Healing of a Broken Heart Feels Hard

Healing of a broken heart feels hard. You thought you found your knight and shining armor, your one and only love. For many reasons, only known to you, and maybe even unknown to you, the relationship ended and it feels that you have been left in a million pieces. Pieces that you will have to find a way to pick up and put back together. Some days are good. Some days are ok. And maybe some days are hard. Even feels impossible some days. However, healing from a broken heart is possible.

Life can cause unexpected twists and turns, heartaches, confusion and disappointments. Sometimes, the unexpected leaves you with a broken heart. Your broken heart is not forever, it’s a season. A journey. A process. A process to learn from the mistakes of the past and correct as you move toward your happiness. Your peace. Your purpose. Your rear view is not the current view and you can heal a broken heart with time. One second at a time, one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time.

I have a one year old daughter who LOVES to watch Sesame Street. She loves herself some Elmo and Abby. As I am busy doing laundry or cooking in the kitchen, I overheard a valuable lesson, not just for kids, but it applies to life. Elmo had a problem. His friend Abby says to him, “ What do we say when there is a problem? I wonder… What if… Let’s try!” Sesame Street isn’t just for the kids these days! 😊
As grown ups with challenges, we forget to break it down to its simplest form. It’s sometimes all in your perspective. What feels like a broken heart left in a million pieces needs an Elmo and Abby strategy. “ I wonder… What if… Let’s Try. You can heal from your broken heart by taking small steps in that direction. So, let’s try.

Remember that during this sensitive time, one of the most important things that you can do for yourself when you are healing from a broken heart is self care. Set aside time everyday for doing something that makes you feel good and positive. Self care is one of the most underrated and overlooked actions that woman can and should do, whether you are broken hearted or not. Whenever you ignore your needs for selfcare, it can find a way to leak out in other areas of your life and in numerous ways. You can become irritated and rude. You may feel mentally foggy, have very little to no energy or drive to do much. You may even blow things out of proportion and rational thinking goes straight of the window. A broken heart has a tendency to be quite a challenge on your physical, emotional, and mental wellness. So, it is even more important to level up your self care, intentionally recharge your battery often, and fill up your self care tank over. Self care is important.

Are you feeling hopeless? Don’t lose hope.

As long as there is life, you are not done. There’s a famous quote by Keanu Reeves “Falling in love and have a relationship are two different things. Life is exactly like this. You can fall in love with anybody who you feel is near to your soul but yes there are times when they prove you wrong. This is not your fault If they are not the missing part of your soul. Just understand the fact that they are not meant for you, you are going to find an amazing soul very soon who will be there in your every thick and thin. Who is going to support you unconditionally. You just have to keep your morale high; this is just a failed relationship not a failed life.

Moment for ADVICE: Healing a broken heart

I know this journey you are about to embark upon is scary, because you don’t know what to expect. You have so many questions “How am I going to make it without him on my own?” How am I going to provide for my child when I can’t even provide for myself?” How will I ever get through this?” I know these are just a few of the questions running through your mind.

I want to give you some advice through this process. You will go through so many emotions: sadness, fear, anger, confusion, loneliness, despair, loss of self, numbness, emptiness, rejection, abandonment, feelings of missing him and feelings like you hate him.

Some of these emotions will be very intense. It’s intense because divorce is literally the ripping apart of two souls that were once one. It’s ok, it’s normal. It’s part of the grieving process. Remember to breathe and allow yourself to feel, don’t try and sweep it under the rug. Be honest with yourself and get therapy.

This will give you the tools to learn how to cope with these emotions so you don’t become bitter and resentful.

Simple and Easy Self Care Tips For Feeling Hopeful:

  1. Practice deep breathing. Close your eyes and slow your breathing to a steady rhythm and slowly exhale.
  2. Begin journaling, writing and focusing on your successes in your life, big or small.

  4. Do one thing at a time. Devote all of your focus on that activity. Slow and intentional living.
  5. Give yourself the opportunity to try something new. It could be the key to rekindling interest in your life.

Love Your Own Self First

Your soul, your body and mind are the things that has the maximum right on your life. If you cannot take care of these properly, I am really sorry to tell you that you cannot love or take care any of your loved ones. Self-love is not wrong; it is essential and remember if you cannot love your own self, you cannot love people around you.

There are steps which you can take in this regard:
• Put yourself on the calendar! Schedule time on a daily basis for that amazing person you see in the mirror
• Read your favorite books
• Never wait for someone to make you happy
• Date yourself
• Watch your favorite movies even again and again
• Do things which makes you happy
• Learn to admire yourself, your hard work, and efforts
• Respect your needs and desires, don’t be ashamed

Quote-You’ve Got This (Healing of a broken heart)

Moment for ADVICE: Healing from a broken heart

I know you feel like you’ve lost your way and don’t know where to begin to pick up the pieces of your life. There will be days you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore. Just know you will get through this, you will make it through!

Even when you feel like giving up, be strong for your daughter. Pray, pray and Pray!! Pray for strength and guidance. As hard as it might be, you need to forgive him. Forgiveness isn’t for him, it’s for you! It’s a decision you must make in order to prevent this from poisoning your heart and turning it cold.

Take one day at a time and sometimes one minute at a time. I know the hurt is so intense it’s paralyzing and feels like you’ll never get over it. Just don’t make the mistake of creating unhealthy habits to try and numb the pain, you’ll only make matters worse.

The reason it’s so intense is because divorce is the death of a marriage and has the same grieving process as if a loved one died, the only difference is the body is still walking around so it’s difficult to get closer. You must seek a good therapist to find healthy ways of coping and how to move beyond this in a healthy way.

Be Happy Being You

Don’t try to become whom you are not. Don’t try to be what you are not. If you are nervous, be nervous. If you are shy, be shy. It’s cute. (Adriana Lima)

Don’t search for anything except peace. Try to calm the mind. Everything else will come on its own. (Baba Hari Das)

Questions to ask yourself :

Are you happy with your life?
Have you ever made yourself a priority?
Are you wasting your love and life on ungrateful people?
If you have a chance to stop and look back, would you be happy?

If the answer to any of these or questions is a “No” then remember right now the time is in your hands.

You can do anything as long as you prepare your mindset. You prepare your mindset by speaking words of encouragement to yourself. Speak life to yourself. No words of “ I can’t do this. This will never get better.” Or, “I will never love again” kind of talk.

Instead, replace the negative thoughts when they come, and they will come, with words of affirmation. Use these for example:

Moment for ADVICE: Healing from a broken heart

Don’t try and date because you are very very vulnerable! That’s the worst mistake you’ll ever make. You need to surround yourself with loving family and friends who can give you the emotional support to get through this.

Stay away from men right now.
Don’t allow for this situation to make you feel not good enough and cause you to develop self esteem issues.

You need to create self-declarations and place them all over your room to remind yourself you are fearfully and wonderfully made and no weapon formed against you will prosper. God will never give another person the power to ruin you unless you let them. Only you can control what you choose to believe.

Just because another person is too stupid to see your value doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy!

You’ll survive and you will come out on the other side. Trust God and trust the process!
