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.

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.

That's what I told her. That 'forever' still exists. :)

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.

Or she can focus on her dreams. The heart can rest for a while.

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.

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

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.

That's good that you have told her that . Sometimes , we have to give one a lashing or a reprimand so they can wake up from their being in that sad state . I hope by now , she has already gotten over that failed relationship . Sometimes what is best is for us to think of the things that that somebody has done badly at us , so we will get angry and come out from it instead . You still look good in the picture , even if your face is just the other half .
