ICI Only people that have experienced it can relate to it. Because along with this type of pain comes a new understanding. All of a sudden you can relate and feel the pain that others have gone through or are currently experiencing. You now notice another heart breaking without a single word being said. So yes, it’s true that heartbreak changes people but a huge mistake to make is allowing it to harden your heart, build up walls and make you bitter towards people and the world. Instead, let it soften your hearts with compassion, teach you about others and yourself, and most importantly change your heart for the better.
