It sounds like you're feeling really sad. Take it step by step and day by day. I know how hard breakups can be, and it's important to take care of yourself in hard times.
Heartbreak is hard. It will take time to get over, but the saying "time heals all wounds" really is true. Take some time for yourself, do the things you enjoy and just try to relax. Breaking up with someone is one of the most stessful things we can go through as humans but it's not the end of the world, it's all down to us as individuals how we choose to handle it. Some people don't handle it well and others handle it greatly, its truly your choice in how you decide to handle this situation.
Heartache is never easy to deal with. Put trust in yourself and know that some things aren't meant to be. Your health and wellbeing is important above all else, so let time heal what it needs to. Shoot me a message if you want to chat! Remember that you are strong and loved, and that there will be more people to connect with and make memories with. Cherish the good memories, but don't hold onto them to the point where it is hurting you. I believe in your strength and I know you will be able to overcome this challenge. You will find joy, so let life take you along
Coping with a break up is a personal experience, everybody has different methods of dealing with them that benefit themselves. It is therefore important to try out new things and see how you feel after you have done them. For example, some people turn to physical exercise, some people take up journaling and find solstice in self-reflection. One thing that stays constant with most people in the same situation is the impact of time on your healing. With time you will begin to feel better and provide yourself the closure you need in order to heal from the situation and be able to open your heart again to another.
