Madalas pag naiisip natin ang broken heart isang picture ang ating nakikita. Parang ganito:

But did you know know that it's a scientific fact that people can actually die of a broken heart? Real-life broken hearts are connected to depression, mental health, and heart disease. Maaaring naririnig natin sa mga telenovela or movies ang mga lines gaya ng, "Mamamatay ako pag nawala ka sa buhay ko" o "I can't live without you."

Pero syempre pag sa tunay na buhay, hindi lang ito kunwariang drama kasi baka maisugod ka pa sa ospital. Kasi kahit healthy living ka, pag sobra ang emotional  outburst after ng break-up nyo ng boyfriend or girlfriend mo, maaari itong mag-lead sa Broken Heart Syndrome, which is also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy. According to Heart.Org, madalas na napagkakamalang heart attack ang broken heart syndrome dahil magkapareho ang symptoms  at test results. Pero di gaya ng heart attack, walang indication ng blocked heart arteries ang Broken Heart Syndrome.

Bad News: Broken heart syndrome can lead to severe, short-term heart muscle failure.

Good News: Hindi mo kailangang ma-experience ito.

Marami sa atin ang pumapasok sa relationship ng hindi pinag-iisipan. Mabilis tayong mahulog kapag may nagpakita lang ng interest sa atin at agad tayong sumusunod sa kabig ng ating mga damdamin. Matatalino daw ang mga kabataan ngayon dahil napakabilis nila matuto pagdating sa media and technology related stuff. Maaaring sa aspeto ng media at technology, matatalino ang mga kabataan pero pagdating sa love, malamang bagsak ang marami. Akala kasi natin ay hindi kailangan ng matinding effort ang love.

So paano ba maiiwasan ang pagkakaroon ng broken heart? Boy, bago manligaw  at Girl, bago sumagot sa manliligaw, itanong ito sa sarili: Nakikita ko ba ang sarili ko na magpaplanong pakasalan ang taong ito? O baka naman gusto ko lang siya dahil pinapakilig nya ako?

Kung ang sagot mo ay walang 100% na kasiguraduhan, mas maigi na wag na lang tumuloy sa isang relationship. Lahat ng bagay sa mundo ay may purpose at ang purpose ng romantic relationship between a guy and a girl ay dapat mag-lead sa marriage. Bago pumasok sa isang relationship, let's ask ourselves kung ano  ang purpose nito: Kasalan o hiwalayan? Kasi kung walang purpose, 100% sure na sa hiwalayan at broken heart ang uwi nyan.

Filipino youth, let's also use our heads. Think. It will save us from broken hearts.

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
  pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning,
 so do not forsake my teaching.
For I too was a son to my father,
 still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
 “Take hold of my words with all your heart;
 keep my commands, and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding;
  do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
 love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
 Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
 embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will give you a garland to grace your head
 and present you with a glorious crown.”

~Proverbs 4:1-9 (NIV)
