A Broken Heart By Psychic Gabriela
Written by Gabriela at Psychic Mix
You cannot believe it; you are so sad and hurt you think you are going to fall apart. Nothing makes sense. You want answers and don’t understand how the person you were so in love with and so intimate with has left you like this. How are you going to live like this? A broken heart is one of the most devastating things that can happen to you and the pain is real. There is no off switch to help you take those loving feelings away and there is also no switch that will make you feel better immediately.
But there are things that you can do to help you through this awful time of your life.
You Need to Grieve
The most important thing to recognise is that this is real, and that you need to grieve. If you do not face the hurt and the rejection, you cannot heal. I suggest you feel the pain— don’t try and block it off— go through those awful feelings, where you feel like you are falling apart and don’t know how to face each day.
You can expect a lot of tears, waking up in the night with dreaded feelings, and even a numbness; as if this is not happening to you. Please, although it is hard going though these feelings, name them and honour them. And slowly each day they will become less overwhelming.
There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Give yourself time to heal. This is a process that won’t simply be over in a day, a week, or even a month. The deeper your connection and emotions were, the longer it will take to heal. What is important here is to say to yourself “I will survive this”, and set a vision of yourself, healed and smiling. Yes, I know this is the hard bit, but try a little bit every day, building on that vision slowly and with even more positive situations. This will help you so much in the future.
After a short while I would suggest that you list all your good points including all the things you are grateful for. This may seem like too much effort, but it is really good step in seeing yourself for who you are, and what you are worth.
Build on the list as often as you can and don’t be shy, this is your brag list and even the smallest thing you should list. Don’t forget about your friends and family during this time— they will be there for you and want to help you return to your happy self. Try and see them, go out with them or invite them over for a “I am love” get-together. Cry with them, laugh with them, and be in the moment. Crying gets rid of all that pent-up sadness and laughter is also very good, it is one off the strongest healing things you can do.
