"When people say "heart break" they don’t just mean to say that their feelings go hurt; they mean that inside of them, something breaks, quite literally. There’s a true, deep, heart numbing physical pain, like a pulse through your body. It’s like the way adrenaline feels when it shoots through your veins, only this doesn’t give you extra human strength or energy, it defeats you and turns you into nothing. It’s not only a physical pain, but an emotional, mental, spiritual pain that strips you of every protective barrier you’d ever built around yourself; it leaves you naked and raw and every little thing hurts, even the small things. And you don’t want anyone to see how truly weak you are; especially the person who made you that way. There is no way to truly fix a broken heart, unless it’s the unfortunate case where the one who broke you is the only one who can fix you. Those who have been broken; we just collect the pieces that we do still have, the pieces that the other person doesn’t still have, and we move on and we make sure that we never trust, never hope, never love so easily again. Because pain changes people, and all we can do is let it. When someone says they’ve had their heart broken, never take that for granted. And yeah maybe we do feel weak because of this ungodly pain, but those brave enough can find strength in pain itself."
