The Emotional Aftermath of Breaking Up

It hurts that you broke up! You are so miserable that you don’t believe anyone can understand. You may not want to share the overwhelming emotions you feel with anyone, let alone yourself. The pain, anger, and disappointment you feel, as well as fear and fear, are all normal.

You don’t want to allow any one of these negatives to get out of control. Understanding what’s going on inside of you will help you to manage the pain and ultimately rise above it.

Are You Angrily? You Bet!

Anger is a natural emotion that reacts to other emotions. Anger can be triggered by unkind words, disappointment, and the dissolution of a relationship. Here’s how it works.


  • You are not able to meet your personal needs.
  • You may perceive injury as real or imagined to yourself.
  • You find the situation unacceptable, disturbing, or harmful.
  • It is frustrating.
  • Your state of enjoyment is disrupted.

All the above factors contribute to your anger over the loss of your loved one. For a complete list, add the following:

  • Lack of closure
  • Inability to reunite you with your loved ones
  • Communication barriers that prevent you from communicating with your estranged spouse
  • You fail to convince your partner that you are still in love with them
  • False perceptions and malicious intentions are revealed
  • Unable to understand why love failed

Is your anger excessive? If you are displaying anger, fury, and wrath, it could be an indication of excessive anger. It can be difficult to control your anger, as we all know.

Kenneth S. Isaacs is a Chicago psychotherapist, author, and educator. He believes that anger is part of our animal nature, which encourages us to harm others to protect ourselves.

In the end, love relationships are broken down when people verbally attack each other and say things they don’t mean. Later, they regret these statements.

Here’s an easy way to reduce anger

  1. Talk it out with someone.
  2. Use your energy. You can run, play a sport, or spar with a punching box.
  3. Do a time-out. Do a time-out.
  4. Talk to yourself.
  5. You must focus on how you can use it to your advantage.
  6. For excessive, uncontrollable anger, seek help immediately!

It’s not wise to allow your anger to simmer, boil, or overflow. This will make it difficult to make rational, sensible decisions about your relationships with loved ones and can even lead to a breakdown. You should make an effort to control your anger if you are prone to displaying excessive anger.

The Pain Of Unanswered Love

Happiness is found in mutual love and affection. If love isn’t reciprocated, the opposite happens. Unrequited love can lead to misery, agony, and unhappiness. That may be how you feel.

Research has shown that women are more likely to experience broken hearts, unrequited affection, and the end of a relationship than men. Females are also more likely to feel mistreated or exploited and suffer greater emotional harm when relationships end.

Men believe that they were used to provide emotional support and ego boosters when women suddenly withdraw from their romantic interest. It’s not nearly as shocking.

Ask yourself if your symptoms are similar to those seen in others.

  1. A loss in self-esteem
  2. Personal thoughts about worthlessness and inadequacy
  3. Self-doubt
  4. Diminished confidence
  5. Trust erosion
  6. Feeling vulnerable
  7. Depression can occur at any time.
  8. Tension is on the rise
  9. Feelings of grief
  10. Self-pity
  11. Rejection in large doses
  12. Inward movement and the erection of barriers

How To Deal With Feelings Of Rejection

Another annoying, natural, and inevitable condition of being human is the sensitivity to rejection. It can lead to humiliation and even loss of acceptance. It is possible to see the rejection objectively if you can quickly move past the emotional aspect.

Let’s suppose Robby split with Robin. Robin immediately wondered what was wrong. She couldn’t keep Robby. She felt sad, unattractive, and depressed. She realized that Robby was far more sensitive to her situation than she thought. She was smarter than Robby and had more ambitions than Robby. Robby was also more active than her.

They were not compatible. She was perfect. It was not a good match. That’s it. Robin didn’t realize that her initial rejection felt like a stinging sensation. It was a result of something she had done in the past. Elayne Savage (Ph.D.), the author of Don’t Take It Personal (New Harbinger Publications 1997), suggests that we keep a list of notions about rejection from childhood to adulthood.

This is how we feel about being rejected. Robin was seven when her dad left the family. Robin heard her mother telling her friends at the time that her husband wasn’t loving her anymore. Robin listened to her mother’s response and adopted it into her belief system. She believed that male rejection was due to her inadequacy whenever she faced it.

Beating Rejection

Elayne Savage Ph.D. is a rejection expert who says you can beat rap if:

  1. Rejection is not something to be taken personally. Only then can you determine if your feelings are justified or rooted in the past.
  2. You learn to empathize with others and understand their perspectives.
  3. To gain a better understanding of the situation and to reduce the emotional flood, you need to step out of the situation.
  4. It is not okay for someone to reject you or make you feel inferior.
  5. We understand your feelings of rejection.
  6. Recognize the rejection, accept it, and then move on.
  7. Fear of rejection should not stop you from taking action.

You are now ready to overcome self-doubt by having a new perspective on rejection and seven great suggestions for how to get past it. Although it may take some time to master the steps, it is worth the effort. You will find self-determination and confidence when you don’t take rejection personally. These three attributes can help you rise from the hard reality of a split.

Romantic Depression Topples

Do you feel anxious, depressed, fatigued, stressed, anxious, worried, angry, or blue? You may be experiencing depression symptoms. You don’t need to panic and book an appointment for intensive, immediate, and comprehensive psychotherapy sessions. Mild depression is common in people between 25 and 40 years old. It’s a natural response to the loss of love. Nearly everyone feels the blues at least once a week. For men, money is the primary reason for their woes; for women it’s relationships.

How To Climb Out Of The Dumps

You might be able to make it out of your own misery. Unconsciously, people are skilled at changing their moods and finding new distractions. If you feel blue, you might choose to watch a comedy, go on a vacation to somewhere sunny and warm, or indulge in carbs and chocolate (if a girl) or red meat and proteins (if a man). You have probably found your own way out of the pits.

You have learned what results in you like and what makes you feel good. This is because you have been conditioned to respond in this way. If you feel low, you will automatically return to the same behavior.

Some people enjoy a glass of wine, talking to friends, drinking wine, and running a few miles. Keep trying if you don’t find your magic bean. Ellen McGrath, psychologist and author of When Feeling Bad Is Good (Henry Holt and Company 1992) says that it is important to manage your emotions positively and lead to action.

Depression Out-of-Hand

These are signs that your depression is more severe than a mild, normal range. Professional assistance may be required.

  • Inability to fall asleep
  • Energy deficiency is a serious problem
  • A permanent state of agitation
  • Continual fatigue
  • A serious drop in self-esteem
  • Incapability to feel pleasure

If you experience any of these side effects of romantic depression and you are unable or unwilling to get rid of the gloomy feeling, it is worth seeking professional help.

Stand up against fear and worry

You’re dumbfounded as you stand in a restaurant. Frieda and Fred have just broken up with you. Fear and worry can creep in, regardless of whether you are willing to admit it. Ask yourself: Will I ever find someone to love me and marry?

Experts in the field say that the more you worry, you will worry more. You will be skilled at worrying. If you can imagine the worst scenario, you can fixate on the negative side of things and worry about what could go wrong, even though everything seems fine.

The constant worrier is exaggerated. The perpetual worrier will worry about never finding a partner, instead of simple worries such as where to meet new people or who will be their date for the black-tie affair at work next week.

Definition of Worry

It’s not hard to see. Worry is a result of fear. Add emotion, memory, anticipation, imagination, and a bit of imagination to a fear. You get something extra that makes you feel powerless and vulnerable. Worry is a sign of uncertainty and a lack of trust in the future. The sympathy of others only serves to reinforce the idea that something is wrong and that you need to worry.

Here Are Some Ways To Get Rid Of Your Romantic Worries

There is no way to avoid worrying. Everyone does it. In 1997, German scientists discovered a worry gene.

Psychologists maintain that genes are secondary to determining how worried you are and what worries you have. It is important to consider your environment and how you approach problems and deal with them.

You have the power to control your worries, and you should not let them cause anxiety or stress. These are some ways to reduce romantic worries.

  1. Exercise is the best treatment. While you’re at it, go to a gym and meet people you like to run with.
  2. Prayer and meditation are both relaxing and reduce worry. Nearly every synagogue or church has a singles group.
  3. Keep going out to meet new people. They will confirm that there are many eligible men and women available for you.
  4. Brad Schmidt, Ohio State University associate professor of psychology, believes that the best way to reduce worry is to identify what you are concerned about. Then, evaluate honestly whether the concern is realistic and reasonable. You will find that you are not justified in worrying given the circumstances.

The emotions that can flood your life after a breakup include worrying, anger, sadness, depression, and even despair. There are ways to reduce the effects of worry and fear, just like the anger, pain and depression that accompany a breakup.
