Many men find that dealing with a broken heart can be just as unbearable as any form of physical pain. Some men who overcome heartbreak will often improve and grow stronger as new relationships form, while others may create an unhealthy obsession with the person who gave them the heartbreak. With the right information you will be able to learn what actions should be taken to efficiently heal from a heartbreak.

Vent your emotions. Many men will repress their emotions if they are not comfortable crying at the risk of being seen as weak or less masculine. Repressed emotions may keep you in a state of sadness for an even further period of time. Take some time alone to release any emotions you may be feeling from the heartbreak.

Find a way to express how you feel. There are many ways that you can express your feelings, which can help relieve the heartbreak. Some ways include writing in a journal, writing poems, playing a music instrument, drawing art or kickboxing.

Find support in your family and friends. Let them know how you feel and ask them for advice and guidance on how to deal with the heartbreak. Only talk to friends who care and have been known to show support in previous situations.

Take sometime to enjoy your life. Rather than obsessing over how you felt before the heartbreak, make it a goal to find other ways that can help refill joy in your life. Watching a movie, eating at a fine restaurant or meeting up with friends can help you refocus on the positive things going on in your life.

Learn from the heartbreak. Find out what was the cause of the heartbreak and what you could have done differently to help prevent another heartbreak from happening. Becoming aware of the mistakes that were made will make you alert of them in your future relationships.
