    Not only does it take time, sometimes it never completely heals.

    It takes time, but it is not the time that does the healing. It is accomplished only when one chooses to heal.

    And how is Pig alive if his heart outside his body and broken? What other organ be pumping blood into his veins?

    It’s like a glass plate, little buddy. It takes a long time to put back together, but the cracks will forever be there. This alone prevents many from taking it back out of the proverbial cupboard again, but when you find the right person? It’s worth it.

    Sure looks like a bad case. Usually it is just broken into seventeen pieces, even then it can take a long time so Pig should maybe get therapy, or at the very least he should talk about his heartache with friends.

    Where do broken hearts go?

    Can they find their way home

    Of a love that’s waiting there?

    Oh, Pig… WWA❤️ED works for guys, too! Besides, Shawana was an unworthy swine. Give that cutie Pigetta a ringy dingy and take her down to the soda fountain for a Cherry Vanilla Coke. Everyone ❤️ Fountain Cherry Vanilla Cokes. BOOM! Problem solved. The Count ❤️s it when a plan comes together.

    Some take longer than others….go home and have a cup of Chamomile tea and take a nap! Things will seem better as the days go on… day at a time!

    Look Pig you never had a relationship with Shawna to start with, so you really don’t have much to get over. Go get plastered tonight and tomorrow you will have forgotten all about her.

    Um, had Pig even met the woman who “broke” his heart, prior to three days ago? I don’t remember seeing her here before. That seems less like love than infatuation or even stalking—in which case, I don’t think she owes him more than the polite “sorry, not interested” that she gave him yesterday, and I do think he’s being a bit of a drama queen.
