Do we set ourselves up for heartbreak on a daily basis by showing our emotions?
With everything we do in our everyday lives, we can easily hurt ourselves, or one another. This hurt can take the form of a physical injury such as a broken bone, or even a paper cut. Then there are the injuries no one else can see.
A broken heart!
This is where the Tin Man may have had it right. He had a tin suit to protect him from physical injuries, and no heart, so there was no chance of feeling the pain of a broken heart, which in most cases hurts more than the very visible injury.
If we had the option to swap places with the Tin Man, what would we do? Continue suffering heartache on a daily basis or take the armour from and hand over our already shattered heart.
Without true heartbreak, we may never find our lifelong partner, and even when we do, there will still be times when the sound of a shattering heart will reverberate in our minds.
Is it all worth the heartache???
