It’s natural to feel depressed after a breakup. You said goodbye to someone you love, perhaps losing the most important relationship in your life. You will never be the same, and neither will your heart. But even though breaking up hurts — and feels so unnatural — there are healthy ways to encourage the healing process.
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.
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?
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.
Feeling numb after the death of someone you love is a natural, healthy part of the grieving process. The shock protects you from the cliff of insanity and helps you cope with daily life. But what if you feel like you’ll never feel normal again? These ideas for healing emotional numbness will help you through the grieving process.
When a relationship ends – especially after a man unexpectedly leaves – how do you stop feeling sorry for yourself? You don’t want to struggle with self-pity for months or even years after a breakup…and yet you can’t change your feelings.
How do you distance or detach emotionally from someone you love, but can’t be with or have to let go of? Learn how a healthy emotional detachment can help you heal from a relationship breakup and recover yourself. This process will help you find freedom to love again in fresh, healthy ways!
