Your first step is to see if your relationship can be salvaged. Sometimes in the heat of the situation we can do things we later regret. Perhaps you dumped your other half but now think you were too hasty. Perhaps she or he might be willing to get back with you? If you now feel that this is the relationship that is meant for you, then you should not be afraid to ask for another chance.
Often you have both said things that you later regret. Couples can come under severe stress due to financial worries, concerns over children, health and not to mention job related stress. The consequences can result in you both treating each other unfairly, which leads to a break up. If you decide that this is one of the main reasons why you broke up with each other, then you should weigh up if you can overcome these problems and save your relationship. If this is the case, then you can find impartial help and advice at places that offer relationship counselling. It is worth a shot as getting back together with your loved one is a very good remedy for a broken heart.
Sometimes though, a relationship ends and it is final. You might be feeling that you will never get over the pain, but in time you will feel better. The time after a painful breakup is a period of grieving. Allow yourself time to grieve for what you have lost; but then acknowledge it is time to move on.
This is a time for looking after yourself. You can take a holiday, or get away to catch up with family or friends you haven’t seen for a while. Change your daily routine. Your life will be different now so instead of approaching it with fear, grab this opportunity with both hands. With a positive attitude your new life for relationship and love could be just around the corner.
Sure, partners who meet when they are teenagers and are still together in their eighties are great. But there are other twosomes out there who may have made mistakes in their respective pasts, but have now found happiness again.
We change as people as we travel through the journey of life. Our partner also changes, and we have to both adapt to the change in our relationship if we are going to be able to stay together. If your relationship has ended because you have moved in different directions, then you may be happier with someone else anyway.
If you find that your heartbreak is overwhelming, please speak to someone. There are many places you can find good advice and help for dealing with a broken heart. Think about offering help to others who need it, as well. Assisting others such as those who are sick in hospital can help you take your mind off your own problems.
