  • It changed me in how I look at relationships and what I do to keep a gf/wife. I know it takes work, i. e. Romance, flowers, quality time, surprises, (anything to show her I still love her). I know not to neglect her, I know not to take her for granted, and I know that I need to keep her happy. I need to share in doing house chores. I've learned a lot and hope I can keep my promise to being there for her.

  • I am slowly dying. Lost interest in things I used to enjoy. Have become isolated in my room. Having problems concentrating on my studies. It made me stop believing in eternal love. All the promises broken, made me lose trust. The self confidence and self esteem are down to zero. And I've stopped believing in men, especially those from my own ethnicity. That's what it has done to me.

  • I have realized "Expectations" hurts us the most. throughout our daily lives the most element that ends up hurting is our own expectations. so i have learnt to lower my expectations reasonably to avoid such heartbreak as it would be no one's fault but my own. this was a positive change for me.

  • heartbreak taught me never depend on someone else to make me happy.
    a real relationship happens when two people are happy with their lives as they are before they meet the other person, they don’t need someone else to be happy. and when these two independent people come together they realize that they may be happy alone, but this person gives them something to look forward to everyday of their life.

    • That is so true! You can NEVER rely on others to make you happy. Sad thing is, I just learned that today.

    • @Agirlwithalemon
      don't worry, you still young and it's never too late to be happy.

    • True. True. :3

  • Heartbreak has changed me to the point, not to become obsess with
    someone cause i found out in hard way that it can lead to something
    serious such as legal action.

  • It's made me lose confidence and become reclusive. I guess the only thing I can think of that is positive is I guess I feel empathy for others that have had their hearts broken.

  • Yes it certainly does. I have always said the Heart is NOT a Bone, it doesn't break. It is a strong muscle that is flexible and will heal with time. That still is my philosophy but I faced heart break in my life finally, and I have to say that even time doesn't always work. Having your heart handed to you on a plate SUCKS! That feeling that you ask yourself, why wasn't I good enough, what did I do wrong, what could I have done differently? It all makes us more leery, weary, and cynical to some extent. But at the end of the day, sometimes you can do everything you can to change it, and in the end you didn't do anything at all. It was the other person. So you change because you take the pain of it all and turn it into a lesson in strength and character. I am working on it, my motto is HOPE (hold on pain ends) . Here is a MY TAKE about it. Maybe I will write another one longer to expand on this issue. Thanks for the great question, keep them coming...

  • I don't trust men for the most part. I got used a lot. Not necessarily sexually, but they have a way of making me feel like I'm not important to them and they don't value. Honestly, I just need the male sex to stay away from me when it comes to dating. At this point, I simply don't trust them. I don't believe most of them have a heart or a soul for that matter for dating. Friends is fine, but more than that is a sign that they just want sex.

    • I agree with you sadly it's true. All they want is sex, and once they've had enough... they cast you away like nothing.

  • I've been weaning a broken heart since Tuesday. It honestly does suck, but I learned not to put my happiness in the hands of another. I feel like I don't ever walk away from a heart break, or any situation in fact, without taking something from it. And I'm glad. I really learned something that is needed throughout life. :)

  • I just watched a video on Facebook, about a girl who was given a doll with a fake leg because she had one. I was crying so much. I realize all people are worthy of getting a doll or whatever it is you are after no matter your looks.

  • yeah girl, of course heartbreak has changed me in several ways. I go more into detail in a mytake I coincidentally wrote just yesterday afternoon but, in a nutshell, I've become more patient, more understanding, and more aware of redflags when they happen rather than just becoming aware of them after the fact.

  • It has made me wiser and less naive. I know now that people do lie and are very good at it too, sometimes you don't always know someone as well as you think...
    I am less trustworthy, I still trust people to an extent but I pay a lot more attention to what they say and do in order to see if they contradict themselves.

    I am a lot tougher than I was before, I won't date anyone who doesn't treat me with respect and actually make an effort.
    All of my experiences have given me a confidence boost, because I now know I have to look after myself first and the right guy will then come along and make me a priority in his life 😊
