These brokenhearted quotes and sayings will give you much to think about.
Love is the most beautiful thing you can find, but it never comes with guarantees. The same person who means the world to you can leave you shattered, without any words or even the interest to speak to you ever. Someone who said that you meant the world to them, could change into a total stranger quickly. Almost everyone has experienced a broken heart. Just like love can be the most beautiful thing, a broken heart can be the most painful thing you could ever experience.
Relationships bring with them a certain level of risk. It is also one of the most difficult pains to heal. If someone breaks your heart, it can be a very difficult transition to feeling good again. Here are some famous broken heart quotes and sayings that might help you, or someone you know, understand what it feels like.
