What do you do when your heart starts hurting from memories?
That's ok... memories are good ... after sometime I am reminding myself reality...so I enjoy both memories n reality 🤩
I try and remind myself that what’s in the past is there - in the past. It’s not longer an attainable present.
Hope this helps!
I struggle with this one a lot. Tbh having a good cry is a good one for me. I muddle on and muddle on until I simply can’t anymore and have a wAiling good cry about it all. Half a box of tissues later…. 👃🏾💦 If the heart ache is about regret I promise you that you did the dead level best that you could. Living a life with no regret not only means living life to the fullest; it also means fully resolving regret
I hate to say this because I hated hearing it and I hate it even more now that I’m going through it and realizing it’s true but the only way to get over the pain is to go through it. Human’s instinctively pull away from pain but the only way we process it is by leaning in to it and experiencing it. Let ur heart hurt. Cry, scream, write bad/good poetry, talk to someone about how you feel, listen to sad songs, compile them in to a playlist so now your sadness has a soundtrack, do whatever it is you need to do as long as ur not avoiding your feelings. The more you avoid them the stronger and more damaging and powerful they become. It sucks but the only way out is through. I’m going through a break up too and it’s the worst. I’m around if you need me.
Try do something that you like 🤗 maybe a passion that makes you forget about those feelings. And little by little it Will go by itself . Its hurtfull ofc. But everything is babysteps🥰
Distraction is key. There is no shortcut to fixing a broken heart. A good idea is to distract yourself with cognitively demanding tasks as frequently as possible (ex: playing piano, team sports) until the heart mends itself. Eventually, it will calm down. For now, just ride the waves and try to make your experience smooth.
