If you know Game of Thrones, there is a powerful scene in the first season where Robert Baratheon is talking about Lyanna Stark and says something like, "And Seven Kingdoms could not fill the hole she left behind." That's a hardcore broken heart. It's the type of one that someone could fail to recover from for the rest of their lives.But the problem as I see it is that he had no dream after Lyanna. He didn't even seem to want the Seven Kingdoms, just revenge. So after he got it, he had no real goal or dream to pursue. He became this whoring drunk of a king reminiscing about the days he used to be a warrior. So he had no big dream to motivate him into action and fill that empty heart.
That's a fictional character, of course, but I think it's true enough. If you got to the point where you revolved your life goals around spending the rest of your life with this girl, then it's like the rug if swept under your feet and there's nothing to motivate you after a break-up. So you have to fill the empty heart as I see it with some new life purpose, some new goal -- something to inspire you to work towards.
