Heart break is inevitable, but let yourself feel it and not for too long. Slowly adjust back to your routine. You'll never be able to forget it, but you will be able to heal. You won't feel like this every day for the rest of your life, remember that.

To let it break your heart. Then wipe away all your tears and build a new heart centered around you with loads of love in it.

Dear, you cannot stop heartbreak. but, you can minimize the pain. It is like a maze. You need to find your way out. Try doing things you haven't done for a while, or keep yourself busy. By that thing, you can divert your thinking unto the pain.

You have to gradually try to move on, even though it sounds corny and cliche there are plenty of fish out in the sea there, so you will find the right guy/girl, no worries! And you have to remember that even though the heartbreaks there now and its hurting a lot now, time will heal it. Plus, you have to remember the reason why you two broke up in the first place, so just stay positive :)

Sweety there is no way to do that :) and that's a good thing. honestly, can you remember a single heartbreak that didn't teach you something good? in the end when you meet the right person you'll realize that all the lessons you've learnt help you be a good partner :) keep your chin up and bear the heartbreak. they're a gift not a curse :)

Don't open up to people so quickly... Be sure that the person you want to be in a relationship is who and what they say they are. Become friends with them first for a while until you see the bad things in them. Everyone has bad about them because nobody is perfect.

Emotions are natural and not wiae to be wipes out from our hearts. The best is to experience it in its own nature and be more knowledgable of its existence..

You should take this time to focus on yourself and take from this experience. It will take some time to stop hurting, but it is an opportunity to learn and to grow as a person. Make this a 'you' time and do not be afraid to express how you're feeling. Releasing what's bottled up inside is the first step to the best 'you' you can be.

There are tons of things you can do that might help. Simply just being around people who you love is one of many, friends, family, whoever it might be. Try distracting yourself from the thoughts about that person that may come to mind. And in doing that, make sure you are doing things that you enjoy and make you happy. Focus on yourself for a bit. Heartbreak takes time but you will get through it :) also do not beat yourself up if you feel like you are taking awhile to heal, everyone is different in their healing process. You got this

You cant stop heartbrake but over time heal it, by just doing things you enjoy a heartbrake wont last forever and that's a given. Stoping one from happening is impossible unless you know something your in can cause one then its solvable

Acknowledge your heartbreak. Feel the emotions as they come to you and express them, process them. Unfortunately, you can't put it off or distract yourself from it. It must be faced, addressed, and then you will find your way to healing.

Meet more people. Think about the bad times you lived together. Think about meeting the real love of you life.

Being practical and analytical is one essential point... To put it more clearly, avoiding to make promises and avoiding to expect too much from others... Thats it for the most part. :).

Remembering that it's only temporary can help. Surround yourself with people you love and care about who can make you laugh. The reason for your heartbreak isn't going to help with that. Go to friends and family. They're there for you!

Never date a person to get over someone else, it's ok to have fun, but don't forget that other people has feelings too ^_^

There is no easy way to stop heartbreak, as much as we all wish there was a cure there isn't. There is ways you can help yourself however. It is important to keep yourself busy, have lots to look forward to, spend time with friends and do all of the things that you enjoy and make you who you are. Always remember, you will fall in love again no matter how crazy that may seem right now.

Heartbreak is something you can't prevent or stop, you will need to know ways to deal and cope with it instead when it happens.

There's no way to stop a heartbreak, but there are things you can do to help your heart heal again. Take care of yourself, and put yourself first. Focus on YOU and what makes you happy (outside of your old relationship) and spend time with your family and friends. Have faith that everything was meant to be, and that the best is yet to come.

Focus on a goal that isn't relationship related. Maybe finish reading a book, help a friend, learn a new skill.

In my view, it's to keep busy. Immerse yourself in activities - join a club, make an effort to catch up with friends you may not see that much. You can move on - and you will find someone when the time is right.

The best way to stop heartbreak? Treat yourself. I think one of the worst things about heartbreak is that you start to doubt your self worth because the person you love doesn't love you back. And you start to wonder why. To ask why you weren't enough and what is wrong with you. So my solution is to learn to love yourself all over again - every part, every detail, every flaw. Because in the end you're are the only person that has to live with you. And yes, this is cliche, but I truly believe that if you love yourself, someday, with time, you'll be fine, because you know your self-worth
