Twelve Remedies For Recovery from the Acute Pain of Heartbreak

1. Reach out to your friends so that losing this partner does not mean isolation or deprivation from human warmth. One of the things we miss most when we lose a partner, is that soft voice in the night, that person you share good news with, you connect with when you are just doing nothing much, parking your car, whatever. Get your best friend and other trusted friends on board right away; ask them to be there for you, so that you can be amongst friends and feel supported. If it is a situation where you must go ‘no contact’ with the person you had a relationship with, then friends who can act as mentors or buddies for those times when you find it hard to resist calling the person, are great …… and plus, you can return the favour to them if you ever need to. Breaking the habit of calling and being around the loved one is the key to this acutely painful early stage and if you do this well, you can make the time afterwards to look at what happened and retrieve any insights, but right now, you need to take care of yourself and breaking down isolation and loneliness, whilst keeping some solitude for deep recovery is essential.
