Dear Poll: Have You Ever Been Heartbroken?

If falling in love makes people deliriously happy, then getting your heart broken is emotionally shattering. And while there may be a lesson to be learned, truthfully I can’t really think of anything good about a broken heart. But alas, it is a part of life. So, have you ever had your heart broken?

ive had my heart broken badly. i still dont know what happened, or why he suddenly left. we never met, it was just phone convos and im-ing. whenever we werent online, we would be on the phone. and everything was going great, until something happened. i still dont know why he left. i didnt do anything wrong, i know it. i guess someone spread lies about me or something. he believes that stuff easily. i got hurt badly when he left. i dont know whether i was in love or not, but when he left, i felt dead inside. it was horrible. im over it, but i havent been happy though. i dont miss him anymore. and i found out a lot of lies about him. so i dont even feel sad that hes gone. but i would like to know what happened. though im okay with not knowing

I'm currently nursing a broken heart myself too. I loved him, still do but i got sick and tired of him treatin me like crap so i got out of it while i still had a little respect and dignity left for myself. Sure, im heartbroken but i'd rather have that than have a miserable life with him.

Well, I've learned that falling in love is about you, not about the other person. You will still have the ability to fall in love. Nobody can take that away from you. And although it may sound like a huge cop-out, in time this last tip will make sense, trust me. Forgiveness. Forgive yourself for all the wrong that you feel you may have done during the relationship, and then forgive the other person for any wrong you feel they did to you. Once you do that, a tremendous burden will be lifted from you, and you will find it a bit easier to move on. Only a bit, though.

Something good can always come from something negative. The mending process that takes place after a broken heart is often long and painful, especially in cases of unreciprocated love. But the strength you gain from the experience will last you a lifetime. And make you wiser in your future choices of a significant other.

yes, i've certainly been heartbroken, but i've managed to come out on the other end. right after college, i was engaged and then discovered that the guy was cheating on me, and i thought that my life was going to end. i didn't want to do ANYTHING - not eat, work, live, anything! i think that sometimes we need to have those horrible things happen so that we can figure out who's the best person for us and to see what we want. what doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?

As rough as it is to go through, I think everybody needs to have their heart broken... it teaches you so much about yourself and about life.

I have been heart broken a couple of times. Twice quite badly. The first time I moved 200 miles to get away from him and we continued behaving like gf/bf for a year and then I broke his heart. :/ The second time was when I broke up with my ex nearly a year ago. It's good now though and I'm over him. We're WoW'ing together at the moment. :p

My heart broke after my brother in law died. There are many reasons for the broken heart, but one of them wasn't because I was in love with him, but because I loved him and never realized it or told him. There is too much to this story, but after he died it broke my heart and everyone's heart in my family.

Yes, I've had my heart broken. I still think that my ex was my soul mate, but I've moved on with my life, and even have a new boyfriend so yeah..... it just wasn't meant to be. sigh* :( I hope I never go through that again. I'm making myself paranoid by just thinking about it.

I've been in love but when we broke up my heart wasn't broken.. cuz I did the breaking up because it wasn't working. I mean i'm emotionally crippled in other ways now but I have no idea what a broken heart feels like

Nope, never. My bf is the only person I've ever been with. I hope I never have to go through it.

I feel like I still have a broken heart from my ex. We broke up 2 years ago but it seems like every time I start to feel better something happens to set me back. I've even had another pretty serious relationship since we broke up and that didn't help either. I'm so frustrated. I really want to get over him and move on but I just can't seem to get over it completely.

the horrible part of the broken heart is feeling like you'll never get through it... and then making decisions based on that thought. unfortunately the only thing that really gets you through to the other side is to grit your teeth and bear it. ughsldkfjdsklfjsd it's a sickening feeling.
