I Know What Heartbreak Is

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,034 People

    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...

    I thought I knew pain,

    in all its agony, its angles, edges. But heart-break is whole other ball game. By falling in love with someone, I not only put their happiness first, but I jeopardized mine by giving them all they needed to break my soul into two. I would lie on the floor, crying for hours...

    I've experienced it shortly

    after expericing betrayal. All of my significant others have left me for others and yet I'm always described as "the best girlfriend" I'm told heartbreak is a life lesson but what's it's trying to teach me?

    So here is my story. It isn't easy to share

    because I am not only heart broken but also the source of heartbreak and I feel like a victim and like perpetrator at the same time. I married and thought this was the right thing to do because at my age all of my friends married. My partner had been with me for over 9 years...

    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...

    I know how it feel when your heart is broken

    but please get over yourself. I don't understand why people stay crying for months. The dude or women left you, get over it!! He or she not crying for you They had moved on or trying to move on. You should do the same. I hate when people say "I loved him or her, he or she was...

    it's when you've been married 21 years,

    and you make a mistake (not adultery) and are denied the opportunity to fix the relationship. I lost my wife, 3 kids, and my home, all in one day. It's 5 months later, and nothing has changed.

    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...

    I left a really great guy.

    :( He did nothing wrong.. Instead I was battling with my own issues of fear, depression, and wanting to be happy with myself. He had it all together. He was considerably older than I. I was 18 and he was 24 when we began dating. I loved him I did. I left because I wanted to...

    Heartbreak is that empty pit in your chest,

    the tears that flow freely, the heart beat in your throat, the desolation, the begging and pleading, the anger, the depression, then back to pleading, a little more anger and depression. Its the tears that refuse to stop. Its knowing your not good enough when really you are.

    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...

    Heartbreak is terrible,

    it changes a person from this sweet person to this evil person. People shouldn't play with others emotions.

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

    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 hurt began with you.

    ..I always liked to tell the story from the positive angle but the truth is ... I was shattered when we broke up...it appeared as if I took it so well because I didn't know how to be angry with you...and I felt too defeated too try to stand up for myself... I felt it was easier...

    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...

    Amd not only in a loving relationship.

    .. hearts get broken when people don´t care about hurting your sensitivity... even if they had told you how much you meant to them, they won´t hesitate to hurt you when it comes to getting the truth about them...they show their real face.

    leaving some one you totally love behind
