When you're in love, all the pieces fit
But when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together
I've been through my share of break-ups, rejection, and "getting over it".
It doesn't seem to get any easier no matter how much "experience" I gain.
A broken heart (whether it be a small tiny rip or a full-on gut-wrenching "My life is over" feeling) SUCKS.
Here are my attempts to heal a broken heart.
Cash in your friend chips. Hopefully, you have good friends to lean on.
I am lucky to have great friends who will listen to my verbal diarrhea (And I usually end up repeating the same things over and over again... so they're REALLY good friends!)
Thanks, girls (and boys who give me the realistic guy's p.o.v.)
Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Lipstick Jungle, Glee, and Korean Dramas are some of my favorites.
- If you're feeling really dark/angry/moody: Dexter, Nip/Tuck, 6 Feet Under
- Funny: 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother
Dear Lord, Take me out of this misery. Now. Please. Hurry. What are you waiting for???
6. Keep Busy
Meet up with friends (and talk their ears off), Become a work-a-holic, Party Party Party, Work out like you're preparing for a Triathalon~Whatever works...
Indulging in your sadness will only perpetuate it.
- At least if you're busy, it's easier to take your mind off other things...
or at the very least you'll get a lot done and won't become a big fat lump that's glued to the couch...
7. Go AwayI like to travel. Sadness feels a lot better when you're on a trip (SOMETIMES!)
I drive a lot when I can't go away. I hate driving, but it feels good at times to go fast and blast loud music. This is one of those times.
I try to sleep as much as possible when suffering from heartbreak... but I also suffer from insomnia... so it sucks. But the more you can sleep, the less time there is to be sad.
Either way~ I usually feel better!
A broken heart is one of the worst feelings in the world (or at least in MY world).
I feel too much: Too much sadness. Too much pain.
But in the end, I don't lose hope.
Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world,
which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night.
I miss you like hell.
