You Will Survive! Why Divorce and Heartbreak Doesn’t Kill Ya

A breakup doesn’t have to devastate. Follow these tips to help you bounce back.

They say that heartbreak can kill you. I say the first breakup didn’t put you into a grave, and neither will the next. No matter how much you loved (or love) your former significant other, or what caused your relationship to end, (cue Gloria Gaynor) you will survive!

Science is also on my side. According to a study, people who have been through a divorce are just as healthy as couples who are happily together. As a matter of fact, most of the divorced people in this study moved on and began new relationships. Some even remarried.

This is a perfect example of the power of the human spirit: we are resilient. We bounce back. It may not feel like that when you are in the trenches of heartbreak, but (cue that track again) you will survive!

If you need some breakup tips on how to truly be healthy and bounce back after a breakup, here is some advice:

Heal on your own

Moving on with someone else usually means you are substituting your ex with another. The baggage you carry will feel much heavier as you have yet to heal from the ending of a love affair. By no means should you cut yourself off from dating. Just take your time when frolicking in the dating pool. Depending on the how deeply your last relationship impacted your life, you may just want to be alone for a while. There is nothing wrong with that. It allows real time to heal and to get to know yourself.  Photo Credit: Flickr.com/LeeHaywood.
