Having your heart broken is extremely painful. It feels like your world has been turned upside-down and you find yourself going through a range of emotions, from shock to depression. You wonder whether you will ever overcome the sadness. Eventually you may reach the point of having suicidal thoughts.
While it is perfectly normal to experience some negative thoughts during such a difficult period, thoughts about suicide after breakup should be removed immediately.
Here’s how to heal a broken heart and deal with the feeling of extreme depression in order to overcome suicidal thinking:
These are a few things you can incorporate into your life and which will help you. You will begin to see and feel subtle changes taking place internally.
Importance of a Human life
A human life is a gift, so treasure it, do not squander it over worldly suffering. Be strong, you have acquired a human life after wandering through infinite another life form. It is only through a human form that one can be released from the countless cycles of life and death. Along with all the misery and suffering the world has to offer.
The goal of human life should be to acquire their pure Soul (shuddha Atma) thereby achieving liberation (moksha). Moksha is to experience freedom from all mental, physical and external problems by remaining in your real form of the Soul (Atma) experiencing internal bliss amidst all the suffering of the world.
Karmas are the reason why we have acquired a body, it is in all other forms of life when you dissipate the karmas but it is only in the human form that you binds karmas as well as dispels them. Thereby become free from charging any types of karmas good or bad and crucially become liberated.
Liberation can only be achieved through a fully an enlightened being (Gnani), as He has already attained the pure Soul and is gifted to do the same for others. An enlightened being is a highly elevated Soul, their sole purpose in life is to free everyone from the suffering of the world, and that they experience the same bliss of the pure Self. So, do not give up on life and contemplate suicide after breakup, it is better to accept what has happened to you and look for solutions to overcome the feeling of grief and figure out how to get over heartbreak.
Look for love which is unconditional, whole and the type which will do not cause you any heartache.
‘That which increases one moment and decreases the next is not love:
That which resides in the heart and remains the same is real love.’
This sort of love can only be found in a Gnani, it never increases or decreases – it is always constant regardless if you kind or rude towards them. Only a Gnani has this kind of love for each and every being in this whole world - this love is of the Absolute Self.
In contrast, the type of love which exists for human beings is full of infatuations and attractions therefore it rises and falls depending on the people they have in their life and unfolding of circumstances. You will realise this right away when someone you love says something hurtful to you.
For example, you have not seen your loved one for a very long time and they have come home, upon their arrival, you will be around them all of the time, you will eat together and be around each other. However, if one of the partners yells at the other. The one who has just been shouted at will think to herself what kind of person is he? Consequently, it will be the end of their love for each other.
Therefore, look for a Gnani to release you from your present predicament He will bestow the ultimate gift of the Self (Atma) on you, thereby, freeing you from your suffering.
