Breaking up is Hard to Do…. (Part 11)

In my previous blog of this series, “breaking up is hard to do”, I discussed the psychological and physiological symptoms of a broken heart. In this concluding blog I will discuss ways to help heal a broken heart and recommendations on how to help avoid further broken hearts. How you cope with a heartbreak is determined by how you have been raised or nurtured. The pain will take time to heal, and it cannot be avoided. But once you are able to get out of that state of mind, how you move on from there, will be very crucial to your future relationships, especially if this was our...
