This might not work for you of course, but when I feel extremely lonely or upset, I go somewhere away from other people, where I can think and do what I want. Usually I go somewhere quiet, like the woods near my house, and just forget about everything. That always helps
Apart from that, I talk to people on the internet or watch something funny or cheerful, a film or a YouTube video.
I thought about taking my horse for a trail ride, but its cold, and she a princess and wouldn't go for very long until she started acting up haha. I might take that advice. Just go sit out at the barn by myself. My horse has been my biggest suporter lately.
Love is a complicated thing to handle, I believe we all know! A good thing ofcourse which you already mentioned is to keep yourself busy. Explore the world, dive in books. Do the thing you love to do most. And since you're on dA, I can't imagine your love without art. Express yourself, for many people it's relieving. Find new interests get to know different people on dA. It's not only a community about art, but also exploring. Leave the past behind, how difficult it might be, you'll eventually get there. And you're already doing a great job talking about your issues on dA. Get people involved, it makes you an experience richer!

it's normal to feel loneliness, you were with this guy for quite some time. Clean your mind. I wouldn't suggest that you stress to find something to do, simply let yourself grief, you will find someone else to replace loneliness with time. If you want to do something, do it because you want to, not to forget about him or not be sad.
You need to take about a full week if not more time to deal with this pain head first. yea keeping your self busy is keeping the pain at bay, but... in all honesty thats not helping, its just post pone ing what you're going to have to eventually accept. when you can come to terms with being an individual you'll get over that loser.
you were fine before he came into your life, nothings changed. good luck and god bless -chimera
Aw I'm sorry bout that It'd be rough, for sure. I'd say use the time to experiment with some new things to do, new art forms maybe? Christmas will be over soon, and you'll be okay As for missing him, it'll take time. I usually listen to music that maybe helps understand those feelings (if that makes sense ) Best of luck to you
Could you pick up a hobby or project? Try a whole new form of art, maybe? Or just try to see your family more?
It's hard to keep busy without other people, I know, but just try it and know that soon Christmas will be over and people will probably have more time/money. Also, it only really gets better from here. Just try not to dwell on the past, regret things that could have gone better or anything like that; you'll have met someone new one day and that wouldn't have happened unless this did first.
Thank you. Im not sure what kind of hobby to pick up? THe new form of art thing might be fun though..uh, not on good terms wwith family, but thats not the point. Can you think of anything off the top of your head that could be fun?
Well, you're an artist, aren't you? That's why you're here on deviantART, right? Whenever you need something to do, draw. If you need someone to talk to, do what you're doing now and hit the forums. There are lots of people here that would love to talk to you.
Um... well I'd like to try something entirely new, like textiles. I wish I could be one of those people that can fix and modify their own clothes, but I'm (sadly) kind of impatient and more likely just to ruin stuff like that. If you have old or cheap clothes, the internet and a basic sewing kit you'd probably be set to try something like that.
I also design tattoos I'll never have when I'm bored. Maybe you could look around different galleries on here? If you see something you'd really like to try (jewellry is another thing I wish I could do, but I never get around to scouting ebay for parts), maybe look into some basic tutorials and give it a go
(Also, roughly the same advice can be applied to plenty of hobbies, I guess)
