Tips

  • Pray every day 3 times a day.
  • Sometimes, external, technical steps can truly help keep you under self control and keep you from making mistakes (examples: blocking your phone from dialing the number of a person you shouldn't be calling; Blocking your computer from surfing into a specific website or account).

Warnings

  • These steps aren't by any means professional. These are merely the results of wikiHow contributors own experience with a broken heart and God's help in healing it. IF YOU FEEL VERY BAD, OR YOU FEEL BAD FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, PLEASE TALK TO A PROFESSIONAL TODAY. We DO sometimes need professional help, and it DOES NOT contradict any spiritual headway you may have made while getting over your grief.
