  • Everyone is different so no one can give you a time period for how long it will take. It just depends on you, the relationship and so much. Just take one day at a time.

  • A long time, but you need to help your self heal. It does not mend on its own. You can't sit and dwell or wonder what if, or what could I have done. it is hard work. Good luck....

  • It depends on how strong your heart is and your desire to let it heal

  • Some of the best advice I was ever given regarding the end of a relationship was to Stay Busy. Get up and out, do not sit and rehash and relive the moments of 'what ifs'. Its simple advice to give, but does require effort on our parts. For me I got up and out, I stayed busy (had 2 school aged children and I worked full time outside the home). In just a few short months I was amazed and surprised at how little I was thinking about 'him'. I contribute that to staying busier than usual. Good Luck.

  • While things can improve I don't know if you can ever truly and completely heal from a broken heart
