Accept your emotions. You might feel a range of emotions after your breakup, everything from sadness to relief to anger to loneliness. Remember, “There is no right way to feel when you have a broken heart,” Steinorth said. But the key is to accept and feel your feelings. Don’t fight them, she said. Often we spend more energy (and experience more heartache) when we try to dodge our feelings. Feeling your emotions helps you process them healthfully – and usually more quickly.
