I Feel As If My Heart Is Breaking

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 149 People

    People say that when your heart is broken,

    it's just a figure of speech, that your heart can't actually break. If that's the truth, why do I feel like I'm in physical pain, like I can't breathe and that my chest is collapsing in on itself? I wish that I could just let go but I'm so addicted to the pain you cause me.

    It's this immense feeling of suffocation.

    It brings you down no matter how strong you are or how strong you pretend to be. It kills you. From the inside, slowly, very slowly. And when you think it's finally so shattered it can't get worse. It gets worse. It hurts even more and before you know it, you are lying there...
