Soothing Words for the Heartbroken

Updated on October 30, 2010

When we were children, days were so much more fun. We would cry, but there would hardly be any sorrow in our hearts. Those were the days, when our hearts were whole, and our lives belonged only to us.

By the time we end our lives as teens, we have already experienced our first loves, and more often than not our first heart breaks too. Only the lucky and blessed few manage to make their first love last a lifetime. So, if you are heartbroken currently, well, it is a ritual that almost everyone has to go through, to attain a state of maturity and mindset that makes you stronger and more courageous. When you fall in love for the first time in your life, you have no experience, and think love is only a happy feeling. Once you are heartbroken, you tend to become slightly more wary of love. Of course, it should not mean that you stop loving, just be a little more cautious about who you are falling in love with.

In this age of choice, our hearts break and, trust me, magically mend themselves several times. Being heartbroken is a very depressing feeling, making you lose all interest in life, and completely destroying your confidence. I have seen heart broken souls wander like the living dead, so lost in themselves and their memories. Yes, if your love is true and unconditional, this feeling is all the more deeper. There is little that words can do to change your state of mind, but over the ages, many wise words were said, that should soothe you. Here are some of them.

Sadness flies away on the wings of time, by Jean de La Fontaine.
This single quote is sufficient to almost summarize all human life. Time is indeed the greatest healer, and every thing passes with time. The happiest and saddest of days, both must pass, because we are mortal and are bound by time. If anything lasts, it only does in our hearts, as a fond memory. Trust me, when you have grown old and look back at your life, and remember your old partners, you will have no remorse about falling in love with them. It will only make you feel warm inside, and maybe your heart will still skip a beat for them.

The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt. by Max Lerner
Yes, life goes on despite everything. Hearts break, but they do not stop. And when you decide to push yourself to look at life with a fresh perspective, you have just turned more mature than others.

While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only irritates. You must wait till it be digested, and then amusement will dissipate the remains of it. by Samuel Johnson
Very true again. You must give yourself time. As I said earlier, time is the greatest healer. You must look deep inside yourself when you are heartbroken, experience the sorrow completely and fathom its depths. Only then can you escape it.

Well, those were some of them. Also, Gibran, an amazing poet once said, "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." I shall not say anything more, meditate on this saying, think deeply about it, and see what understanding you gain from it.
