Breakup grief and healing a broken heart

But My Pain is Different

Just as no two snowflakes are alike, no two breakups are alike, and no two people feel the same grief, or feel the pain and hurt in the same way when they break up.

Grief is very personal, but it is almost always dependent on our attitude towards it - as explained in the following excerpt from the ebook, 'How to get Over a Breakup':

Oh, those agonizing first days after a break up. Oh argh! We keep thinking we will wake up and this will all just go away! And when we find it doesn't–then we keep thinking we just want to go to sleep and never wake up. "How can I go on? And why should I want to? My world is gone! My reason for living...!" Remember those consuming thoughts of hopelessness?

I truly believe your attitude is one of your most overlooked secrets to a full recovery. Attitude is simply a matter of choosing how you will respond to any given situation. Life is constantly asking questions of you, and your responses are all-important. By choosing to change your negative approach to the break up, and replacing it with a positive, healthy attitude about life, your suffering, the past, the future, and your new–yet to be experienced–relationships, you can actually control the quality of the peace and serenity that can be found in any break up or divorce.

"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the
thing itself but to your own estimate of it;
and this you have the power to revoke at any moment."
--Marcus Aurelius

The way you interpret or see the break up depends largely on your attitude toward it. You may choose to focus on the negative aspects of it, anticipating the worst, or you may choose to look at it as a source of peace from months of strain, and an opportunity to grow personally and improve your place in life. Sadly though, most of the time we interpret it through a negative standing, and this causes us much hurt and pain.
