By Diane Forrest,

“And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
Tell me how can you stop the sun from shining
What makes the world go round?”

This verse is from a 1971 song by the Bee Gees asking the question how can you mend a broken heart?  It is a good probability that anyone who has been in love has had a broken heart, and even broken a heart or two.  There are plenty of clichés' out there such as "If you fall off the horse, just get right back on", and "There is plenty more fish in the sea", and “it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all", but these offer little comfort when you are the one with the heartbreak.

There are many things that can cause heartbreak.  The break up of a relationship, a divorce, a death, estrangement with a family member, even the loss of a pet.  When my husband's beloved dash hound had to be put down it broke his heart, he cried for a week, and that broke my heart, watching him grieve.  It was easier to replace a lost pet, even though he missed his dog, the new puppy helped to ease the pain.  It is not as easy to replace a lost relationship. offers 12 ways to mend a broken heart.  They include:
  • Go through it, not around it.
  • Stand on your own.
