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 !
Physical hearts do feel - to have a heart attack feel at least as bad as being kicked in the chest by a horse.
If you're very excited, scared, stressed or angry, and you pay attention, you will be able to feel how fast and hard its beating.
Various parts of the body have specific feelings in response to particular emotions - this is true for all of us, but many of us haven't noticed and made the connections.
Broken heart is a metaphor for severe grief at the ultimate loss of or rejection by the object of romantic love, the beloved.
Its composed of intense dreams, excitement and desire that can never be fulfilled, and in rejection a badly bruised ego.
Yes it is taking place in the mind - but "broken mind" almost implies madness - yes we can be literally mad with love or grief - but generally not insane - it passes and we eventually return to normal.Its not as if we were made of china or glass.
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.
