Heartbreak is the feeling of grief, sorrow, or overwhelming disappointment. Heartbreak can happen suddenly. There is little that anyone can say to you or do to relieve your initial pain from heartbreak. Time is the most effective healer.
No matter what is the cause of your heartbreak, learn to mourn your loss. Mourning is the healthy, first step to coping with any kind of heartbreak. “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
Hopelessness is a feeling of despair or inadequacy. It leaves you feeling incompetent, doubtful, and uncertain. Hopelessness often follows a series of disappointments and feelings of failure.
If you are facing a hopeless situation, stay faithful. If possible, remove yourself from negativity. If you can’t leave the negativity, renew your mind with positive affirmations and scripture. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3)
Humiliation results from feeling ashamed and foolish. Humiliation usually accompanies a public embarrassment instigated from others or yourself. Your dignity and self-respect has been wounded. Like heartbreak, humiliation can happen suddenly.
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” If you are experiencing humiliation, hold your head up! “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:10)
Recovery from heartbreak, hopelessness, and humiliation can be a slow and painful process. Forgive whoever is needed and that includes yourself. Then, get back into the game! God loves you. He’s helping you right now.
