HEALING A BROKEN HEART
“Stab the body and it heals, but injure the heart
and the wound lasts a lifetime.”
– Mineko Iwasaki
When you’re in love your whole life is bathed in a golden glow. When that love ends you’re suddenly plunged into darkness. It hurts, and it feels like the pain will never go away.
The heartache of breaking up is an age-old theme of songs, plays and poems dating back to the beginning of time, which is no help because you always think you’re the only person it’s ever happened to.
There’s no instant cure, and the people around you never seem to understand. You feel as if your world has come to an end, and there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Not surprisingly – studies show that the same parts of the brain that are activated when you experience physical pain are also triggered during the upset of a loved one finishing with you.
People will always tell you “There’s plenty more fish in the sea,” which of course you refuse to believe because you know that he or she was the only one for you.
Strategies to Move On From Heart-Break
As much pain as you’re in, there are some things that can really help.
Allow yourself time to recover. Don’t expect to feel better instantly, but your memories will eventually fade and you will get back to feeling like your old self again. Most importantly, don’t ever think you won’t recover, because you most certainly will!
Keep active and engaged:
Don’t dwell on “what might have been.” If you go into a funk and spend all your time daydreaming, you’re going to feel so much worse! So even if you don’t feel like it, you need to exercise, meet up with friends and family, enjoy the activities you’ve always loved to do…in other words, work and play as hard as you can, and get back to your old life!
Think about the bad times!
It’s easy to dwell on the good times, but there has to have been some not-so-good times too – after all the relationship didn’t last, and probably for good reason. So don’t over-romanticize, focus on those bad times, learn from them, and move on with your life.
Move on from heart-break with hypnotherapy:
You can and will get through this, and you will love again!
But if you feel really depressed and think you can’t get over it, please allow me to help. Your subconscious mind can be programmed to begin healing by substituting positive thought for the negative ones.
Call me for a free consultation for a broken heart. You’ll only need a few sessions. And you will immediately feel better after just the first one.
