Getting over heartache gets tougher especially when your will power is weakened. Though you may be surprised, you will take much longer to get over the heartache, if you do not make an honest effort. Your will power should be strong. If you want your broken heart to heal, you have to make efforts. Even if you have lost confidence because of heartbreak, try regaining it. You may overcome heartache only when you decide firmly that you want to do so.

Here are few tips to help you overcome heartache:

  • Try to forget it ‘Though it’s easy said than done, do not torment yourself by thinking of what went wrong all the time. Just try to forget it all. If possible, even forgive your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. If you feel he/she has been unjust to you, and you are in no mood to forgive, you can forget, at least. If you do so, you will not be angry with the one you have been in love with. Anger ruins the peace of mind. If you cool down, your mind is relaxed. It’s a logical step to be in harmony with yourself. Being in harmony with yourself makes it easier for you to be in harmony with the world around.
  • Visit your hometown ‘Go back to your roots. Visit your hometown either during the weekend or take a few days off from work. Remember your parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc., have been a strong support system to you. If you need emotional support, you may approach them again. You may also call upon your school or college friends. Sharing your sorrows with them may help you get over heartache.
  • Work harder ‘Work harder than usual. If possible, also spare some time for exercise. All these activities will leave you exhausted at the end of the day. When you are tired, you fall asleep easily. It’s preferable to sleep for 8 hours everyday. It will help you stay fit.
  • Do not shed tears because someone doesn’t care for you anymore ‘If you feel like crying, cry your heart out once. But it’s no use crying all the time. It will not help you get over heartache. Moreover, your head may begin to ache, besides your heart.
  • Go closer to nature ‘Natural surroundings may prove to be therapeutic especially when your heart aches. You may visit a wildlife sanctuary, or the countryside. The calm natural environment may help you forget that your heart has been aching.
  • Help others who suffer ‘You may educate the poor children. Or join a social welfare organization. Heartache is not the only reason behind someone’s suffering. There are many people in this world who suffer. Try to help them. It will help you forget your troubles.

Do not accept a miracle overnight. Getting over heartache requires a little time. It’s advisable to follow the tips above. But allow your heart to heal gradually. Remember that your relationship had developed over time. You aching heart will also heal with time.
