15 Ways To Get Over A Broken Heart

15 Practical Steps To Help You Get Over A Broken Heart

I want to blog on a subject almost every one of us at one time or another will have to face, and that is how to deal with a broken getting over a broken heartheart. On my radio show, Dawson McAllister Live, the number one topic people want to talk about is how to get over a heart break with their boyfriend/girlfriend or how to win back their bf/gf.

If you haven’t had a broken heart yet, you will someday. Maybe you will be able to go through the dating relationships until you find the right one without getting hurt. But in the end, someday someone might break your heart. Maybe one of your children or someone else in your family. If you have the capacity to love, and I’m sure you do, then you also have the capacity to be hurt.

Specifically let’s talk about a broken heart caused by a bf/gf. So what causes a broken heart?

Your Heart is Broken When…

  • You find out your bf/gf is cheating on you with your best friend.
  • That sick feeling you feel when your bf/gf becomes more and more distant and you know something is wrong.
  • That frustration and hurt you feel when the fights with your bf/gf become more frequent and more destructive.
  • The lightning bolt shock that takes your breath away when the person you love tells you they don’t want to date you anymore.
  • The humiliating feeling that comes over you when you hear the one you love say, “Let’s just be friends.”

    You are most certainly not alone. I had an amazing relationship with an amazing guy who out of the blue decided to end the relationship. My heart physically hurt. I spent every night for months crying myself to sleep. I tried so hard not to contact him, but at times I couldn’t stop myself and it only made things worse when I called or texted. I would feel the pain start all over again. It came down to the fact that he didn’t communicate well and had let things bottle up and just ended the relationship rather than talk about his feelings. I think about him every single day. I try not to dwell on the situation but inevitably I end up somehow being reminded of him. I love him with all my heart and I don’t think it would be fair to any man to get into a relationship when I know that my heart will always be with someone else. So often I wish I had someone close to me that I could just talk to, not be romantically involved, but someone I feel comfortable talking to and someone who understands what it’s like. I find that almost all men I meet don’t want to be friends, they want more. It’s very frustrating and I feel so alone sometimes. I wish you all the best in the world and I hope you find happiness.
