Complete lack of appetite has been my biggest takeaway true heartbreak happened to me. Pain in chest, loss of interest in life, everything was just very bland and I became disassociated with most things.

When the one person you put before yourself is no longer interested in your existence, life sucks. I was ghosted during the holidays and I thought about her nonstop for several months. I've moved on and realized what the problems were, but at the time it just felt like everything was meaningless and that I wouldn't find someone else like her

To me it feels like there is no way out. There's always a way out for me. I come from a decently well off family, so money has always made problems go away. Heartbreak is something money can't fix. To me it feels like you're in a box, and there's just no way out while the air is being sucked out.ย

In college, I was dumped by a girl who was probably out of my league... she was a major "it girl"ย  and I was dumb enough to think we had a real shot of making it through a distance relationship. I was previously a pretty happy person but this rejection reduced me to a point where I literally couldn't get out of bed or focus on any aspect of school (academically or socially). The feeling of rejection was further amplified by the fact that I was consumed by negativity and my self-image was destroyed. I had no one to really talk to, I felt a pit in my stomach, was totally empty inside, and exhausted.

The only things that made these feelings go away was focusing on getting fkin YOLKED and my mental health. Eventually I found some self confidence and started dating again.ย In hindsight, I just wish I didn't hit the bottle as hard through college and the few years following. After seeing it happen to me and some of my friends, heartbreak lasts a LONG time and is probably a reason why some men struggle with emotions to this day. A lot of guys claim they "feel nothing" or are "dead inside", I would guess have some type of event like a heartbreak.ย 

Edit: TY to OP for offering me a few minutes to reflect on that version of myself. Hopefully some young kings can learn from this. Heartbreak happens and it was a formative life experience.ย

Like a fat guy steps on your chest and you have a ocean-sized hole in your stomach. And everything around you falls into nothingness, you donยดt sleep, you donยดt eat, you donยดt even wanna breath anymore. It fucking sucks.
