Did you know that after an emotional breakup your body feels pain when seeing a photo of your ex?
Same it feels when you leave your favorite place, like selling your house, or losing your favorite shirt..
We love, we fall in love.. better said: FALL IN STUPID. Only when you are over your ears in love you do things you never would if you were "thinking normal"
What is that, anyways? Makes me laugh just thinking about it. We fall in stupid, though. You sit and reflect.
Why we pick the broken heart up, patch it up and then, here we go again. Looking for "love" a.k.a. the next one who will break it in more pieces than it was. The sense of belonging, maybe? The tingle you get in your stomach, or your toes, or wherever you feel it, can't be replaced. Or can it?
Food. It can do the trick. The fullness sensation can be a way!
That is what bodybuilders can say as well. Being in the gym, feeling the "sweet burn" of the muscle growing fixes everything. Then the result, the visual result, is pretty awesome! ;) check this guy out
A breakup does lots of damage if you've invested a lot of yourself in that relationship. Or it can do absolutely nothing, if all it was just a "fling". Men usually, (not all macho) get over a breakup easier. I say: MYTH!
also this video can explain it better: video that explains like WHOA!
I am not sure what advice to give for the ones that have broken hearts. Hold on to your sanity and don't do anything stupid. (really!) This too shall pass. Time is of the essence. :P Let it come and go. During the tic-tacs do something constructive. Fill your time with new activities or old ones. Find a new hobby. Go on a vacation. Find a support group. Meetup has interesting groups that seriously can fit any and everything you can think of.
