Tearing down a Heart-Wall can make a big difference in your ability to experience love, for Valentine’s Day and the rest of your life
Valentine’s Day is a time for celebrating love, but what if you have lost someone you love? Heartbreak is not just an expression for the strong emotions we feel surrounding loss. It is a very real condition that can damage your health and even lead to premature death.
You may have heard about a study from the UK a few years ago that found that bereavement doubles a person’s chances of dying of a heart attack or stroke. You can probably remember a time in your life when you thought your heart was going to break. That sensation may have felt like an elephant was sitting on your chest, or that you couldn’t breathe. These are common physical sensations that result when your heart — the core of your being — is suffering from a deep trauma.
