Adults are always ranking on us teenagers and young adults telling us, "Oh yeah, you'll have your heartbroken plenty of times," and in addition acting as if it's a good thing. I don't object to the comment as much as the attitude towards it, acting as if they think it's good for us to go through it.

well, the idea is, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. heartbreak tends to help people see reality for what it is, let go of childish delusions. this is definitely an American thing, in my opinion. i have never heard anything like this in my culture. if anything, i have heard the opposite. growing up, my mom really emphasized not ever giving a guy control of my heart, never losing my head over a guy. love makes people stupid and reckless. well. according to her. lol.1
