Is it harder to get your heart broken or to break a heart.
I'm not really sure there is an answer, but I know this:
For those of us whose hearts does not consist merely of stone and ice. The burden of truth is almost unbearable. To be true to ourselves we must also be true with those closest to us, even if mutual expectations begin to mis-align. It would seem that burden lies with those who love and are not loved equally, but perhaps the opposite is just as painful. When you hold somebodies heart in your hand you can't just give it back.
To hurt someone you love is hard to do. But it seems that often times its the most loving thing you could do.
Such is life.
