Being in love can be great, the feelings and memories attached are like no other. However, unfortunately, not all love lasts and anyone who has gone from being in a relationship to being single will tell you that heartbreak can suck.

We all deal with heartbreak differently and there is most certainly no right or wrong way of dealing with it. According to Cherlyn Chong, there is a process to heartbreak that many of us will be sure to relate to and she’s detailed the exact process in her latest comic series.

The inspiration behind the comic? Chong’s own experience of heartbreak herself. About the comic she says:

“After wallowing around in misery for a day, I decided that I wasn’t going to be a sad mess anymore. I decided to use my situation for good instead of evil and since I was drawing comics anyway, I created this comic to help others going through the exact same thing.

I want people to be able to take the pain out for a bit and realize that they are going to be OK, they just need to turn that love back towards themselves.”

Take a look at part one of the comic below, and check out Cherlyn Chong’s website Steps to Happyness for the rest of the comic.
