Love and Sad Poems

Help for Sadness

Sadness visits us all from time to time. These feelings are common after the end of a relationship, whatever the cause, and often regardless of who initiated the breakup.

Recovering from a breakup is not easy for anyone. Some people seem to take more time to mend their broken hearts than others, and some relationships can seem harder to resolve than others in your life.

There may be some things you can do to help speed the process, such as sharing your feelings with close friends or family members and taking good care of yourself physically. Getting plenty of rest, eating healthy, and exercising can help combat sadness and boost self-esteem.

Sometimes, though, the feeling of sadness may linger too long and interfere with life and with your regular routine. Talking to a mental health professional, like a psychologist, can help you sort through your feelings and begin the healing process.

Some online resources that could be of benefit: Expert information and non-commerical resources on mental health & lifelong wellness. A fabulous compilation of information.

NIMH: The National Institute for Mental Health has an excellent booklet you can download off of the page I'm linking you to.

Dr. Ivan's Depression Central: The self-proclaimed central clearinghouse for information on all types of depressive disorders and on the most effective treatments. Tons of links here, lots of information.
