Going through heartbreak is an inevitable action that cannot be avoided. People do not understand the magnitude of hurt that happens during heartbreaks, it is something that can only be understood when you experience it first-hand. You are always going to be in need of the person that was once yours and you will be emotional just thinking about being without your over.

There are several changes that begin subtly after a breakup, you might not realize you are changing but you are.

  • 1. Insomnia.

You will find it difficult to sleep everyday. You feel the heartbreak and loneliness harder in the night-time due to the fact that the amount of distracting things are limited as opposed to the day time. During the day, you have a number of things to do that will occupy your mind like work, events or even a couple of friends that will want to take you out to distract you. But once the day ends, you are back alone in your room with only yourself as a company. Even though you did a lot of things during the day and you are mentally exhausted, you still find yourself contemplating about if you would’ve changed certain things about yourself, if maybe the relationship will still be budding.

Times like this, you should find something that will make you sleep or chill out. It is very important not to worry yourself with the “what ifs” so that you can have a good night rest in preparation for the next day.

  • 2. Inability to have fun anymore.

When you were in a relationship, night out with your friends were usually awesome. You use to look forward to it and have the time of your life but now that you are heartbroken, it seems like the night outs are no longer as fun as they use o be. You have suddenly lost the zeal to have fun. Even when everyone around you is having the time of their life, you feel extremely isolated.

  • 3. Lack of zeal to perform simple chores.

The chores that use to be so simple to do seem so difficult to handle when you’re heartbroken. It will take you long time to do basic chores such as laundry, dishes etc. You should however remember that this phase will pass but you have to rise above your heartbreak for it to pass.

  • 4. You enjoy your Solitude.

Even after you are over the breakup, you will still see yourself enjoying being alone. This phase is one that you have to work through so as to find out who you are so that you can be mentally prepared for the next step in your life.

  • 5. You get new hobbies.

Due to the fact that tasks and hobbies you and your ex did together causes you to hurt, you will find yourself picking up new hobbies to feel the void that you have. This is not a bad thing as you have to have an activity to channel all your pent-up energy.

The time heartbreak lasts varies with different people but the only thing that remains constant is the fact that it will pass away.
