(March 21st to April 19th)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’re hoping your ex will come crawling back to you, and realize they were a complete idiot for ever letting you go. Even if you won’t admit it aloud, the real reason you haven’t completely moved on is because a part of you doesn’t want to, a part of you wants to wait and see if the person who broke your heart will realize they messed up.


(April 20th to May 21st)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you continue to think about all of the happy memories of your last relationship, and they’re blinding you to all of the bad ones. Your relationship ended for a reason, and whether you like it or not, it’s over. You likely experienced plenty of good times with this person, but try to think about why the relationship had to end. Remind yourself of why it didn’t work. It’s okay to remember the good times, but don’t let those happy memories convince you that the relationship is salvageable. The memories might last forever, but it doesn’t mean the relationship can or will. Some relationships are temporary and that’s okay.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’ve been looking for other people to heal it, and real healing begins with yourself. Your heart won’t heal by jumping from one relationship to another, and you can’t rely on other people to fix what’s wrong with you. Work on yourself first, because someone else won’t be as willing to love you if you can’t love them back, and you’ll be able to reciprocate love when your heart is ready for it.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you haven’t ventured outside of your comfort zone since the heart break happened. You’ve been staying in place instead of moving forward and it’s because you’re comfortable with where you currently are, but you deserve more than comfort. You deserve laughter and joy and true happiness, and you’re not finding it because you’re mistaking all of those things for just feeling ‘okay.’ Take a risk and you’ll see that you can feel better than just okay. Taking a risk is scary, but overcoming that fear is what helps you grow and learn and eventually, heal.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’re not acknowledging the things you did wrong. You don’t have to feel sorry or guilty for the mistakes you’ve made, but you at least have to own up to them. We all mess up from time to time, and you are no exception. Take responsibility for the things you’ve done wrong and it will help you move on from them.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you can’t let all of the things you did wrong, go. You’re hard on yourself and you always have been, but the mistakes you made in your past relationship don’t deserve the attention you give them. Forgive yourself for everything you did wrong and realize that you’re allowed to make mistakes. You’re not a bad person for messing up. You’re human, and mistakes are inevitable. All you can do is acknowledge the mistakes you’ve made and try not to make them again.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you haven’t spent enough time on your own. You constantly surround yourself with people because you’re terrified of being alone, but being alone doesn’t always have to feel lonely, there’s a huge difference between the two. It might help your heart to heal if you spend some time with you and only you. Take a deep dive into your feelings and give yourself time to think.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’ve been lying to everyone around you that you’re completely over it, but the worst person you’re lying to is yourself. You’ve convinced yourself that you’ve moved on simply because you don’t want to deal with the feelings attached to your previous relationship. Your feelings are very similar to your problems, they won’t disappear until you deal with them. Acknowledge the feelings you have towards the relationship that broke your heart and try to make sense of why you have them.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you think that running away will solve everything. You’re a wanderer and you always have been, but expecting a place to heal your heart might be expecting too much. You can fly all over the world, but you can’t run away from heartbreak.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’re too proud to admit that it’s broken. You’re a pretty serious person and you don’t like to openly display your weaknesses, but you’re not weak for having a broken heart, you’re human. The fact that you tried to love is a triumph in itself, because it takes courage to put your heart out there, and it takes strength to admit when someone has completely destroyed it. Own your broken heart, don’t deny it. Once you do that, you can take the steps it takes to heal it.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you keep asking yourself why. Why did the relationship end? Why did he/she do this and why did you do that? Every why you ask yourself is about the past, and it’s preventing you from seeing the potential for love in your future. You’re shutting out all the possibilities for your life moving forward because you haven’t found the answers you’re looking for from your past. Stop asking the questions that prevent you from moving on.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Your broken heart hasn’t healed because you’re expecting things like fate and destiny to magically make your life align with love. Healing takes hard work, and the universe won’t do it for you. Take initiative and understand that you have to heal yourself before the world or anyone else can. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
