Have you ever been able to reconcile with someone who broke your heart?
There’s a Fiona Apple song that I think of when I think of a guy whose heart I’ve broken more than once. In “Criminal”, she says, “I’ve been a bad, bad girl – I’ve been careless with a delicate man”
I’m afraid to report that I have done this to someone I have been connected to for over 12 years. For some reason, our paths continually cross. I feel like for the first time in years, I am healthier than ever but I’m afraid I may have “made my own bed and now I have to lie in it”. He keeps coming back as we realize the connection is stronger than either of us. I guess this is much like the story of Jeanette Macdonald and Nelson Eddy which you can read here. http://tsl.org/2010/01/when-love-is-not-enough-the-story-of-twin-flames-nelson-eddy-and-jeanette-macdonald/
I want to know, especially from men, any experience going back to a woman who broke your heart. Did it work out? Are you still together? How does it feel for a man to truly experience heartbreak?
I know men and women experience this on different levels, and I am interested in hearing from a man’s perspective how it affected their ability to have relationships thereafter.
