A 'broken heart" is a figure of speech in English. <br />
It arises from the fact that in deep and recent grief or loss there is often a physical sensation of pain or emptiness in the chest.<br />
Some people can also develop depression out of grief, in which the thinking can be temporarily distorted. <br />
However, neither the mind nor the heart are "broken."<br />
Grief fades, and eventually a more realistic perception emerges, <br />
which is when the real learning and the start of acceptance and maturity emerges.
same in French : 'broken heart' = 'coeur brisé'..... :(
I am happy to see/assume you have never had yours broken...<br />
Because the moment you do...you will learn the answer to this question :-(<br />
I wish you the very best
a broken heart is the ache and the hole in your chest when your hurt so bad you don't know how to comprehend what happened.
Broken, I do not know, but in pain, yes !
That dull, ceaseless weight crushing down on your chest... if you had ever lived it, you would need not ask. It is aptly named, I fear.
