The pain of heartbreak can be extremely difficult to bear. You have become so used to this person and have shared so much with them that the next day you will be lost. It’s enough to send anyone into the arms of a rebound in an effort to feel safe and secure or repair a bruised ego. If you want to avoid rebounding, you have to ask yourself, “Did I brake myself?”
Far from just being Demi Lovato’s lyrics, giving your heart a break can do wonders for your mental health in the long run. True healing requires reflection and is often accompanied by solitude. This doesn’t mean that you can’t reach out to your friends or family for emotional support. It just means that starting new romantic relationships during this time is not ideal. Think of it this way: You can’t eat on a broken pot. You have to build it back up before it can take the weight of more food. In the same way, you can’t build a new relationship on a broken heart. It needs time to heal. If you didn’t give yourself time to heal before jumping into another relationship, it could be a sign that you moved on too quickly without doing the necessary work.
