Have you broken up with someone? I don’t mean only your couple. The end of a long lasting friendship can be also hard to deal.
The emotions and the feelings of being alone, isolated from the rest of the world, depressed, etc. are hard to deal.
I will try to exchange with you, my readers my personal views on this subject and at the same time I would like to read your comments.
In this first part my advice is simple: don’t deny your feelings. The first step for healing is acceptance.
People can enter in self-denial of the situation. It is a defense strategy that can work for a while but at the end of the day the pain will be there.
Don’t pretend you don’t care about this person that is no longer with you. Accepting that it hurts you does not make you a weak person.
Of course, you don’t need to start sharing your feelings with the rest of the world. If you have someone of your entire confidence to share your views and ask him/her for advice or just to listen when you don’t feel good.
If you have to cry at some point, do it. Don’t feel ashamed of your feelings. They show that you cared and that you loved. That you have been hurt but you can also recover and learn.
