5 Ways A Heartbreak Helps Us Create A Stronger Self

5 Ways A Heartbreak Helps Us Create A Stronger Self

Going through a heartbreak creates a stronger self, and anybody who has gotten their heart broken, even once in their lives will agree. 

These days love and emotions have almost lost their actual charm, thereby resulting in so many weak emotional and mental relationships. And then follows the heartbreak, which is real torture for those who took every moment as worthy and kept them as cherishable memories.

Attachment, habit, emotions, love, concern, expectation, and hope are some of the few demons that follow you with haunting questions, making the situation worse.

I gave my 100% then why did this happen to me?

Did I make the right decision? This question can haunt you every moment of every day. Romeo Juliet seems to be a sixteenth-century fiction that once probably lured you into a daydream about the knight in the shining armor. Nothing like that is remotely seen now. We wonder how successful love stories play out today. Does the word love exist in reality? Or is it mere infatuation that is lead by compromises to settle down?

The broken heart feeling can be categorized under one of the most negative vibes. Every session of counseling from friends seems to be the most ridiculous act, messing up your mind and thereby your life even more.

Studies conducted by the researcher Ty Tashiro show that heartbreak changes you as a person but how you get changed depends on the way you deal with it and overcome it. It makes a person way more open-minded and stronger.

Quickly you are able to transform your energies, from frustration, rage, grief (negative) to inspiration and motivation, (positive) and hence are one of those people who have experienced the dark as well as the brighter parts of love.

Heartbreaks are indeed necessary to build up into a stronger self.

5 Ways A Heartbreak Helps Us Create A Stronger Self

5 Ways Heartbreaks Creates A Stronger Self

1.  It helps you create a relationship with yourself, look within and intensify this bond.

Since this is the time when you want to be alone, it gives you the best opportunity to have a session of self-introspection and hence know your worth. It is painful to lose your favorite person but there is a universe that loves you beyond and unconditionally. Heartbreak helps you learn this lesson in life. The best person to love is oneself. For when you love yourself you look within and find new avenues that you passionately love, but could have ignored before due to your obsession with an individual.

2. It makes you self-reliant.

You become selective before trusting people. Blind trusting is out of the list. You learn to expect only from yourself because failed expectations hurt a lot. So it is in a way leading to a more mature person which is, a mature ‘You’.

It has also been reported that people perform well under the influence of emotional trauma. We can call it the best way to bring out your hidden talent.

So we suppress it and keep it hidden away from the world, even our loved ones. But we know deep within us, within its confines, our dark side grows silently, patiently looking for a way out.

Ways Tame And Silence Your Inner Critic

“Turn down the volume of your negative inner voice and create a nurturing inner voice to take it’s place. When you make a mistake, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move on instead of obsessing about it. Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you.” ― Beverly Engel. This one quote perfectly shows why it's important to silence your inner critic.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your inner monologue? You know, the voice that can motivate you to press on or stop you dead in your tracks and make you feel a few inches tall.

It is the same voice that attempts to protect you from shame, embarrassment, or making a mistake. If not tamed and regulated, this voice morphs into an intense critic, one that can sabotage and stagnate if it gains too much power.
