You can't leave a place you've never been. If you don't allow yourself to visit and even waller in your sadness and grief you won't be able to heal and move on. Relationships are the cradle of pleasure and pain. It's part of the human condition. Easy to enter and hard to leave. Strageties for healing include emotional release like crying and physical release like exercise help. Meditation and calming your mind using relaxation is also useful. Getting into a nature setting helps to reset your inner tranquility and settle emotions run wild. It's important to heal the old wounds before you start over, but don't let the old ones become scars that cannot be penetrated by starting over. Trust and love yourself. Only then can you open yourself to love another.
