Break up Blues

Heartbreak is perhaps one of the hardest experiences that young people struggle with today. Neeraj is a victim of this malady. His girlfriend of three years dumped him recently and because of which he sunk into depression.

He isolated himself,  20140706_190746put on huge amounts of weight and spent most of his hours sleeping or brooding about his ex girlfriend. His waking hours were filled with unreal fantasies about her or worrying about whom she might be dating at present.

Life was no longer about himself or his well being, but rather about brooding and reminiscing about a past. This only caused him more pain and made him sink deeper into depression. He became manic depressive and had constant mood swings.

People in such situations not only harm themselves but unknowingly damage others they live with, such as close family and friends, by withdrawing from them and having frequent bouts of acrid and unhappy interactions.

Those in their immediate environment may or may not know of their deep pain and even if they do, may not be equipped to deal with the challenges involved. Invariably when the well meaning efforts of close ones are repeatedly thwarted, the family also begins to tire out, becoming impatient and a vicious circle of disharmony gradually invades their living space.

The best thing you can do to help someone who may be struggling with heartbreak is refer them to a Mental health professional or reputed alternative therapist so that the individual can be assisted in reclaiming his life, his self esteem and his lost confidence. Heartbreak can impact and impair people so severely that they helplessly make damaging choices instead of reaching out for help.
