As human beings, we are supposed to experience heartbreak sometime in our lifetime; when we realize the sand of time has drained away our mother’s youth; when we become an outsider, seeing our beloved suffering a lot of pain; when we are about to touch the summit of success but fail in the very end.
Author, playwright, and poet Oscar Wilder has written, “The heart was made to be broken.”
Yes, a heart can be broken! But I believe that it can be healed. I also believe heartbreak is what makes us bolder when reaching important decisions and wiser when contemplating letting go of some things.
