Heartache is killing me.

I wonder why mind is not working well when the heart is totally broken. It keeps on receiving pains though it has options to not to feel that way. Is it heart more powerful than brain? I have everything that I wanted but except the thing that I wanted the most. My heart is aching, so arduous to control my mind that whatever way I will make that thing will not really be mine.

We think it's our heart that's aching, but it's actually our brain that sends impulse to feel the pain. It's in the brain where we feel love and pain. It's sad because no matter how we teach our heart, we can never let it follow what our minds wish for it to do. The part of the brain that allows these feelings to show and be felt are forced to feel the pain because that is really want is happening to us. We just have to let our minds think again and teach it to forget and move one and let time do it's magic for these feelings can never be taught in an instant.

Heart is damn powerful, I think yeah, stronger than brain. I too have experienced, the times, when I'm not in good mood and I'm not able to do anything I want, heart controls everything. Sometimes I wish, my heart wasn't like that.

we are on the same boat! It takes time to heal the brokenheart. I have been doing many things just to divert my attention but still it never skips aching! I have been trying so hard to forget everything that cause my heart from breaking but there are times it slips on my mind. I hate it. I really do hate it and sometimes I can't control myself from crying. It is not easy but we should give up. The pain will end soon. Very soon!

Heartache is like toothache, and it affects our entire body. It will pass in time but the phase is not easy. You need to step and move forward. You need to fight that feeling that is why the brain is above the heart because it is still the brain that commands our body. Take break, breathe and relax, it will take time but at least you are stepping out of the dark.

hello there. my friend, first and foremost, i'd like you to know that i know and have already gone through what you are feeling right now. during those times, i didn't care for myself and unable to perform well at my job, my life sucked for almost a month. there were times that my stomach lurches, i starved yet my mind refused to eat, it seemed that my chest/heart ache was more painful than what my stomach felt at those times. i lost pounds unintentionally, lost myself, almost gave up everything just because of that one person. until one day i realized why should i give myself up for somebody who didn't give importance to what we used to have? my friend, there are a lot of more things in life that's worth being focused at. do not pay attention to that part of your life which you knew for yourself might destruct your own plans in the future. focus on your own goals. don't you ever believe in the saying that the heart is more powerful than the mind 'cause it never was. remember that it isn't your heart that causes your chest pain, it is your mind, everything's run by your own brain, your own mind. your own thinking. rid yourself from the past, detach yourself and learn from it. make that person realize that you were supposed to be that person she should've fought for. build up your spirit. it's all about mind over matter, dude! keep your chin up.

The "heart" as you are describing it comes from the brain. The heart has no way of feeling things. I get what you are saying, but I just wanted to point that out. The human brain is capable of some weird things. Such as a woman that has totally convinced herself she is pregnant and she really believes it, but she is not pregnant, lactating. The brain is a mystery. Some people say that "Love" is just a chemical imbalance necessary for procreation. Who knows. I'm a firm believer of time heals all wounds, so good luck, hope you get to feeling better.

We feel from our heart, and that is why when it hurts, the mind could not cope up with it, unless you try to control your mind with positivity thus creating a sensible and rational approach to your heart problems, lol! I agree as above, in time you would be able to go through what you're undergoing right now, and hopefully someone would come along and replace the pain with happiness and contentment.

I know how you feel. I have felt the same way. I know I cannot do anything to help you mend you broken heart, but the only thing I can do is to tell you that it does end - the pain does end. So just hang in there. Though you may feel now that there's no more hope in you finding love again, the feeling will end. Someday you would not remember how the hurt feels like. Just give yourself the chance to feel happy again instead of all the 'drama' your mind and heart are feeling right now. Hold on. The best thing you could do is to stop thinking about talking about your heartache, start counting the good things that happen to you (I do that daily), and just enjoy your age because time passes quickly - don't cry too much, the wrinkles might come faster. You don't want to look older than you are when you find the right one. Smile! It's the best jewelry you can wear. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!
