How to Heal From Heartbreak
It can be difficult to heal from heartbreak. In today’s video, I share 5 steps to begin the healing process so you can create the love you deserve!
Heartbreak is similar to drug withdrawal. Don’t just take my word for it. Scientific studies have shown that just seeing a picture of your ex, dopamine is released, which gives you that giddy feeling inside. Unfortunately, it’s the same brain region as the one associated with drug addiction.
There are many other chemicals released when we’re in love that make us feel amazing. These chemicals can prevent us from seeing red flags, which is why we end up in these toxic relationships to begin with!
After a breakup, the brain, which was chemically dependent on that hit of dopamine, is now deprived. That’s why it can be difficult to eat and sleep, and it’s why you can obsess about your ex. But, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore…
How can you heal from heartbreak?
In this video, I share tips on how to heal from heartbreak, based on a podcast episode with Samantha Burns. You can find that episode here.
Start with these 5 steps:
- Adapt a 90 day no-contact rule.
- Practice self-care.
- Figure out who you are now.
- Identify new goals and interests.
- Understand how your early childhood interactions with your caregiver influences who you date/feel comfortable with. Learn your attachment style.
When to date again?
It’s not about waiting a specific amount of time, but about the love lessons you learn through the self-reflective work you do to heal from your breakup. This inner work will help you attract in the right partner. Look for someone who aligns with your core values.
When you date again, please do it with thought and purpose. Learn about yourself through every date. Remove the pressure of having to find a life partner.
Breakups disrupt the future you had planned. But they also open you up to a brand new future with the right partner!
