For the believers of ‘forever,’ ‘hopeless romantics’ and most especially broken-hearted people out there, this video is definitely for you! Watch this viral video of the science behind the so-called most-painful human experience.
As been stated in the blog of Ashley Cox entitled the ‘The Science behind Heartbreak,’ ‘It can be caused by many different circumstances and that's what makes this emotion easily recognized by nearly every person on the planet. It can result from the loss of a loved one, a partner, a friend and even a close pet. Or it can be caused from disappointment, betrayal or a change from known surroundings. It might not even be a loss at all but a sense of loss, or the realization that the love of the person you care most for is drifting far from where it had always been.’
Now, to further understand everything behind it, let’s quote what David Samuel, a personal developer said about this. "We of course equate the pain of loss to the intensity of the love, but that is not what is behind the pain. The more you love and feel loved, the greater the increase of your sense of purpose because when you do something for just anyone and they do not appreciate it; your sense of purpose is not completely satisfied. It requires seeing who you are helping, and their appreciation to make it complete."
The question is: “Can Heartbreak occur literally?”
Heartbreak can be considered as Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy. According to some researches, it is a sudden temporary weakening of the myocardium, producing something similar to a heart attack. When the body becomes overwhelmed, primarily due to stress, hormones such as metanephrine and normetanephrine are released in excess with addition to proteins such as neuropeptide Y, brain natriuretic peptide, and serotonin.
Many people are coordinating ‘love’ as an abstract ideology that we get from the social media, our parents or to be particular in our society but this scientific explanation about how humans experienced love is based on their emotional stress that affects a certain part of the brain.
Lastly, the acceptance and deeper understanding of love will arm us more into engaging into relationships. If we are experiencing being heartbroken right now, the best thing to do is to remember what the experts said. “Social Support decreases pain” and from here, we can formulate another remedy for it as we engage ourselves in social activities with our family, friends and other people in the community to lessen the burden given by it.
