You get over your heartbreak by tapping into your creative side. You will start writing, painting, and dancing, or you’ll enroll in a photography or improv class.

You get over your heartbreak by hanging out with your friends day and night. Your friends are your therapists and your comfort zone, so you seek their love and support when you’re not doing so well.

You get over your heartbreak by pampering yourself. You go on a shopping spree or buy yourself a new car or book a first class ticket to Paris.

You get over your heartbreak by spending more time with your family. You find the love and warmth you need with your family and you need them more when you’re feeling sad or hurt.
