As we approach Valentines Day, I am always reminded of how the feelings of love (and particularly, new love) are rooted in biochemical reactions that evokes feelings similar to those of euphoria and addiction.
And, sadly, a broken heart also has roots in the biochemical. Worse yet, there are mental disturbance associated with a broken heart.
The following TED talk, from Guy Winch, sums it up quite well. If you are suffering from a broken heart, watch this video. And at 7:04, you will see the reason why this post is titled “Phone, please”
So, if you have a broken heart, watch this talk, and do the work that Guy Winch recommends. Happy healing of that heart.
