Remember “sheesha ho ya dil ho, aakhir toot jaata hai,”- the popular Hindi song from a 1980 movie Aasha? It is hard to go through heartbreaks. But, the truth is they make you stronger and wiser. However, just after heartbreak, life seems bleak. Here are some signs that suggest you’ve been heartbroken. Image: Getty
Your favourite food tastes like paper
Of course you have lost all taste of life, including your food. You feel like there could still be a chance for the both of you, maybe even in the far future, and you end up thinking about your old love over and over again. This is when you have no interest in what you are eating, even if it is your favourite dish. Image: Getty
You like listening to “Tadap tadap ke” and “Sach keh raha hai deewana” on loop.
Those two are like The Holy Grail for people with a recent heartbreak. But believe us, sad, sappy songs are a bad idea. Music has a huge amount of control over human emotions, and there are few things that can immediately change a person’s mood as effectively as music. If a sad song comes on the radio, change the song to a more upbeat one. If a song that was special to you and your ex comes on, turn it off or throw the player out of your window.

You just want to get drunk and mourn.
You invite your friends over, but not to enjoy with them. You just want to have a heart-to-heart and get wasted and mourn your love story. It’s easy to drown your sorrows in intoxicating liquids. It may help you forget your ex for a few hours; but the worst part comes in the morning, when you get up with a splitting headache, a lousy feeling in your stomach, depressions, and a totally miserable and painful heartache.

You snap at everyone for no valid reason
Everyone needs time for themselves after a traumatic event, but in the process, don’t let yourself be alone for too long. Surround yourself with people again, whether it’s friends, family or co-workers, as early as possible because it will help you immensely in getting over a broken heart. You may find it little difficult at first, but force yourself to be with people after you’ve spent an appropriate amount of time alone. Image: Getty
You look back at the past and wish that you had done things differently
Avoid doing this, as it will only make you feel even more suicidal! If your true love has come to an end, accept it or you will go mad. Do not beg or cry over it. But, above all, one thing that you should not do after a heart break is drunk-dialling to your ex. Don’t write them mushy e-mail. Don’t spend all day reading their Facebook pages. Don’t send packages or CD’s. Don’t dedicate a song to your ex on the radio, in an effort to woo them back. Image: Getty
