How to Help Someone With a Broken Heart

It can be agonizing to watch a friend or loved one suffer through a broken heart. However, there are things that we can do to help them through it. Now if you did the heartbreaking, that would be an altogether different situation. If you broke someone's heart accidentally, you can probably help the healing process with a heartfelt apology and doing everything in your power to make up for the wrong. If you did it intentionally, for whatever reason, the odds are unless you think you made a mistake and try to fix it, everything you do will only add to the other person's pain.

Why Does God Hate Me?

If you are asking the question, “Why does God hate me?”, then probably you are looking at your life, the circumstances you’ve found yourself in, your relationships, your financial situation, or your health and you don’t like it. People who think this way usually face traumatic events or situations that, when compared to other people around them, seem to be unfair. Since they can’t see why they have to struggle and others do not, they can only see one explanation. God must hate them.

How to Prevent a Broken Heart

If there could be a way to prevent that sinking feeling and cold chill you get when someone betrays you, would you do it? If you could guarantee that you'd never again have to suffer a sleepless night or cry yourself to sleep again, would that interest you? Having a broken heart is all too common.
