I don’t know if I can call it a recipe, but whenever I had dealt with a heartbreak in the past, it didn’t go well. I would wallow while talking about how the person had done me wrong (but saying it to myself.)

It is not so easy to get over a heartbreak, well, depends on if you had cared about the person, and/or wanted the relationship to end. I tend to do more of listening to music while trying to avoid love songs. Deleting any reminders of the person and calling them a damn fool and some other choice words out loud. Or in my head if there are people around me. Okay, maybe that’s not a good thing.

I used to eat sweets more and listen to more music. I also learned years ago that it is a good thing to write down the bad things on paper and then burn it. It’s like releasing it into the Universe, letting go of the bad.

Finding other things to do instead of thinking about the person and what went wrong. Doing things that are healthy, like doing fun activities, read and read.

Get underneath someone else. Okay, I didn’t do that. And you shouldn’t either until you are ready, (or unless you just want to.) One thing I have learned now just thinking about it, and that is to never wallow in your sorrows for so long that you forget to live.

Thanks for reading.
