They Say that One can Die of a Broken Heart

But usually they are referring to love of the romantic nature. I believe one can die of abuse. Abuse renders a person a broken heart. It makes one feel inferior. And sad. Do you think this can happen?

It could happen, but those with a broken heart have to look forward to and see who needs them. They have to fight to repair the heart no matter what because there is always someone out there who needs them.

That is so true Cindy..if someone doesn't want you, there is always someone else who will need you.

Yes, I think this can happen. If you lose the interest in life, you can die of a broken heart.

@Courage7 You become so depressed that you are not interested to continue to live.

I hope you're not feeling this way, Courage. If you (or someone you know) are, try to keep your perspective. How you feel today does not have to be indicative of how you will feel in the future. Things can get better. Even if you can only make baby-steps at times, and only surviving well and looking after yourself at others. Just keep moving forward. Re-consider the relationship if you are still in it. Talk to someone who you can trust and feel comfortable talking to, whether that be a friend, family, or a professional, such as a counselor, to help you work through things and make the right decisions.

Very well said Con. It is really a sad state of affairs when one is so beaten down that they no longer are sure which way to go.

@Courage7 Yes, terrible, and the worst thing to lose sight of is your perspective, as in feeling as though all hope is lost. It's just a horrible period, which will pass if you move in that direction. It might take time to work it out, but you/they will. It will also be especially difficult while the person causing the problems is still around and not getting better.

One may die because of heart broken. But in our reality life , most of us are strong enough to face it with time passing by.

Not if you can escape the abuser and go to a shelter, go one with life away from all that sh*t.
