Heartbreak? Here’s how you can deal with it


Billy Ray Cyrus put it well with ‘Achy Breaky Heart’. The song explains about how you can do anything you want to me, but … ‘don’t tell my heart, my achy breaky heart, I just don’t think it’d understand’. The heart above all is delicate. How we do things to protect it from being hurt! But sometimes, heartbreak can seem inevitable with the blind love we jump into. Given this scenario, let us have a look at some ways we can deal with heartbreak.

Stay optimistic

The common conception of the half empty-half full glass is a great way to look at heartbreak. When you’re suffering from heartbreak, learn to look at the positive things you’ve gained from the relationship. Look at the bright side, you now have time for yourself, you have time to reflect on your goals, you have time for family and friends.

Stay away

If there’s no reason or emotion left, then try your best to stay away as much as possible. Staying away will make your heart let go easier.


Holding a grudge is like consuming poison and expecting someone else to die. Developing a grudge against someone for heartbreak is only going to make you suffer. Forgiving someone who has broken your heart is a great virtue. Prove your strength by forgiveness. This is probably the best way to deal with heartbreak.


When you realise that life is all about constantly learning and improving, then heartbreak will not seem like the end of the world. Learn from your mistakes. It builds on your personality. Leave the sympathy aside and be reasonable.

Lean on your friends

At the time of heartbreak, a great avenue to vent out frustration can be with friends. Friends will be there for you at a time like this, and if those friends are worth it, they will do all they can to cheer you up.

Give it time

Do not expect heartbreak to fade away in no time. It is like an open wound. Let things heal slowly with time. But not dwelling on itwill help it heal without hurting. Just like a wound, the more you poke it, the longer it takes to heal!
