"BROKEN HEARTED"
« on: September 18, 2008, 12:37:54 AM »
A broken heart (or heartbreak) is a common metaphor used to describe the intense emotional pain or suffering one feels after losing a loved one, through death, divorce, moving, being dumped, or other means. It is an extremely old and widespread metaphor that dates back to at least the time of the Ramayana where it was commonly used.[1]

Heartbreak is usually associated with losing a spouse or loved one, though losing a parent, child, pet, or close friend can also "break one's heart". The phrase refers to the physical pain one may feel in the chest as a result of the loss. Although the heart obviously is not harmed by the feeling, there is a condition (appropriately known as Broken Heart Syndrome) where a traumatizing incident triggers the brain to distribute chemicals that weaken heart tissue.".[citation needed
[edit] Philosophical views
For many people having a broken heart is something that may not be recognized at first, as it takes time for an emotional or physical loss to be fully acknowledged. As Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson states:

Human beings are not always aware of what they are feeling. Like animals, they may not be able to put their feelings into words. This does not mean they have no feelings. Sigmund Freud once speculated that a man could be in love with a woman for six years and not know it until many years later. Such a man, with all the goodwill in the world, could not have verbalized what he did not know. He had the feelings, but he did not know about them. It may sound like a paradox — paradoxical because when we think of a feeling, we think of something that we are consciously aware of feeling. As Freud put it in his 1915 article The Unconscious: "It is surely of the essence of an emotion that we should be aware of it.' Yet it is beyond question that we can 'have' feelings that we do not know about."[2]


In classical references
This biblical reference highlights the issues of pain surrounding a broken heart:
Psalm 69:20 Insults have broken my heart and left me weak, I looked for sympathy but there was none; I found no one to comfort me.
In this Psalm, King David says that insults that have broken his heart, not loss or pain. It is also popular belief that rejection, major or minor, can break an individual's heart. This heartbreak can be greatly increased if rejected by a loved one or someone whom you respect.

In Shakespeare's King Lear Lear dies of a broken heart, amongst other causes, in Act 5 Scene 3:
EDGAR : He faints! My Lord, My Lord!
KENT: Break heart; I prithee, break!
In many legends and fictional tales, characters die after suffering a devastating loss (see above - King Lear). But even in reality people die from what appears to be a broken heart. Broken heart syndrome is commonly blamed for the death of a person whose spouse is already deceased, but the cause is not always so clear-cut. The condition can be triggered by sudden emotional stress caused by a traumatic breakup, the death of a loved one, or even the shock of a surprise party.[3] Broken Heart syndrome is clinically different from a heart attack because the patients have few risk factors for heart disease and were previously healthy prior to the heart muscles weakening. The recovery rates for those suffering from "broken heart syndrome" are faster than those who had heart attacks and complete recovery to the heart was achieved within two weeks.[4]


Symptoms
The symptoms of a "broken heart" can manifest themselves through psychological pain but for many the effect is physical. Although the experience is regarded commonly as indescribable, the following is a list of common symptoms that occur:

A perceived tightness of the chest, similar to an anxiety attack
Stomach ache and/or loss of appetite
Partial or complete insomnia
Anger
Shock
Nostalgia
Apathy (loss of interest)
Feelings of loneliness
Feelings of hopelessness and despair
Loss of self-respect and/or self-esteem
Medical or psychological illness (for example depression)
Suicidal thoughts (in extreme cases)
Nausea
Denial
Fatigue
The thousand-yard stare
Constant or frequent crying
A feeling of complete emptiness

Sometimes, I become weary and naiisip ko din na mag-give up na lang in case nga na mangyari ito...  to spare myself a broken heart. Kaya lang paano ba ang mag-give up sa isang tao na sobrang espesyal para sa iyo? Sabi nga parang ambush lang ang love, anywhere, anytime pwede ka nitong maging target. At kapag ito ay dumating, wala ka nang kawala. Sabi nila “love makes the world go round”; siguro nga totoo kasi nakakahilo siya eh. Nakakalasing din siya dahil parang alak na napapamanhid ang katawan mo at natutuliro ang utak mo. Ang hirap ano?

we have our stories to tell about this. in my case perhaps the most heartbreaking was when my gf of 2+ years broke up with me. she has to choose between me or her family (chinese kasi). more than a year yun nung nakapag-moved on ako. it was hard. alak, yosi, weeds - eto ang mga kaharap ko nun. then i began to express what i feel through writing. nakabuo ako ng maraming compilations nun. kahit sa likod ng mga kaha ng yosi na nauubos ko, dun ko sinusulat kung anuman ang mga naisip ko: poems, articles, songs, etc. like what i wrote in one of my "down moments", "sometimes, love is like a party. you're riding in euphoria and ecstacy. but somewhere along that feeling of high, someone would say, 'party's over'..and the next thing you knew is you fell really, really hard."
