Getting Over It

Heartbreak is inevitable.

You can’t run from it. You can’t hide from it. It’s bound to happen at some point.

For me, personally, I can honestly say that I have cried over two men from heartbreak. One because he was so mean to me and constantly hurt my feelings and another because his behavior changed. Neither was healthy for me and my kids.

No matter what caused the heartbreak, it hurts. Whether you’re together a month, a year or ten years, how long should the pain last? How long should one be allowed to grieve?

I am not the only one who wonders. Thought Catalog and Your Tango have posts that also give some perspective on the subject.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Break-Up?

How Long Does It Take To Move On From A Breakup?

Being married to someone for over 5 years I was over him within the first year of marriage. It was that bad. My boyfriend of 1 1/2 years I was over within 6 months, and my last boyfriend, I haven’t yet been able to forget……*sigh*

So what’s the formula to getting over a relationship- someone who broke your heart? Is a rebound fling in order? Should I contemplate a Chocolate Bon Bon addiction? A vacation? Alcohol? Should I saddle up and get back on that dating horse again?

Heartbreak is different for everyone and different circumstances can call for creative measures…..

Which one worked for you?
