When you break up with your boyfriend or husband, can you sleep good at night?

Kiss godd-bye - kissing for the last time, the brush off.

After breaking up with the one you love is that old song true " Breaking up is hard to do" can you go to sleep and sleep like a baby or do you cry yourself to sleep?

After I broke up with my first husband I cried myself to sleep every night for the longest time.It took me a couple of years but i finally got over him.Now I am with my second husband and am much happier then I was with my first husband.

Breaking Up and Sleepless Nights - Being broken hearted is not easy, especially at night when sleeping. One finds it difficult to go to sleep because of the pain and the hurt. It is good to have a good cry when one is broken hearted, and often is done before going to sleep, or when everyone is not watching. Crying helps, and so it has to be encouraged if only to make the one who is broken hearted to go through the healing process fast.
Crying helps, so it's ok to cry before sleeping. I have tried this a few times with a past bf, and always, at night I toss in my best, can't really get to sleep at once. Of course, I have shed a lot of tears before I finally sleep soundly. In the morning, I am often refreshed and felt a lot better compared to the night before that. When one is broken hearted, getting to sleep is a major problem. But I know of other people who can sleep through a heart problem, but more often than not, I cannot sleep at once. Sleep is a problem really when it comes to affairs of the heart.
