But some people go beyond being heartbroken and develop an eating disorder, afraid to hold themselves accountable for feeling anything.

Breakups are difficult to handle because they are often caused by someone’s desire to be with someone else. And being with someone else always comes with risks. However, every one of us has gone through a heart broken feelings at some point in our lives. And, if we are honest, most of us have experienced them more than once.

When a person is heartbroken, they may do things that they would normally not do, such as giving up on their goals and changing their behaviors. They might also find themselves making decisions based on their depression, rather than taking advice from friends and family.

But most of us are not like this. Most of us want to get over the person who broke our heart as quickly as possible.

How to get over a broken heart?

Since every person is different, there is not one exact way to get over a broken heart. But there are some commonalities among those who have gotten over broken heart feeling.

People who have gotten over a broken heart tend to do so by:

Taking care of themselves.

Eating well and getting enough sleep are both important for emotional health.

Staying away from others.

Put yourself before anyone else.

Prioritize their needs.

Put your needs in a different place when you are heartbroken.

To handle this sad broken heart feeling, try these tips:

Examine your feelings. Instead of turning to food or your phone, which are both likely to lead to an unhealthy relationship with food, get out a journal and write down how you feel. Trust me, it works. Analyze your thought processes. When you are heartbroken, it is easy to think that you are a worthless person but in some cases, this might not be true.

Note down each piece of good news. There is something about writing down good news that feels good and helps you rise above your heartbreak. Focus on progress, not perfection. Learning to prioritize and manage your expectations is an important step toward feeling better. While perfection is a great thing to strive for, being a better person is more important then being perfect. Heartbroken feelings can come out of becoming a better partner , a better parent, a better friend, and a better person.

Start living again. Instead of being in a constant state of sadness, be excited about starting over and making new friends, learning new skills, and seeing yourself grow. Look forward to each day. One study found that people who had a positive view toward life overall had less time to feel depressed.

Despite how important good health is for emotional health, it is often the last thing people think about when they are grieving. From there, it is only one step to feeling better, and one step to getting back on track.
