Heartache is dangerous

Heartache is dangerous

I read somewhere recently that the older you get the harder it is to get your heart broken…because every time someone breaks your heart they also break open all the old wounds, and those heartaches are compounded until, after many heartbreaks, we’re left consumed and overcome by it, the echoes of all those painful moments, the disappointments, the loss, that one person breaking our hearts (again) becomes 5, 10, 20 such experiences, becomes all the pain of our lives in a single stroke, becomes the single voice of all those who have hurt us. And that much heartache is dangerous.
