    My boyfriend just recently broke up with me, and I'm heartbroken. What can be ways to feel better? Any ideas? (No negative feedback please).

    Go out and do anything and everything to keep your mind off it and go to the gym.

    Oh and be prepared for negative feedback too.

    Seek the company of friends and loved ones. Find activities that preoccupy you and that may even provide a cathartic release. That could be a new hobby or a challenging workout routine. I trained for an Ironman triathlon to help distract me from a bad breakup several years ago; that kind of thing isn't for everyone, but the point is that the physical exertion was a way for me to process a lot of emotion.

    At the end of the day, however, it just takes time, and you have to simply lean into the sadness and avoid letting it turn into anger or bitterness. The sadness will be a tsunami at first, but gradually it will turn into periodic waves of emotion, and then become little ripples of subtle reminders.

    Try to stay outdoors... Places like a scenic spot or a morning walk in a park, etc. Nature helps us in many ways.

    Ice cream actually does help! Haha that and just go out and do stuff. Go out to eat, go shopping, go on a hike, anything. Sitting at home makes it even worse.

    Just remember you will have sex again and it will be an exciting first encounter. Someone told me that the last time I got dumped and it actually helped. Gave me something to look forward to which took my mind off the hurt. Love is great but strange is exciting. Eh?

    No one ever really gets over a broken heart; there was something in you that he found attractive and vice versa, and you guys shared good times because of it. Why would you want to get over that?
    Things change, and time will see you through.
    It's up to you wether it's worth sticking it out and make it work or pack up your baggage and carry on.
    If it's worth fighting for, do something.
    You know what's best for you.

    Moving on SUCKS when a relationship ends but if it's 100% done, you have to allow yourself to let go and actually follow through with that. Don't beat yourself up by hanging on to the chance that it somehow might work out. Open yourself up to new possibilities and find something else fulfilling with someone else.

    Spend time with your family or friends. Go out and have fun. You can also go on a travel, on a hike, or on a bike ride, that always makes me happy icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh yes, and I agree with Erik101, the only true way to get over a broken heart is time.


    Good luck! ;)

    I just got dumped too. Definitely feel your pain. Been doing a LOT of reading, and aimlessly driving around country roads. Trying to focus on my breath, and not let myself fall into all sorts of negative thinking (so. hard. to. do.).

    Here's to the hope that each day gets a little bit easier.

    ∆∆∆ You stole my comment! icon_smile.gif I was about to say the same thing. People forget how much nature soothes and heals us. Trouble is, it never feels like it's going to help until you actually force yourself to get out there. Even a walk in the park is helpful.

    Work out, look better, feel better.
    Work for yourself, rise above it.

    Make damn sure, and I mean this, make damn fucking sure he regrets leaving you.
    Get ripped.

    That's my way.
