The anatomy of a heartbreak

Let anyone say anything, the pain of heartbreak is just as physical a sensation as being pricked by many needles. There is a stage where you can literally feel a crack like a fracture and an ache that makes you breathless and gasping for air. You feel an out of body experience where you are there and her not there, merely glimpsing yourself as a visitor. Emotions like dismay, depression, regret, self-pity run amok in your mind. All you want to do is to curl up into a ball and drop off the face of the earth.

And while all this is happening what you do instead is retire hurt but not before putting on a brave face, not betraying any emotions and pretending like nothing happened just now.

But things once broken are rarely ever the same. And these emotions will erupt every now and then unbidden, unsought and will extract their pound of flesh. You cannot suppress feelings and emotions, they are insidious and lurking in every corner of the psyche.

It’s a shame that we make it seem like the emotional ones are the weaker ones; it’s the ones who don’t show them that need help. After all if you are fighting emotions you are probably using up all your reserves. And one day there will be none left, and instead of the steady trickle of emotions you will be left with an avalanche that you won’t know what to do with.
