5 Ways to Heal a Hardened Heart

Having your heart broken is probably the worst feeling anyone can feel. It hurts even much more than physical pain.

When you break up with someone, it becomes harder to let new people into your life. You find it difficult to trust other people as you think that they will hurt your feelings, as well.

However, there are some ways which can help you to heal your broken heart faster. If you follow the steps listed below, you will realize that your heart is becoming softer and warmer and it will be easier for you to make new friends and even start new romantic relationships.

  1. You have to accept the fact that you are hurting. However, it doesn’t mean that it is ok for other people to hurt your feelings. What it means is that if you refuse to accept your pain, you will never move on. The first step to healing is coming to terms with the fact that you are suffering and you need to do something in order to fix it rather than sit around and pity yourself. If you need to cry, do it but don’t suppress your emotions as it would only get worse.
  2. Try to see things from different angles. You should evaluate what is happening to you objectively as only then you can fully understand your feelings and reactions. When we focus on our viewpoint only, we overlook the fact that because of our hardened hearts, we make other people suffer, too. If you decide to be around those who broke your heart, you will never heal. Therefore, in addition to seeing things from different perspectives, you also have to change something in your life.
  3. Don’t use experiences which happened in the past as an excuse for your actions. When you get into a new relationship, don’t compare it with your past ones. This means that you are actually stuck in the past and it doesn’t allow you to see new people who may actually be worth your time. In addition, if you make comparisons not only in your thoughts but also out loud, your partner will get tired of it and you both will end up being miserable and angry.
  4. Learn about your emotions. You should learn how to express anger and hurt in healthy ways. If you are desperate about a certain thing and lash out to other people, they will perceive you as a mean and angry person as they don’t know what you had to deal with in your past. Thus, you have to learn how to manage your outbursts so that other people won’t get hurt by you and you wouldn’t ruin your friendships.
  5. Believe that one day you will find your love again. After you get your heart broken, it is always difficult to imagine that one day you will love again. However, it is more than possible. Believe that you just need time to heal and when it’s over, you will be happy and maybe will find your true love.
