Healing A Broken Heart With Hope Healing a broken heart isn’t something that can happen overnight. Unfortunately, there’s no magic wand you or anyone can wave to make you feel better. But there are a few things you can do to make healing a broken heart a little faster and easier. Surround yourself with people who have a positive attitude. The people you hang out with have a lot to do with your general level of happiness and your state of mind. This holds true every day of your life, not just when you’re heartbroken over a breakup. If you spend your time with very intelligent people who have thoughtprovoking conversations, you’ll tend to use your brain more, too. If you spend time with people who practice bad habits like smoking or drug use, or even eating foods that are unhealthy, you’re more likely to do those things. So if you spend your time with people who feel like love is only for a chosen few and that all men or women are faithless, you might start to adopt those attitudes. If your best friends are pessimists or always depressed, you’re setting yourself up to adopt those same feelings. Surrounding yourself with positive people every day can help lift your spirits and make you a more positive, hopeful person. This is especially important when you’re working on healing a broken heart. If everyone around you is a downer, they may try to help you heal but they’ll do it in a negative way. “He was probably cheating on you anyway.” “He was a loser.” “He was holding you back.” Even though they mean these things to be helpful, all that negativity makes an impact. But positive people will offer suggestions and support in a different way. “There’s something better waiting for you.” “Now you can do that thing you wanted to do but couldn’t.” “You have so much to offer someone else.” Support like that is just better for your overall mood than support springing from a negative outlook. And positive people are just more hopeful in general, about everything. Instead of fretting about not doing well at something, they realize that failure is possible but choose to focus their energies on the hope of success. This is one of the key to success in life—believing that it’s possible. By spending more time with hopeful, positive people when healing a broken heart, you can adopt those bright attitudes in every aspect of your life. Not only will the hope you’ll start to feel help your heart to heal, but you can see improvements in all of your relationships. When you learn to look for the positive in every situation instead of dwelling on the negative, you’ll find that you’re more open to possibilities than ever before. You’ll start to expect good things, which paves the way for them to happen. When healing a broken heart, not only can hope help it happen, it can help prepare you to enjoy a new relationship that’s bound to be better that the old one!
