Trying to cope with heartbreak?

14.06.2024 | Radha Kesavaram

Heartbreak. Breakup. Rejection. The pain is too much to bear, and no hope exists. 
Stuck in a never-ending whirlwind of deeply distressing thoughts and feelings, the world  
becomes even more dark, terrifying, and life comes to a standstill. 
Is there hope? 
Let’s find out by -  

Understanding the overwhelming emotions 

These can include feeling like shame and guilt. Once you sit with these overwhelming emotions and understand them better, it can pave the way for healing. You can learn the messages they carry and begin to heal better.  

Recognizing, understanding, and validating your needs 

Your needs are valid. Take this opportunity to reconnect with yourself. To understand yourself and your needs better so they can be addressed healthily. 

Seeking help and support 

Open up to your close friends and seek help from reliable professionals. With adequate help, this tough time may not seem as challenging as it is now.  

Avoiding isolation  

The intensity of your distress might make it tempting to isolate yourself or indulge in harmful acts. This can be a hurdle in your journey toward coping. Avoiding this can give you more space to practice healthy coping mechanisms.  

Believing that challenges can be opportunities in disguise 

 
At the face of it, what seems like an end can pave the way for better, healthier, and more fulfilling experiences and relationships.  

PAIN stands for  

 
Pay  
Attention  
Inward  
Now  
 
A beautiful future awaits. Take the first step, and the rest will follow.
