Also, you need to understand the feelings you are experiencing. You need to determine the reason you must let the dust settle. Try to observe the situation as more than negative, stimulate growth with a new perspective.

2. Get over the past mistakes, guilt, and regret: the guilt over past mistakes can become petrifying if you allow it to consume you. Regrets can burden your life or motivate it, so it is essential to get past the guilt and move beyond regrets and remember we have all made mistakes. It is a part of life.

How to embrace past mistakes, guilt, and regret:

Everybody remembers their downfalls, and it often brings about guilt from experience and current actions. The thoughts of guilt tense to plague the minds. So how can we feel free of guilt? Life is free and better when you rid yourself of guilt, regret, and mistakes. The most significant thing to remember when embracing past mistakes, failures, and regret, you have to be tired of feeling helpless and want to regain control. To retrieve control of your life, you need to understand what is going on inside by making yourself a priority.

If you desire to learn the complexity of human existence, you need to turn to the “word” of God for strength because the Bible knows what is going on inside of you. The reason you should read and use his words, they are righteous and powerful words that will generate new trains of thought to lift the spirit to new ways of feeling.

3. Take the time to heal when your heart is broken, you need to take the time to heal. To love involves suffering, but when you a slave to desire, you are in denial, and it is the root of all misery.

The human brain is one of the most amazing things in this world. When you experience a broken heart, the mind reacts with capabilities that are hard for the heart to comprehend. If you want to heal from a broken heart, the best way to deal with the creative power of the brain is to step back and reboot it. Similar to what you do to a computer that isn’t performing well.

Plus, having your heart broken is not the end of the world. God puts pain in your hearts so he can write a destiny over your lives. And if you take the time to listen and trust Him at His word, you will find yourself on a journey toward the fulfillment of hope and healing to live a happy life.

Unfortunately, the path that you must travel to lead you to happiness is one line with wrought, thickets, and thorns. DO not be afraid because God will be there every step of the way if you allow him. Anything worth having comes with opposition. Indicating the challenges will come, to bring out fears, but if God allows the path to be difficult, He will prepare you for your place of commitment. He is removing you from that which your enemy love to leverage against you.

Remember, no one can avoid heartache, but when you practice acceptance, you can learn how to receive life’s hardship to experience less pain. Disappointment is a part of life, and for that reason, nothing turns out as you would like. We all see pain as a negative experience, but there is a lesson in every experience present; it may sound extreme, but the pain is necessary for any personal growth. The maturity enables you to stop questioning, where do broken hearts go? And serve you with healing and hope to deal with disappointment.
