Getting your heart broken feels a bit like getting shit on by an elephant, getting hit by a school bus or getting punched in the gut over and over and over again.
Heartbreak sucks dick, but it's also an important learning experience.
You find out how strong and resilient you can be and you're bound to make a few mistakes you can learn from too.
Did you torture yourself by lurking on your ex's instagram? Did you blame yourself for something that was beyond your control?
Perhaps you isolated yourself? Did you remain friends even though it hurt? Did you act in a self-destructive way?
