To the Ladies: Moving on from Heartbreak

It might be the love month, but some ladies are mending their broken hearts right now. There might be those who finally confessed their love for someone only to find out that the affection was unrequited. Some have probably just broken up with their long-time boyfriends. Others still might be talking to lawyers about divorce in Denver or any other city in the USA

Whatever your situation is, remember that it all shall pass. Still, you have to find the strength to get on with your life. Here are some helpful suggestions for moving on after a romantic heartbreak:

Clear your head

Do you have well-meaning family members and friends who want to be there for you after your heartbreak? This is well and good, but you should try to have some alone time, even for just a short while, to clear your head. You can meditate in your bedroom, on a park bench, or anywhere else you’ll have peace.

If you have a favorite activity, say painting or knitting, do it because it will also help keep your mind off things. Exercising, going to the gym, taking your bike for a ride, or jogging around the neighborhood can prove helpful as well. The important thing here is to clear your mind of all thoughts about the past and future and just focus on the present.

Accept your new reality

At first, it might be hard to get used to the fact that from now on, you’ll be flying solo. But this is your new reality, so you need to accept it. If you’re used to cooking dinner for two, now you have to change and just have dinner with your family or friends. You probably had to put up with sports games or video games on the living room’s TV. Well, you should be celebrating because now the 60-inch flat-screen is all yours to do with as you please (hello, binge-watching!).

The key is to always look on the bright side. Your life is yours again; you can now do your thing without putting someone else’s interests and happiness before yours.

Begin your healing process

Be it days, weeks, months, or even years, you’ll need to heal from the heartbreak. And you should initiate the healing process. Start by treating yourself right. If getting a pixie cut and coloring your hair purple will make you feel good, then go ahead. You can also go on a shopping spree and buy yourself some clothes, shoes, or bags. Go out and spend time with the people—your family and friends—who love you.

And finally, you need to let go. Let go of the person. Let go of the relationship. Don’t think about the what-ifs, the maybes, and the should-haves. The only thing you need to think about is the wonderful future waiting for you.

There‘s Life After Heartbreak

Ladies, a romantic heartbreak is not the end of your life. It’s actually a chance for you to start anew. And it’s up to you how and when you’ll move on so that you can start living the rest of your life.
