I have read a book and one part of it got my attention. a certain person with much wisdom told a sorrowing woman that the best medicine for a broken heart is " to take a brush and get down on your knees and go to work. The best medicine for a man "is to get an ax and chop wood until physically tired". But of course this is not guaranteed to be a complete cure for heartaches, it does help to metigate such sufferings but what should be the best prescription for heartache? This would be for those who like to move on with their life including me.

Try to be around people who love you and care about you, take it one day at a time, go out with your friends and know that you will feel better one day.

that would be the best option and mostly are the best help but what if the people you consider who love you are not around and you feel like your all alone. That would be very worst, am i right? especially if your life is very complicated and you feel like nobodys there to support you.

Yes, that would be very hard to go through it by yourself or without someone who loves and cares about you. Can you call them on the phone? You could always talk to us too, we are here for you.

i guess what the wise person was trying to do is try to keep yourself busy so you'll forget about your heartache. only time wil heal all your wounds. the best thing to do i guess is to not think much about the guy or the moments you've shared. meet new people, get a new hobby, anything just to forget the guy.

Yes i did that, i make myself busy just to forget but its really hard to forget,i believe time will heal all the wounds but pain will still be there everytime i remember the the moments we shared and that really hurts. Yes im helping myself for now im more better than a year ago but i admit it still hurts and im having really hard time to move on.
