Discouraging - often painful - setbacks are part of the healing process after a physical illness, injury, or surgery. Overcoming setbacks is a difficult but necessary part of the healing process. It's the same with healing a broken heart after a loss; the setbacks are inevitable...but healing is still happening despite the paint.
Healing from the emotional, mental, and physical shock of breaking up is difficult even if your relationship was troubled and you suspected it was ending. But, the shock of a sudden breakup hits even harder.
This breakup advice is a refreshing change from my usual Blossom Tips for women! A divorced dad left this advice on one of my articles about wives cheating. He shared what helped him heal after his marriage ended; in this article I share the best of his breakup tips for guys.
Getting over him feels impossible because a breakup changes you. Breakups are especially painful when you want him back but can't have him. But you WILL heal, grow forward, and even blossom into who God created you to be...especially if you let yourself slowly and completely get over him.
Are you dreading your birthday? Maybe you broke up with someone you love and you’re wondering how to survive the heartache. Having a happy birthday after a breakup seems impossible….but what if you can be happier on your birthday?
Whether or not you broke up with your boyfriend because of money, you may not be prepared for the financial stress a breakup brings. Maybe you loaned your boyfriend money and he hasn’t repaid you. Maybe you owe your husband money for college tuition, credit card payments, mortgage payments, child support or alimony.
These five “core needs” will help you get through a breakup — even if you’ve been sad and miserable for months. You may already have done the most important thing, which is to simply say “I need help getting through this breakup.” Admitting that you need help, you need something different or better to help you through a breakup, is called the first step for a reason.
Sometimes you know for sure it's time to break up, and sometimes you're more confused than ever. These tips will help you know if it's time that you and your boyfriend broke up. You'll also learn how to cope with a breakup, and heal the hurt your heart will inevitably face.
No matter how long you prepared for the breakup, you'll still deal with guilty feelings. After all, you broke up with someone you once loved...and perhaps still do. But no matter what the circumstances of the breakup were, you must remember that guilt will eat you away and destroy your life if you let it fester and grow.
These four insights will help you get to acceptance, whether your breakup happened today or ten years ago. Accepting a breakup you didn’t want, expect or plan won’t be the easiest thing you ever do. But, learning how to accept that it’s really over will give you a new sense of freedom and peace in your life.
These practical, effective tips for finding freedom after a breakup will help you get over an ex-boyfriend or ex-husband. Breaking free - especially from a toxic ex relationship that is destroying your self-identity - doesn’t have to take months or years.
