Dealing with a break up can be the most impossible thing to do, when a person is actually had heartbreak. However, many people will come up with different kinds of suggestions to deal with the same. Most people will tell you that you will get over it or you will meet someone else, but when it is happening to you, it can feel like no one else in the world has ever felt the same way. If you are experiencing these feelings, there are things you can do to lessen the pain. Here are some tips that might help:

Some people find that sharing their feelings with someone they trust, someone who recognizes what they are going through and it helps them feel a bit better. That could mean talking over all the things you feel, even having a good cry on the shoulder of a comforting friend or family member.

Some people can heal better if they hang out and do the things they normally enjoy, like seeing a movie or going to a concert, to take their minds off the hurt. If you feel like someone cannot relate to what you`re going through or is dismissive of your feelings, find someone more sympathetic to talk to.

One should always remember what is good about them. This quality should not be forgotten, since sometimes people with broken hearts start blaming them for whatever has happened. They may be really down on themselves, exaggerating their faults as though they did something to deserve the unhappiness they are experiencing. Remind yourself of your good qualities, and if you cannot think of them because your broken heart is clouding your view, get your friends to remind you.

You should be sure to take good care of yourself. A broken heart can be very stressful so you should not let the rest of your body get broken too. Get lots of sleep, eat healthy foods, and exercise regularly to minimize stress and depression and give your self-esteem a boost.

Going through a break-up can be really tough, and getting some of those raw emotions out can be a big help. That can be done through crying out loud. For men it can be very tough, but there is no shame in crying now and then. You can just a find a place where you can be alone, like crying into your pillow at night or in the shower when you are getting ready for the day.

Do the things you normally enjoy. Whether it`s seeing a movie or going to a concert, do something fun to take your mind off the negative feelings for a while.

Keep yourself busy. Sometimes this is difficult when you are coping with sadness and grief, but it really helps. This is a great time to redecorate your room or try a new hobby. That does not mean you should not think about what happened since working things through in our minds is all part of the healing process but it just means you should focus on other things too.

It takes time for sadness to go away. Almost everyone thinks they won`t feel normal again, but heartbreak almost always heals after a while. But the healing time for your heartbreak depends on what caused your heartbreak, how you deal with loss, and how quickly you tend to bounce back from things. Getting over a break-up can take a couple of days to weeks and sometimes even months.

Filling your life with activities that you enjoy - creative, playful, sociable, soulful activities are all ways to nurture yourself back to health. Breaking-up can feel unbearably hard and so permanent. Let yourself know that you will not always feel this way and in the meantime let yourself grieve your losses fully. You will feel stronger and lighter for having done so.
