Broken Heart


When people speak of broken heart, it's automatically associated with love, separation, rejection, betrayal and so on. While actually broken heart covers much wider aspects, such as life aspiration, achievement, dream, faith, etc. In wide aspect, broken heart is a result of a dream which fails to materialize. Thus, I suppose only those who able to dream will be susceptible to broken heart. But it won't stop us from dreaming, right?
People's reaction to broken heart are very diverse. Some choose to be left alone, weeping their sadness in emptiness. Others search the warmth and protection of other people like friends and family. In some cases, broken heart may lead to irresponsible hazardous actions like suicide or crime.
The most important thing is not how to avoid a broken heart, but how to heal it. Wise people said to mend a broken heart, one must start within oneself, and not by the help of others. We're the only one who know where it hurts. Some people try to avoid the pain, but actually realizing the pain is more effective in the healing process. Feel it and weep, let all the bad emotions fall through. Anyway, a good exercise always involves pain (at least that's what people who try to lose weight say...). I'm not in favor of self worship, but being a narcissist once in a while would be good. The next step is to love ourselves... tell ourselves that we're born in this world for a good reason, and no one can change it. Regain the pride, the passion, the willingness to move on...
Last but not least, get the support from others who care care for us. They're the one who're going to tell us how much we worth for them. Then.. start the whole new life all over again.

I'm a dreamer, but I'm not sure whether I have experienced broken heart...

Tania,

I am an older, married guy, living in the USA. I would like to know more about your life there in Singapore. I have three grown children who live close by, two of which are married, one of which is expecting our first grandchild (a granddaughter in fact)in June.

So nothing sinister about me. I have lived in the Philippines, and have visited Peru, Argentina and Kenya. I am just curious as to what Singapore is like to someone who lives there.

We can go off line if you like. My email address is bwcatlett@comcast.net.

Thanks, Bruce

Hi Tania,

Love can heal a broken heart...
Do not bow your head in sadness...
Keep your head up high and gaze at the stars...

Nice blog...

I've been in that state once before.
Believe me, that's the worst thing I've ever felt. I didn't think that I will pass through that stage but I did.
I guess the quote 'time will heal' is correct after all.

You're right about getting the support from others. But for me, the first support you should seek is from God. I don't know what I'd have become without Him.
