Broken Relationships Hurt, But Can Be Healed From!Broken Relationships.

Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.


If you are currently going through a tough time due to broken relationships, it is important to surround yourself with supportive family and friends. They can provide the comfort, love, and guidance that you need during this healing process. Remember, trying to recover on your own can lead to feelings of isolation and depression that may only worsen the situation. So, lean on those who care about you most; they will be your pillars of strength throughout this journey. To ensure that you maintain good health throughout this challenging period, make sure you prioritize self-care by eating healthy food, and avoiding alcohol and street drugs which can seem to offer temporary relief but hinder true healing in the long run.


Stay socially connected by spending quality time with loved ones or joining support groups where individuals have experienced similar hardships and understand what you’re going through. Additionally, begin each day by walking close to God in quiet reflection through prayer, bible reading or other spiritual practices such as journaling. – no relationship is immune from breakage. Although our focus here primarily revolves around those who give up easily when faced with deal-breakers like broken agreements or infidelity – let us acknowledge that regardless of circumstances surrounding a severed bond; all broken relationships hurt deeply and frustrate immensely. Don’t hesitate to ask God for help when feeling overwhelmed – he is always ready and willing to guide us during our darkest moments! It’s also advisable not rush into new relationships until all wounds have healed from previous experiences because carrying baggage from past hurtful experiences will only create more problems down the road. It is hard to navigate in any relationship, but when things from the past have not been dealt with, it can add extra stress and potential hard ache. ~ Bill Greguska


Psalm 34:18  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those crushed in spirit.

How To Heal After Broken Relationships And Heartbreak?



Five Stages Of Grief

Letting go of a bad relationship can be complicated. That’s because the end of a relationship is, in some ways, like experiencing a death. Even if you are the one that initiated the breakup—and even if you believe that the breakup is the best thing for all involved—letting go of a relationship follows the same process as mourning a death.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D., in her groundbreaking book On Death and Dying (1969), outlined the phases of grieving experienced when one learns that they are dying. Her stages have since been aptly used to describe the process of grieving the death of a loved one.
A similar thing happens when grieving the end of a relationship. The following are Dr. Kubler-Ross’ stages of grief applied to a breakup. (The pronouns he and she can be used interchangeably.)

1. Denial

In this phase, our heart—rather than our head. Even though we know the relationship is over, we don’t believe it. Against the better judgment of everyone around us, we can’t help but entertain fantasies of things somehow working out. We see hidden glimmers of hope buried in clear indications that it’s over. (Unsurprisingly, this is the phase where we are most susceptible to late-night texting.)

2. Anger

Anger can manifest in many different ways—anger at your ex (“How could he do this to me? Why can’t she stop being selfish?”), anger at God or the universe (“Why can’t anything ever work out for me? Why am I cursed?”), anger at people or situations associated with the break-up (anger at the “other woman”; anger that your partner lost her job because that is when she “changed”), and anger at other people who don’t agree or stand with your anger (“Can you believe George and Jane still want to be friends with him after what he did to me?”).
This is the phase where we think it’s a great idea to tell anyone and everyone how “crazy” or “psycho” our ex was. This is also when we believe it’s crucial to send our ex-hateful emails because we don’t want him to think he got away with anything.

3. Bargaining

Bargaining often goes hand in hand with denial. Bargaining can be looking for any possible way to make the relationship work through negotiation, threats, and magic—for example, telling your ex that you will change, move, or go to therapy or telling him he is hurting the children, his family, your family, and the dog by leaving. And, of course, this phase is not limited to bargaining with your ex. Many people bargain with The Powers That Be, promising to be a better person if only the ex would come back. You may take a new interest in astrology, tarot cards, or any voodoo that will forecast a reunion during this stage. This is also when we attempt to enlist all friends and family to “talk some sense” into them.

4. Depression

Depression, like anger, also surfaces in many different forms, for example, feeling tired all the time, not wanting to do anything but lay in bed, feeling disconnected from people even when you’re with them, being on the verge of tears most of the time, trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, loss of appetite or overeating, increase in drug or alcohol use and—the big one—hopelessness. Hopelessness is the most pervasive and debilitating; it is the thing that leads us to believe that nothing will ever be or feel different than it is right now. Hopelessness makes it feel like you will never move on and that nothing will work out for you.

5. Acceptance

Finally, this is the phase in which we can make peace with the loss. It doesn’t always come on suddenly; it often happens gradually, bit by bit, interspersed with other phases. Acceptance doesn’t always involve harmony and flowers—there is almost sure to be lingering sadness. Acceptance entails making peace with the loss, letting go of the relationship, and slowly moving forward with your life. Sometimes it feels like this phase will never come, which usually means you’re still struggling in an earlier phase. Knowing your phases of grief can help normalize your break-up experience. It’s also important to know that there are no time limits and no rushing the process. Grieving is like digestion: You can do nothing to hurry it along. It takes time, and the only thing you can do is try to get through it. But take heart that this, like everything else, will eventually pass.

God Knows What Is Best For Us!



Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV 

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Genesis 2:18 ESV 

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV 

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

1 Corinthians 6:18 ESV 

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

Galatians 5:19-21 ESV 

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Proverbs 17:17 ESV 

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Ephesians 5:25 ESV 

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

Proverbs 4:23 ESV 

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
