Broken heart takes three months to heal

London, January 4: How much time does it take to heal a broken heart? According to a new survey, most adults take just about three months or 11 weeks to see that the break–up turns positive. For the results, researchers studied 155 young adults who had experienced failed relationships recently. They found that 71 percent of them agreed with positive statements such as “I have learned a lot about myself”, “I have grown as a person”, and “I am more goal–oriented”. Interestingly, these results applied whether the person had initiated their breakup or not. The findings “indicate that growth and positive emotions may be a larger part of the relationship dissolution of experience than previously thought,” the researchers wrote in a paper that appeared in the Jourl of Positive Psychology. A study last year also revealed that January is the breakup month.  (IANS)
