Heartbreak tears

The average person starts a romantic relationship, hoping that it will work out and possibly lead to something permanent – like marriage. But things switch up and go from 0 to 100 really fast. Life happens and you break up, but something else breaks with the relationship – your heart. Nobody is quite equipped to deal with heartbreak, especially during the first time it happens.

If someone you thought was the love of your life had broken your heart, this should resonate with you.

When your ‘significant other’ hit you up with the dreaded  “We need to talk” text
