Having watched so many films, I am yet to see a movie fully display what heartbreak feels like. I’ll be the one to tell you there’s no pain in this world like a broken heart. When you hurt your arm, the doctor will tell you exactly how long the pain will last, but with heartbreak? The horrible feeling in your chest or stomach could be weeks, months and sometimes years. Have whatever you want, shop till you can’t anymore, but nothing heals a broken heart more than time; unfortunately, sometimes time makes it harder to cope with. To love something or someone and not have it/ them anymore is the most gut-wrenching feeling in the world.
In such a fast paced world, to make the next pound/ dollar, to get the latest car, bag, the best job in the world etc., there’s nothing more beautiful than to love and feel loved, because who else will you share it with? Experiencing love is what makes us human and to not have that particular person in your life not share your fortunes with anymore hurts because what follows is the loneliness that consumes you, but no one tells you that. Instead you’ll hear the echoes of your friends saying ”Get over it”
Whether you like it or not, you will go through the five stages of grief. It comes down to whether you allow yourself to feel them or not. Were you thinking to block it out? Good luck. The sleepless nights, the uncontrollable crying spells, the bargaining, the anger, the anxiety, depression… they will find you. Talking about heartbreak isn’t me trying to inflict fear on you. Like the lion king, this is the circle of life.
Heartbreak hurts. It’s painful, and sometimes it happens to the best of us; the only way to overcome it is to talk through it and hope it doesn’t last forever because one day you’ll find that you’re okay.
Now we’ve briefly covered that, are you ready to talk about why love hurts?
