Everyone has gotten dumped by someone they care about.  Then you are left with a broken heart.  How do you go on?  What will you do now that your love has left you feeling forlorn?

Here are some tips to getting over a broken heart.  At a time like this all you want to do is be alone to look over old pictures, play your song over and over while pathetically singing along, sporadically crying at different intervals, and thinking of what you could have done differently.

The first thing to do is to call some friends. Who better to lift you up than your friends.  They can take you out and cheer you up while occasionally telling you how much better you are without so and so and pointing out their various faults.  Your friends will have you laughing again in no time.

The next thing to do is get rid of everything that reminds you of your lost love. Box it up and put it away.  You cannot get over being dumped, if every time you look at your bed, you have the stuffed animal and picture of the certain someone who moved onto greener pastures.

Lose their phone number, for now. Don’t keep your ex love’s phone number with their picture next to it in your phone.  Delete it.  If at some point and time you are with a new love and your old love wants to be friends, then if you are ok with that put them back in.  Until then lose their number.

Have some “ME” time. Have some time to yourself.  But, not in your house.  Go out to the beach.  Go to dinner by yourself.  Read a good book.  Take a pottery class.  Meditate.  Just devote at least 6 hours a week to you.  Discover yourself as a single person.  When you are in a relationship sometimes you lose you.  Discover you again.

For all of you who have not been dumped yet, and don’t want to be anytime soon here are some tips to avoid having to get over a broken heart.  Listen.  Listen to what your significant other is saying.  Most relationships end with an argument of “You NEVER listen.”  So listen to your love.  They could be saying something important.

Keep the romance. Bringing home the occasional flowers or favorite chocolates is a good start.  Draw your love a bath.  Sprinkle rose pedals in it.  Whether it be a man or woman, everyone appreciates the little things.  Sometimes being romantic just includes doing the dishes.

Say I love you. These are the three most important words in the world.  Saying I love you especially when you love says it first is so critical.  If they say I love you and you say uh-huh.  That is not good.  Never throw away an I love you, it may be your last.

The same goes for kisses. We are not talking about tonsil wrestling.  We are talking about the little kisses in the store or on the way out.  If your love puckers and you don’t that is a bad deal.  They will think you don’t want to kiss them, find them attractive, ect.

The biggest thing to avoid ever is, NEVER EVER go to bed angry. If you have to see the sun come up together.  NEVER EVER go to bed angry.  You may not have the person there to say I’m sorry to in the morning.  They may leave in the night, or like one couple discovered their spouse died of a heart attack in the night.  He had no heart problems that they knew of and he was a young man.  She woke up and he was gone.  Death claimed him in the night and she never heard those words.  They went to bed angry and she has carried the guilt with her these many years.  Never remarrying awaiting the day when she can be with her beloved to say the words she has waited so many years to say.  “I’m sorry and I love you.”

Keeping the love will keep you from being dumped or having to get over getting dumped.  By doing the little things you will avoid the big things.  Treasure the love you have, and count your blessings.  People don’t do this enough.  They get caught up in this rat race we call life and forget the little things that are so important.
