Though we most commonly think of breakups in terms of romantic relationships, we can find ourselves heartbroken for lots of reasons throughout life. Our hearts break when a family member is given a serious diagnosis or passes. They break when we get our hopes so high that they come crashing down on us, and they can even break in some of our happiest moments, like the youngest child leaving home to go off to college. At the end of the day, a broken heart is the feeling we get in times of extreme sadness. And although it can feel like there is no use going on, a good self-care routine can give your heart and head the time and space they need to complete the healing process.
