Who didn't experience heartbreak?

My sister broke up with her long time boyfriend of seven years and she was a wreck. For the first few weeks, social media was her outlet. Posting stuff which intentionally (or not) pointed out her being jilted. I advised her against doing so. A heated conversation climaxed when I told her pointblank that the world doesn't care about her heartache. At all. Instead she just made herself a laughingstock. She cried buckets and I offered her a virtual hug. I did experience heartbreak. Many times. And I was even more pathetic than my sister. But of course I won't tell her that. I just wish that she will come out of this tragedy in one piece.

Two of my sisters (the younger ones) divorced after their 7 year itch! (For your information, lots of people also moving house after 7 yrs). Number 7 must have some significance since it was used quite a bit in the Bible too... (Sad, hearing about your sister's heartbreak. There must be a better Mr Right coming her way, tell her to be ready!)

What's this 7 year itch?

@sol_cee There is a strong belief that couples tend to break up after the one year itch, or 3 year itch, or the MOST COMMON one, 7-year itch... It is the time when couples get so sick of each other, and can't bear with each other's faults any more. The belief is, if one could get over that hurdle (that 7-yr itch), the marriage could be considered as smooth sailing from then (until they meet other minor ones ten-yr itch, 15-yr itch, etc).

Heart broken, frustrations, disappointments... people nowadays chose social media to air out their pain. What happened to serious girl talks with girlfriends?

No more serious girl talks where we plot a cold bloody end for the lowly guy who hurt our girl friend.

It is best not to expose our personal pain on the net, one never knows where it will end up.

I'm glad your sister has a wiser sister like you. Using the social media as outlet for heartaches will not do her any good.

I think most of the persons at one point in life would experience it. And how they cope up is different. Though it's very difficult to come out of a long break up. After a break up, the more the person cries the more the person becomes weak.

Many reasons l do not care about Facebook.People going there to announce their sadness/happiness.Come on, no one cares,people have their issues to deal with,they dont go crying in facebook. Im NOT active privately on facebook and don't care about it, but l do go look from outside (like looking from a window outside in)to see what people are talking about.Saw my sister`s message that her husband is having an affair and i thought *grow up no one gives a hoot. Another time l saw my cousin just broke up with her boyfriend, she kept going on and on about it and l thought what a sad lonely world we are living in,what happened to sharing your heartache with a friend who cares.

FB is her way of dealing with it. We all handle heartbreak differently. Maybe she needs for her family and friends to help her through it. She is hurt and reaching out. She will be fine. It just takes times. Seven years is a long time to just get over.

It could really break her heart because they had been in a relationship for 7 years! Yes, you are right when you advised her not to post about it in social media. There's lots of trolls there!

Oh, your poor sister. Seven years is a long time. I agree though, social media is not the best outlet. She would be better off just pouring things out in private emails and phone calls to her closest friends. Facebook is just one big audience and the best thing you can do for yourself is put on a dignified face and not let them all see how you're hurting, because it only invites gossip and rumor-spreading and people taking sides, which often turns ugly and makes an already tough situation worse. I hope in time she will feel stronger.

Well, perhaps you did give her that advice to save her from having to endure even more suffering. Constantly mentioning something makes it even harder for one to heal, I believe.

It is really hurtful at first but time will come that it will heal her wounds brought by heartbreak.
