Heartbreak is one of the most painful, yet unavoidable things in life that a person can experience. It can take a long time to get over it, but if you’re lucky, it’ll only last for about 5 minutes, and you’ll probably find someone better. It’s hard to go through, but you have to remember that there are better things out there for you and it won’t hurt forever.

It actually feels like a part of your soul has been ripped out and all you want to do is crawl in bed and never come out.   But though it may seem impossible now, here are some ways in which one could possibly cope with the emotional pain that gets left behind:

  1. Don’t bottle your emotions up – allow yourself to feel sad, angry, and hurt.
  2. Talk to someone you trust about how you’re feeling – they can offer support and guidance.
  3. Get active and take your mind off things by going for a run or hitting the gym.
  4. Eat healthy foods that will make you feel good both physically and emotionally.
  5. Avoid any type of self-harm or destructive behavior. It never solves anything.
  6. Give yourself time to heal – it won’t happen overnight, but eventually you’ll start to feel better.
  7. Seek professional help if you need it. Remember that there’s no shame in it.
  8. Remember that you are not alone in this and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
  9. Take comfort in the knowledge that the pain will eventually subside.
  10. Move on with your life and don’t ever look back.
