Really, truly feeling heartbreak is agonizing. I’ve seen people handle the death of a loved one or the collapse of their company they built from the ground up better than heartbreak. Our romantic relationship is often the nucleus of our life. With a solid romantic relationship, we can weather other tragedies like deaths of loved ones and collapses of companies much better. We pin so many hopes on a romantic relationship. It is to be the building block of many, many adventures and phases of life. And, it’s just so personal. Heartbreak feels like having the very core of your being rejected. When you lose a job, that company or boss didn’t really have access to the true, deeper layers of you. But when you lose a romantic relationship, that individual really got in there, and the loss is deeply felt. That’s why so many people choose to not feel heartbreak, but there’s no getting around it in the end. Here’s why it’s important to process heartbreak. Just find your ways to do so.
