Cut yourself off from the past
One theory is that when we are in love, the same areas in our brain are activated that are active in people addicted to psychoactive substances. After a breakup, our brain continues to demand the stimulant that was love. That’s why it’s so difficult for us to move on and forget….
The most important thing is to cut ourselves off from the past. Stop reminiscing, unraveling and thinking about the ended relationship or the person who left and left you. Only this will help heal the pain in your heart.
After a breakup, we very often idealize the former partner and our relationship. We only remember the pleasant, beautiful moments we spent together. We focus on how good we were, how much we had in common and how much we loved each other. We distort the memory and do not think rationally. What can we do to get over it? Think about the unpleasant moments and flaws of your relationship, recall the reasons for the breakup. This will help you shake things up and stop idealizing.
Analyzing the reasons for the breakup and thinking too much about why someone left you won’t help either. If you want to heal a broken heart, stop analyzing and pondering. Don’t waste time on it, accept someone’s decision and don’t try to influence it.
Time is the best medicine
A broken heart heals very slowly. A riddle in your heart may remain forever, but it will make you stronger. The best cure for a broken heart is simply time. If you consider this stage of your life closed, with time you will move on and stop suffering, and time will heal the wounds.
