Life In Heartbreak

If you’ve ever been through any type of crisis in your life; especially having to experience complete and utter heart break, it definitely hurts like no other. 
The most terrible thing about that is how much one doesn’t realize it does until it happens to them. In all honesty, it has happened to me several times in my lifetime. To be completely honest, it happened most recently and I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it. See, it never turns out when the heart thinks it’s ready to get it crushed over and over. I guess, one could say it’s a part of life.
 Unfortunately, this happens all the time, not just to me either. 
So, I believe that love is just some emotion that people tend to feel when they think it’s convenient. 
It’s not really real. 
What people put in movies and story books aren’t real their fantasy. 
It’s funny how everything you ever believed in is complete utter bull. 
I tell you, people believe in love like they believe in Santa clause.  
So that being said, it is settled; love is nothing rather than some silly childhood fairy tale. People say that you find the “right one”, and “your soul mate” is out there. “Love” and “Destiny” is something sacred like marriage. 
How can that be when most marriages end in divorce and in relationships there is domestic violence and women become pregnant out of wedlock? Lastly, no one wants to say this, but, complete grief and pain only come from love. So, I think I answer the question about whether to tell someone how you really feel about them. So, if you’re thinking about it, don’t do it. You don’t want to end up like me, a mess. You are only hurting yourself. Believe me, that’s what happens. 
Reason why is, when rejection hits you square in the face and you feel your eyes well up and ready to burst into a flood of tears, you then want to hit yourself, because you know in that sudden moment, that what you thought was real or could’ve been is in ruins and there’s no way you can ever get over the heart ache of living with that truth that you kind of already knew within yourself was not reality or even ever possible to begin with. 
So,  trust me on this, don’t say a word if you’re feeling a certain way towards someone; because it will only end up in complete heart break.

    I am sorry you have gone through this heartbreak, no words can truly describe what you are feeling. I have had my dissapointment but was fortunate to meet my wife 20 years ago. She always said love is not a noun it is a verb and that has stuck with me. I actively love her each day. I think if you know what is important to you, you are more likely to recognize it when it arrives. I hope you will stay open to the possibility of loving and being loved. It truly is grand and you deserve to enjoy it.
