Broken Heart Cures

Recently on reddit, a man posted a straightforward question: ” What’s the very best medicine for a broken heart ?” He wanted advice, after apparently getting rejected for prom.
It appears like typical senior high school stuff, but alternatively, if you’ve ever experienced it, even a senior high school breakup or rejection can feel just like it is the end of the planet.
What’s equally interesting though, may be the sort of advice he got. It ranged from the crass (check out a strip club and ensure it is rain) to the philosophical. Here are some is best tips from that list for fixing a broken heart. Regardless that in this instance they’re for a man, they’re pretty universal. We’ve saved the very best for last.
“I say this constantly, but nobody believes me.
Horror games are excellent for battling depression.
And you’re right, that does sound crazy. But I guarantee they help a whole lot.
Fear can be an all-consuming emotion. It is a natural reaction that redirects your brain to the threat completely. That is great, because getting the mind from your broken heart is really a big step.
Accomplishing things releases chemicals in the human brain that also fight depression. Many people already resort to video gaming because they just like the feeling of accomplishment. However, horror games do that tenfold. Every level is you overcoming your fears and pushing through everything you thought you won’t ever could. Huge amounts of achievement = quicker recovery.
Horror games more often than not have an incredible story in it. Replaying the games to get and understand the story offers you renewed sense of purpose, and really passes amount of time in a fun way.
I strongly think that horror games will be the way to go. I really like the genre and desire to view it grow, and I’d like other people to understand the ironically therapeutic ability they will have. Go scare yourself silly!” – ASmileOnTop
Probably Best JUST FORGET ABOUT These…
“Sht on her behalf mother’s lawn. This is simply not a euphemism. SHT ON HER BEHALF MOTHER’S LAWN!” – sexualSAVANT (With a name like this…)
“Eating one cracker, in the center of the night. Just one single.
Edit: To clarify, one cracker of the “crackers and cheese” vein. My colleagues recommend Ritz, but emotional-cardiovascular injury is not actually my department therefore i am unable to comment.” – DoctorJohnZoidbergMD The real Zoidberg?
“Hookers and blow.” – Allenrw3
Never Let Me Down Again?
Cheap whiskey and Depeche Mode. – UniverseBomb Here, to get you started. Oh, and Grant’s isn’t bad.
“Time my friend. The heart hurts only for a season, and after you’re through it, you come out the other side strong.
Haha just kidding, could you imagine? Fcking alcohol dude. Drink until you’re too drunk to feel anything. Then send drunken texts to her calling her a dumb btch. That’s the way real men deal with heartbreak.” – A_Swiffer_Wet_Jet That sounds like bad advice camouflaged as good advice.
“I got divorced last year and was pretty bummed about it, despite the fact that she made my life hell and I’m way happier without that relationship. Anyway, I resigned from a voluntary,but integral position at work, just to lighten my load until I had finished the process. A colleague (who’s now on his 3rd marriage) gave me some great advice. He said, in a voice that lacked any sympathy : “Buy yourself a half-gallon of whiskey. When you finish the bottle, GET OVER IT, and come back to your position.” – TurtleGlobe

Hurting To Succeed
“Let your heartache drive you to be a better person. Get involved, get motivated. Study hard. Play the long game. What you want to be moving towards with your every action is so in 15 years you are standing on a podium, with a REALLY BIG CHECK in each hand and say : I am here thanks to the nameless girl who dumped me. Thanks, It was the best thing anyone has done for me, you made me the man I am today. and then walk off the stage with your beautiful and equally successful wife.
She will be at home, eating her liver and regretting everything.
Always the long game.” – arkofjoy
“Time and keep yourself busy. Avoid time alone by yourself if you aren’t good at finding substitutes for mind activity.
After my first breakup, I decided to pursue a couple new life goals – I started gym 4 days a week, told myself I’d learn a programming language and started volunteering at a local pet shelter. All of these things were intensely important to getting me where I am today in addition to boosting my skillsets and preventing me from wallowing in self pity.” – t8ke
An Updated “GTL?”
“#1. delete facebook
A Little Perspective
“An open mind. We tend to drown out the negative aspects of our significant others. Quit focusing on how “great” they were, or how “perfect” they are, and start focusing on their flaws. You’ll gain a better perspective of what YOU want out your next relationship. Though it may hurt now, each relationship can be considered a stepping stone to your one true fishy!” – FinalsWeak
Actually Very Good Advice
“Okay, so I peeped your comment history and you said you got rejected for prom, right?
“Living well is the best revenge.” That, my young reddit friend, was MY high school quote in MY yearbook, right under my photograph. The things is, you don’t even have to show anyone you’re living well, that’s the beauty of it. You just do it, all on your own.
Three things will always make you feel better: enough sleep, exercise, and a shower. Okay, maybe four things – eating right needs to be in there too. But that’s all it takes to feel right.
Then you focus on your projects – which for you personally means school. Intellectually, this is exactly what it is advisable to feel right.
Spiritually, if you are into that, it is advisable to practice whatever it really is. Head to church, light a candle, put on meditation, supply a prayer. Go sit in the forest. Pet your cat. Feed your hamster. Whatever floats your boat and enables you to feel you’re linked to more. Feed your soul.
Then you have to get out and do things. Go window shopping at the mall. Get yourself a job. Volunteer at a hospital. Call a pal and have meals together. Play video gaming. Stay busy. Log off FB and other social media marketing with whatsherface’s crap around it. Do new stuff. If you need different results in the foreseeable future, do different stuff now.
Sometimes, most of the time, rejection isn’t about you, it’s about them and their insecurities and life experiences. In the event that you saw a gold-colored coin on the road, you’d stop to choose it up, right? Not likely gold, though. Imagine if you saw a cent? Maybe not. But imagine if you stopped long enough to check out it, you’d view it was a rare coin from centuries ago and incredibly valuable – then you’d definitely pick it up, right? You’re the coin & most high school girls don’t possess the data to discern coin value. Just wait til your 10 year reunion.
