A couple of days ago I broke up with my boyfriend of two years. We didn't break up because he mistreated me or because I didn't love him, but because we were just in two different places in our lives. We were beginning to grow apart and wanting different things in our future. I know I did the right thing by ending it, but it still hurts so badly. I love him as a person so much and I miss having my best friend around. Do you have any advice for someone with a broken heart? Grieving Gabby

Dear Grieving Gabby
I am so sorry you are brokenhearted. Breakups are always tough especially when you can't blame someone or something for your split. Sometimes it is just easier to be mad at the other person than to admit the timing just wasn't right but the person was. Take it easy on yourself as your wound is still raw. Time is the best healer out there although it can feel like an eternity until you feel better.
Do you have a good group of girlfriends you can spend time with? A sister or a mom you can talk to? Do what makes you feel good. Get a massage or treat yourself to a day of shopping, anything to keep your mind busy. Every person is different and each breakup is unique. I wish there was a magic potion out there to heal your heart, but you are just going to have to give it time. Keep your chin up.
