  • Life if filled with risks and opportunities.

    I see it no different than being afraid to cross the street because a car might run you over. You then also miss out on everything beyond that street you are afraid of crossing.

    Personally I think people are too afraid of emotional pain. And I thinks it's because many run away from them and develop a fear from them and also feel like feelings is like an external force inflicted upon them.

    If people would embrace emotions and understand the true meaning of unconditional love then things as "heartbreak" would be a non issue.

  • It is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all.

    I know this from experience and even though I am in pain everyday from it, I wouldn't trade what I had for anything. I'll find love again someday, until then it is simply fuel for my writing/poetry.

  • My path is to be divine. I'm broken already as I am, no need to also rip me apart. Besides today in some societies girls think because of the fact, that they are girls, they must be worshiped and all by males. Also it's all somehow linked to money in some way. There is no true love around me. For all the non-stereotypical women I have respect, which believe in gender equality and/or work on themselves and wouldn't betray for one day without money.

    That does not mean I do not love at all. I love certain things such as my hobbies and my favorite series, certain meals, my little dog. I don't hate. I just get past trouble in the best efficient way and forget about it.

    This Divinity brings me victory one day. I know it will be worth it. I will emerge soon. I believe in myself!

  • I don't think love exists. Even if it does the pain some people possess is stronger than a heartbreak. Love is an illusion created by society nothing more nothing less. They created it to hide the pain in their hearts.

  • I did the latter for my entire life. Two years ago I was finally miserable enough to try to *end* my life.

    I've since met someone who has come to mean a great deal to me. It's had it's ups and downs - when it's good, you're happier than you'll have ever been while single, and when it's bad it's just as intese, but I wouldn't trade it now for anything.

  • To risk heartbreak.
    I know I'd be miserable to never have loved or have been loved in return. I'd of course be quite depressed in the case of heartbreak too but at least through trial and error, I'll eventually meet someone with whom I can make it work. Alternative being a lifetime of solitude, nobody to come home to, nobody to cuddle with care for, or support each other when the going gets rough?

    No thanks. No pain, no gain.

  • Tough one. Risk heartbreak is my choice I guess, because I wanna experience love at least once. But, if I gotta be honest, if I got heartbroken once, I'd probably be too scared to put my heart out there again, and I'd probably end up avoiding that that love shit to not risk heartbreak again and to protect myself.

  • I would give it my all. Life is meant to be lived, whether happy or sad, at least you can hold your head up knowing you made the effort.
    Plus, rejection promotes growth and gives experience. Playing it safe and waiting your whole life is a waste of time and not much help in emotional growth.

  • To never be loved. I'm experiencing heartbreak right now and it completely tears you apart. The pain is unexplainable. I used to be so strong before getting in a relationship, ow all i can ever do is think about him. I'd play it safe. That way you know you're never gonna get hurt however, it could be argued that we only have one life to experience everything so why not love because you never know... it may lead to a few hiccups in th relationship which may hurt but may not necessarily cause heartbreak.

  • I've experienced heartbreak. Wouldn't wish it on anyone. That said, I'm not sure if I'd choose differently if had the choice to do it again. I feel like you live and you learn. I've yet to experience real love (if it exists) but I think I'd like to.

  • You should always give love a chance. If there is heartbreak, it wasn't meant to be. Taking that chance on wether or not you will get your heart broken is just life. You live and learn.
