A broken heart or unrequited love can leave you feeling down and blue. In fact, it can turn your world upside down. It will take time for your heart to mend, but in the meantime, you must take small steps in the right direction. Here’s what to do next time you feel lovesick.
Get Out Of Bed
You may feel like you can sleep for days, but the longer you lay there crying into your pillow the longer it will take to recover. Get up, showered, and dressed—and hang with friends and family who will help distract you from your broken heart.
Identify What You Are Grateful For
I know, it may not seem like there is anything to be grateful for now that you are alone—but there is still more to appreciate than not. Begin looking for the collateral beauty, the silver linings, and the smallest of joys in everyday things.
Remember Your Self-Worth
You deserve someone who loves you just the way you are, so while you may feel lovesick now—the one who let you go is clearly not your one. Now that you are free of them, you are one step closer to Mr. or Mrs. Right.
You may have to fake putting on a smiling face for a while, but at some point, you will smile, laugh, and love again.
