    Better To Have Loved And Lost?

    Hmmm I dunno.   I love him.  I learned so much about myself becuase of him.  He told me he believed in me.  He told me that chose me.  He built me up.  But unintentionally tore me down.  To not have loved him, would mean to not have learn what I was supposed to.  But...

    You actually can die from a broken heart.

    The chemicals that cause he feeling of depression are poisonous the the heart. In high enough amounts they can cause a heart attack. It's called takotsubo cardiomyopathy. It's named for the appearance of the heart as it occurs. It resembles a Japanese Octopus trap.

    What's Wrong With Me?!

    I said that I would die FOR you, not BECAUSE of you. There's a huge difference. Yet, I think I'm the one who needs to learn that lesson.
