How can you fix a broken heart?

You can't fix a broken heart. That's not a useful answer, I

know. A broken heart will heal itself. It is painful. One can

prolong or shorten the pain's duration and intensity. Obsessing

over the loss prolongs it, occupying your mind with other things

shortens it. Analogy; if one has a cut on one's hand, picking at

it, disturbing the flesh increases the pain and prolongs the

healing process. Covering the wound and occupying yourself with

other things will let the wound heal more quickly and with the

minimal amount of pain. It still takes time though.

Advice: Acknowledge that you're in pain, allow yourself to feel

the pain. Grieve the loss, but don't replay the break-up details.

Make a deal with yourself: allow yourself 20 minutes a day to feel

the loss and no more. Within days you will feel less and less

intensity. Clarity will come, you will see.
