You need to figure out what you'll personally be vulnerable to. In your case, is getting over someone easier or harder for you?

How do you deal with breakups? And what are some solutions you can so that you can start healing from heartbreak and start moving on?

Here are 4 common things that happen to you after a breakup, and what you can do to heal your broken heart.

1. You keep thinking about your ex.

After breaking up, most of us make the mistake of indulging in activities that have a strong presence of our ex. This leads to major issues when you’re making an attempt to get rid of the thoughts related to your ex.


If you keep thinking about your ex all the time, you’ll end up living in the past, and that could mean that you’re not in a position to move ahead. It is possible that your ex has already moved on and if you do not move on, you’ll be at a loss. You’ll be the one suffering in the end, and there is nothing you’d be able to do about it later on.

Time and opportunities lost will not come back to you. So, be smart and make sure that you do not keep thinking about your ex all the time.

2. You stop eating.

If you stop eating food, you should not think that it will create a magical spell around you and your ex will reappear in front of you, pleading to take them back. This is not going to happen. However, it will have an impact on your health and you’ll be the one suffering the consequences of the same.

Your life will be a living mess, and you need to be sure that you do not force yourself to stop eating food. Food is necessary for you and you need it to live a healthy life. A breakup should not ruin your life or give you the negative opportunity to ruin your life.

3. You neglect other areas of your life.

This is also an issue that is seen in a number of breakup cases. People stop thinking about their routine, and it creates a negative impact on them. This forces them to miss out on opportunities that are related to their work and health.

In a number of cases, even family matters are affected because we stop caring about it.

In such situations, you need to remind yourself that you’re still alive and there’s no need for you to cry about a person who does not care about you or has never cared about you.

With this, we hope you’ll be back to your regular routine at the earliest and be happy with the same.


4. You get angry more often.

You’re going through a breakup and it is quite obvious that you might be sad and disappointed with the same. However, when you start taking out your anger, frustration, and irritation on someone else you know, you’ll end up losing yet another relationship and that is not good for you.

You need to be careful with this because once you dent other relationships after your breakup; it will be difficult for you to patch up with everyone. This is an important point to keep in mind and pay close attention to.
