    Many Forms Of Heartbreak

    When I was in primary school, the other kids shut me out and picked on me because I was a nerd. They laughed at my secondhand clothes(my parents were poor), they hid my stuff(preferably my books), they hit me with sticks. I never had any friends. As I'm typing it out it doesn't...

    Heartbroken

    Heartbroken. How does one describe the symptoms of being heartbroken. Is it a feeling of pain, emanating from one's body. The dullness inside your chest which sometimes feels as if it is being twisted, spearing your insides? The weariness which fills each part of your body...

    There's so many categories regarding heartbreak

    I wasn't sure where to post but I guess I'll settle for this one. I would prefer to have someone who's able to empathize instead of just telling me advice. If you're unable to say anything kind I suggest you take your negativity elsewhere since it's not wanted or needed. As of...

    The Feeling

    Heartbreak. It's more than just a pain in your chest. It's forgetting how to survive. You're not sure how to breathe except for the moments you spend sobbing. Food is out of the question, cause you know you'll just throw it back up. Sleep is uneasy as your dreams wander. It...

    I loved a man here at EP enough to want to marry him one day. But he loved his ex-EP girlfriend and all her friends here (who are also his friends), far more. He was not able to distinguish between real life and real love, and internet flirtations with these women. I didn't ask...

    Just found out a guy likes me

    and it breaks my heart because I really care for him and it makes me sad to break his heart because I haven't gotten any feelings for him and I don't want to lead him on. He's such an amazing guy and he understood me so well.

    My boyfriend hurts me emotionally

    and it makes me want to cheat on him because I feel he does it purposely to hurt me cause he doesn't love me anymore. I feel he just wants to take advantage of my feelings just like everyone else.

    The distance sound of a heart shattering into a million pieces. That heart, my heart-- It's the worst pain. As if no one cares for you, even if you have people there to comfort you, to support you. It doesn't feel like it. It's just cold, and lonely. Numb. It isn't easier, it's...
