    A broken heart is not felt

    when your tears fall in the moment of pain or remembering the pain. A broken heart is felt when you close your heart to shut off the pain only to have it emerge in waves and waves of unexplained emotion that no other part of your body reacts, only your heart. Your heart chooses...

    Don’t trust too much,

    don’t love too much, don’t care too much because that ‘too much’ will hurt you so much!

    A broken heart to me isn't just about a break

    up...my heart was irrevocably broken when a person I loved deeply and unconditionally passed. It has been a long time now, but the crack in my heart remains. It will never heal. Hurts every single day still.......

    Several Times

    Over my lifetime I had it happen several times and by several people.  I really don't want to let it be know by whom and how many times since I sometimes wonder if they secretly look at what I say and do when not addressing them directly.

    I fell in love a girl

    and when I admitted my emotion she rejected me and told other people that a girl was crushing on her (I'm in the closet cause people are homophobic).

    It's like having an open wound.

    In time it will heal but will leave you a scar. This scar will constantly remind you of the pain. This pain if you choose to ignore will make you stronger. It's up to you, if you choose it to make you or break you.

    Far Away

    I love the song "Far Away" by Nickelback.  It's so touching and loving.  Unfortunately it's a painful reminder of all the empty promises, lies, and the broken heart he left me with.  Hopefully there will be a day when I can listen to this song again...

    My Broken Heart Story... He Chose Nothing Over Me

    I'm sorry this is long... but I would really appreciate the feedback. I'm desperately seeking help or advice.   I met my ex, I'll call him J, in kind of a unique way.  Through his parents.  I played recreational softball and met his mother and father about two years ago...

    I just realized that 'feel good with someone'

    and 'love someone' are different meanings. He said to me "I feel good to be with you, talking to you." 5years later and now He say the same words before Exactly, good for him. Bad for me. In fact, a few months ago, He asked me back after I had told him I like him "what do you...

    Many Times

    I think it's because I let too much in too fast. I do everything with so much love and compassion that when I get kicked it hits and hurts even more. Broken hearts mend but I think a piece always stays a part of the person who broke it.
