  • Honestly the brain registers emotional pain no diffrently then physical. Its the same response. Then the fact that you invested so much into the other person only to lose it makes it worse.

  • Because you're basically grieving. Your body has the same reaction; you've lost a loved one and now you have to adjust to the change. It isn't easy. The first time I had my heart broken, I recovered in three months. But I never wanted to feel that pain again, because healing the first time was hard enough. Well, I got my heart broken again a couple years later, and as expected, it was ten times worse. My ex and I ended up getting back together, thankfully, but if we break up again I'm honestly not sure I could take it.

    It's hard being so affected by a person. It's scary being so vulnerable. But it's necessary if you're gonna be in a long term relationship. Love comes with risk, but when it works, it's worth it. Hang in there!

    • No need to be sarcastic at someone elses expense!! .👎

    • I wasn't. I was trying to be funny and make you laugh. Sorry

  • Something I found strangely comforting when I got totally shat on years ago were the words of a colleague, I was asking why as well and he said "that's just the way of the world man". That might not seem like a lot but if you think about it shit happens.. all the time.. everywhere to everyone.. what you're dealing with now is shit but it'll get better and you'll move on because that's the way of the world too.

  • because all feelings are thrashed away and your mind is trying to cope up with the pain and all the memories because they have to be forgotten.
