"I feel nothing
I feel everything.
I don’t know which is worse."
No I am not “heartbroken” over a boy
Heartbreak is not limited to “a break up”. This type of aching does not signify missing a warm body to sleep next to, and it definitely does not belong to hand holding and romantic gestures. There are all types of hurt to be felt in this world. Sometimes having to go through these motions help you grow out of the tiny box you’ve attempted to fit into all your life. Sometimes having to deal with a different type of pain forces you to look with wider eyes. Sometimes your heart will hurt over feelings of self-failure, over the absence of a mother, or the loss of a pet. Maybe you got your heart broken over the rejection of a job, the denial of life insurance for your dad, and on some days, for no particular reason at all: your heart will just hurt. You can feel just as much as anybody else for any reason at all and you are completely, totally, and utterly entitled to it. Remember that (your) heartache can take on any identity and it will not amount to more or less when compared to anybody else’s.
