Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

A heartbreak or a fall out of a relationship is a saddening experience. There is a feeling of loss coupled with damage to self-esteem. But lots of people experience it at least once in life. Here are a few tips to cope with it.

Sitting or lying down all day at home will not help and in fact, worsen depression. It is time to interact with friends as much as possible. Treat yourself to a movie with friends, a dinner, a visit to nearby holiday spot. If these sound difficult, at least interact on phone. Indulge in your hobby which you enjoy. Share your thoughts with a close family member or friend. Get active physically. Join a gym, start cycling, or maybe dancing if you like.

Realize that it is better that it happened now rather than farther late in the relationship when you would have been more emotionally invested. It has been a while that you are used to being in a relationship. Do not be scared of being single for some time. It is worth enjoying too. Do not rush into your next relationship right away. Remember that time heals all heart trauma in a way that you emerge stronger and emotionally healthier out of it. If you feel that it is difficult to begin these activities, see a psychologist or psychiatrist. Sometimes an initial help is needed to get out of this cycle. Take care.
