7 STEPS TO HEAL A BROKEN HEART

Chamin Ajjan

“Breaking Up Is Hard To Do” is not just a hit song from the 1960s, it is a fact. Anyone who has gone through a break up knows that a broken heart can be difficult to mend. This universal emotional response to the sudden, unexpected or unwanted loss of love is often characterized by an intense longing, hurt and/or desire for an ex or unrequited love. And it can hurt like hell. For some, it feels like their whole world is caving in on them. And in many cases, because the pain is so great and the path to mending it seems so daunting, people avoid healing their broken heart. This avoidance can lead to many unwanted side effects including but not limited to greater internal conflict, complicated emotional responses, withdrawal and difficulty in future relationships.

So, how do you heal a broken heart? Here are a few tips I have picked up in my training, clinical experiences and late night calls with girlfriends and family members.

3 PROVEN WAYS TO RECONNECT WHEN YOU’RE DISCONNECTED FROM YOUR PARTNER

Kyle Benson

What can you do right now to make your relationship more romantic?

You could get your wife a diamond necklace. Or maybe you could buy her the Mercedes dream car she’s always wanted.

Sounds like a good idea, right?

But let’s suppose that you haven’t asked your wife a question in five years, so you fail at Love Maps.

Or while you are out on a double date with friends and your wife starts telling a story, you say, “that’s a good story, but you always tell it wrong. Let me tell it.”

So you fail at showing her fondness and admiration.

Later that night she excitedly plops down next to you on the couch and shows you a picture of a romantic getaway in Italy.

7 Reasons Why Empathy Is Important in a Relationship

7 Reasons Why Empathy Is Important in a Relationship

7 REASONS WHY EMPATHY IS IMPORTANT IN A RELATIONSHIP

Lianne Choo

Empathy is one of the most important abilities that help people understand each other. So why is it even more important in your relationship?

It is not uncommon to disagree with another person’s views. Be it politics, religion, or something as silly as whether you should be using paper or plastic at the supermarket. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone. However, it is very important to practice empathy if you want to foster lasting relationships with those around you.

So what exactly is empathy? Not to be confused with sympathy, which is feeling sorrow for someone else’s misfortune, empathy is being able to connect with and understand the feelings of another. In a nutshell, it is putting yourself in another person’s shoes and not freaking out about it.

Whether with your friends, family members, kids, neighbors, colleagues or your favorite Starbucks barista, empathy is very important when it comes to building lasting relationships with others. The most important person you should be empathizing with is, of course, your partner. If you can’t connect with the most important person in your life, then who can you connect with?

LOVE IS PATIENT LOVE IS KIND: 14 RULES TO EXPERIENCE TRUE LOVE

Julie Keating

Love is patient love is kind stems from the Bible. But anyone who has heard it has probably wondered how to truly love someone for better or worse.

Who hasn’t sat at a wedding and heard the reading that begins, “love is patient, love is kind” and thought to themselves that they could be a better person to their mate?

We would all like to be perfect human beings, but the problem is that we can’t always be. Except for Mother Teresa and a couple of other saints, we are all a product of human nature, which is not always patient, nor is it always kind.

Samantha Ann

Cell phones are great but can also create turmoil for relationships. These are the cell phone rules every couple has to follow for a healthy relationship.

Since cell phones have become a basic human need, they have caused countless suspicions, fights, and even breakups for many couples. Although it would be wonderful to not need any cell phone rules every couple has to follow, they can be necessary and truly helpful.
