Heartbreak can be a traumatizing moment😔. It leaves you in pain, regret, and a wallow in self-pity. While the fear of being without a partner has made some people stick to unhealthy relationships, the brave ones leave and never look back. Ironically, these categories of people are sober and think of ways to get over the pain of a broken heart in the shortest possible time. In an attempt to overcome it as fast as possible, they cry so much, eat so much, drink to stupor, and some even get into a new relationship. The yummy part of this gist is that when they eventually go through the phases of heartbreak, their comeback becomes lit👌. This brings us to the main discourse; The different ways Nigerians get over a heartbreak. Let's look at them one at a time.
Pretend your way out
This league of people pretends that they are not hurt. In fact, they move on as quickly as the relationship ends. They have no time for ''sorry stories'' from friends of both parties. They are not interested in the conversation that talks about their partner. Their way of overcoming heartbreak is to put up the perfect act of a relaxed, happy, and unbothered person. They sometimes cry more at night when no one is looking and put up the usual attitude in the morning.
Because breakups can be stressful and emotional, it could potentially trigger emotional eating😔. The hard part of emotional eating is that in trying to pull through big heartbreaks, they break their own hearts every day. They eat more than their bodies want and binge on unhealthy foods that oftentimes make them sick.
The Block Industry ‘Geng’
We bet you didn't see that coming😂 If this is your style of handling heartbreak, gather here for attendance 😂 It's alright to block your ex from reaching you on both phone and social media as long as it makes you feel better. Although you may have the temptation to check what they have been up to of late. When it happens, be sure to be in control of the situation.
The Motivational Speakers
You never can tell what lies within you until heartbreak strikes 😂 These people turn their social media status into a hub of motivation quotes. These actions send a signal to their partner, some of them who understands the memo are quick to shade you or try to reconcile with you. Either way, your actions make you have a self-reflection.
R N B/ Comedy to the rescue
The emotional ones are on this table. Music and comedy make them happy and hopeful. Any time they listen to their playlist or watch some funny skit, they forget every heartbreak and focus on the brighter side of life.
Hearts are made to be resilient. Think about it: Is there a thing that's happened to you that you haven't survived despite all the heartache you've had in your life? Something in you is still awake, alive, eager to learn, ready to be moved.
