Affirmations for Broken Hearts:
This happened for a reason
Ugh, when you’re in the middle of the heartbreak trauma, this is probably the last breakup affirmation that seems true. But the second I took a step back and really thought about the reason, I began to feel better. While I may not have actually discovered the complete reason this happened, this affirmation has given me so much strength. And the reason is most likely going to be so so much better than what you had before.
There will be something better
Piggy backing off the previous affirmation, you need to believe that there is something better down the road. There’s a reason that relationship ended. Because it was broken and was not working or wasn’t healthy. So when you find something else, your future self will be happier than ever.
I am not worthless
The way my ex treated me when he broke up with me was like he just threw me out like trash. This goes for any relationship, but it just feels like shit when someone tells you they don’t want to be your friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/or whatever relation anymore. But while he treated me like I was worthless, I knew I wasn’t worthless. Because I knew this, I felt so much stronger. Repeating this to myself ultimately gave me power and strength over the situation to press forward.
I have control over my own life
This can pertain to anything from checking your ex’s social media accounts (which they should be blocked-so go do that now) to altering something in your life because of them. Don’t give them that power over you. This is your story. You are are the author. Not them.
I am capable of feeling love again
In the midst of a broken heart, it could feel very real that you won’t feel love again. But you will. Your heart will be stronger than before.
I am comfortable being alone
I am not saying you need to be okay with being alone immediately after a breakup. That would be way too much to ask. I am saying that eventually, you need to be comfortable being by yourself- whether that be on a Friday night or just being single.
I allow myself to feel all the feels
This breakup was actually the first time I had been broken up with and after 4 years of being together you can imagine I had a lot of feelings going on inside me. Because this was all so new to me, I didn’t exactly know how to handle all the feelings. Or how long I should let myself feel them.
But, I came to accept that when I needed to cry I just had to let it out. And you know what? After a while I didn’t feel the need to cry anymore. And when I felt I had to talk about it, my wonderful friends were there to listen. And guess what? I eventually annoyed myself talking about him. That’s when I knew it was time to let it go and move on.
Well, truth is everyone experiences these feelings differently and takes different amounts of time to heal. So know that this will take time, but give yourself grace if you fall off the wagon and have a “bad/sad day.” Getting over a breakup will most likely be 10 steps forward and 3 steps back, but you’re still moving forward 🙂
I forgive myself
Awe man, when you’re going through a breakup, it’s so easy to go back in time and question every small thing you might have done wrong to land you where you are.
But here’s the truth: if it wasn’t meant to be, it was going to end eventually. Really, the only way to get through this is to forgive yourself.
Did you say something that was a punch to the gut? It’s in the past. Forgive yourself.
Whatever you did is in the past, and replaying any of that will not help your future. Take all of it as a learning lesson and let it help you grow.
I forgive my ex
The opposite of love is not hate. It’s indifference. And when you hate someone, you have not healed and forgiven them for what they did to you. And remember: just because you forgive someone doesn’t mean you need to forget what happened. It simply means letting go and leaving all that in the past.
One of the biggest things I had to get over was not having closure. Things in my breakup were left pretty open-ended and never really explained to me. But in order to start healing, I had to become okay with not having closure. Not now, not ever. After a while of not worrying about the “why,” I eventually forgot about trying to rationalize everything.
