feels like the end of the world and you bombard yourself with negative feelings which hinder the process of acceptance and healing.
Our brain feels sorrow only for a few hours, rest is self inflicted. You’re allowed to grieve a dead relationship because you’re only human; but when that goes on for an indefinite period of time and destroys your sanity and puts you on a path of self destruction, you know you’ve got to take concrete steps to come back to your normal happy self.
Following are few steps which can help in Coping with a Break-up:
Breakups suck but you won’t fully appreciate the rose without the thorns. A relationship gives a partner for life or a lesson for life. Both are a win if you’re optimistic enough. There is definitely someone out there who’s your perfect match. So before finding the right partner why don’t you try being the right partner yourself? Like begets like, right!
