I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
~Henry David Thoreau
Isn’t being alone one of the worst aspects of heartbreak? How can being alone help you heal your broken heart?
There’s Nothing to Fear About Being Alone
Yes, being alone can actually help you when healing your broken heart. One of the major fears that people face after having their heart broken is the fear of being alone. Most people do not realize that there is nothing to fear about being alone.
This is now the time to explore how being alone is actually a time for you to heal your broken heart properly.
Get to Know Yourself Again
Use this time to get reacquainted with yourself. This is a time of self-discovery and exploration.
Rededicate your time to a hobby or pastime that you once loved but put aside for your relationship. If you did not have anything that you enjoyed doing with your time, find one.
Get in touch with your creative side. Use this newfound time to paint, draw, write poetry, compose music, write a novel or whatever creative outlet that you always wanted to try but were afraid to do. The sky is the limit. Your time should be focused on doing what you love to do. Your heart is in a fragile state, however, the time that you spend being alone can allow you to make tremendous strides in your healing if you use it wisely.
A New You With A New View
Build your self confidence. Your confidence is probably in the crapper after being dumped. Now is the time to rebuild your self-confidence by taking on small projects of accomplishment.
Exercise. Focus on creating a healthy body and mind. Your body is your temple. Often, we forget this when we fall in love and let ourselves go. Take up yoga or Tai Chi. Learn how to meditate. Use your spare time to create a strong body-mind connection that will support you in healing your broken heart.
Become the person you’ve always wanted to be. Reevaluate your life plan and make adjustments accordingly. What is something you’ve always wanted to accomplish but never had the guts to admit? Take this time to explore new avenues that will lead you to the place that you want to be.
All of these suggestions provided here will allow you to focus on something other than your broken heart or your ex. You need to move to first position in your life and being alone provides the room to do so.
~Here’s to your healing!
