Why Being Heartbroken Sucks

I'm pretty sure we've all been there at some point - things are going great with a guy and you think that maybe, just maybe, he could be the one for you, but sometimes things fall apart and you're left heartbroken - even it wasn't a bad breakup, it doesn't stop it hurting. Here's the worst things about it...

1. you doubt your self-worth

Someone might break up with you not because you did anything wrong, but simply because there's just something missing for them. Despite this, you still question whether there's something wrong with you or if you just weren't good enough - don't go down this path, it won't lead anywhere good.

2. you can't concentrate

You can't concentrate on work, you may not be able to eat or sleep properly and this is really tough because it means you're exhausted. Try not to sit on your own for too long, even just go and hang out with your friends for a while because distractions do help a little.

3. the emotional pain

There's this constant ache inside you - it's not physical but it just hurts so much and this is one of the worst things about heartbreak. The pain does ease, but it does take time and you just need to do your best to be strong and get through it.


Whether it's something you see on the TV, seeing a restaurant you ate at one or even if you see a car the same as theirs on the street, there's always things that remind you of them. As hard as it may be, maybe unfollow them on social media for a while to give yourself time to recover.

5. you wonder if you'll ever find anyone else

You may have thought this person was The One so when it ends you're devastated and don't think that there'll be anyone else who you'll find who makes you feel the way they did. As clichéd as it sounds, there are plenty of other fish in the sea so don't give up hope.

6. you feel like you'll never get over it

In the midst of your heartbreak it can feel like there's no light at the end of the tunnel and you feel like you'll never be able to move on. These things do take time, but think of all the challenges you've got over in the past - you will eventually be able to move forward and be happy again.

7. there's a hole

This person was a big part of your life. You'll have texted and called regularly, hung out with them and slept with them and when all of that stops, there is a massive gaping hole and it hurts like hell. Remember though, that this hole isn't irreparable and you'll find something or someone else to fill it with in time.

Being heartbroken is a horrible feeling and having been there myself I know how hard it can be. The only thing you can do is try your best to stay positive, be grateful for the good times you had with this person and try and look towards a brighter future.
