When your heart breaks, what do you do?

When the heart breaks it's not easy. I should know, I've had my share of heart breaks including a divorce. For me exercise seems to be the number one thing that gets me through a heart break. This isn't an easy thing because my most recent heart break has made me lose interest in a lot of things. That's part of the reason why I haven't been posting much on here lately. What do you do to help a broken heart? Have you ever had your heart broken?

I had, before my marriage and the only thing I do is to exercise like what you did, I spend much time on brisk walking instead of 30 minutes, I make it an hour.

I like riding my exercise bike. Sometimes it's not easy to be motivated to do it but once you do the feeling afterwards is amazing.

I am still single but had few boyfriends. I just spent most of my time with good friends.

Spending time with friends is always good. I wish I was able to hang out with mine more.

its never really that easy.. my heart has been broken several times and it helped me to be stronger and more mature in handling it. once i let go of the man, it means mo turning back. i learned to move on positively and quickly. also, i always pray for a praceful mind and a happy heart. God never fail to make me happy. its a good thing that you found a way (exercising) to divert your attention. keep it up. and smile..

It's amazing how when going through it you think you can't survive but once you make it through it you come out stronger.

@Bellatricks i used to write my emotions when i was a teenager after a sad break up and reading them now makes me irksome. its hard at first but when we put our mind and heart to getting better, it'll happen in no time.

My heart had been broken several times. It is deeply scarred and severely wounded. I do a lot of crying when i am alone but act normal when in front of other people.

I strangely enough didn't cry this much this time around. I guess it's because I was more angry about it than sad.

@Bellatricks Talking about your anger or writing about it will help you get over it faster.

Yes. I force myself to move on fast and keep myself busy.

Yes, making yourself be busy is great for getting over pretty much anything it seems.

That's mainly what I did after my divorce, just constant exercise.

I agree with you there, exercise is the best option to release your stress and being upset. well, i had disappointments in the past, but back then I actually just ate and watch some anime. maybe some day I will move on and find another one that's best for me.

No heart breaks here but I think yoga can be good means meditation. It will give you some relief. Also spend time with your loved ones and dear friends and share everything with them. When you share happiness, it multiplies and when you share sorrows, it decreases. It will loose some burden. Even cry. Yes. According recent study, it has been proved that cry makes you feel better and relax due to some stress busting hormone release.

I usually talk to God (not praying just talk) and pour everything out to him. For some reason it makes me feel better. I learned a long time ago that even though God doesn't respond verbally, He seems do things for me to get better, it is much better to talk to Him than to tell everything to another person, cause it only disappoints me more when they say they understand but really don't and worse they use what you tell them against you.

It's not an easy thing to go through and glad to hear you have a positive outlet to relieve the stress.
