    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.

    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...

    Heatbreak

    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...

    It Shouldnt Be Like This

    Although I am telling to my friends

    that I am numb and don't fall in love , the fact still remains that I am still broken-hearted and that is what made me so bitter in life 💔💔

    What if he/she fought for you but you are too unsure and too scared of your demons that you can't let anyone see? What would you do if you have to live with these choices? The fact that you let go of possibly that one great love of your life. Yep. Randomly rambling and...

    Heartbreak... Drives people crazy.

    Lose your complete sanity. Forget what happiness feels like, drown yourself with the pain, doubt and bitterness.

    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...

    Sometimes you need to remind yourself

    that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care...

    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...
