Only people who fail in love know the pain of heartbreak. As a result, many become physically ill, and some become insane, some leave their family and religion. But why do people break up so much after a relationship breaks up? What is the scientific explanation?
After breaking up a relationship, most people make big wrong decisions in life. Quitting a job or studying, becoming addicted to drugs are just some of the common examples. It is not their fault.
Science says that people become very emotional after the breakup, and some hormones affect the body during this time. The strange thing is, these same hormones are responsible for our falling in love, responsible for being overwhelmed with love.
After losing the man of love, the chemical state of our brain changes, you know, the pain of having a breakup isn’t just emotional pain, but also physical suffering. A specific part of the brain is stimulated during physical pain. MRI scans show that people with a recent breakup have a higher secretion of certain hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline. And these hormones are stress hormones. They cause nausea and shortness of breath in our bodies. Not only that, but this is also why there is a type of weakness in the heart muscle called Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy.
In some cases, this problem can be fatal. Let’s go back to the effects of heartbreak on the brain. In addition to the release of stress hormones, some other things happen at this time. Let’s give an example of a study. Researchers at Rutgers University in New York selected ten women and five men who have recently had a breakup but are still in love with their ex-boyfriend or girlfriend.
An MRI of their brain is done while looking at a picture of their ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. Some surprising information comes out of this. As active as the brain of a cocaine addict can be seen, the condition of the mind of these people was much the same! Its explanation is also found in science.
When you fall in love with someone, then there is an excess of dopamine, a hormone secreted as a result of taking drugs like cocaine. As a result, we continue to float in a feeling of happiness. And when this love ends, that intoxicating feeling of yours also ends.
As a result, we go through difficult times like drug withdrawal. But do you know the property of dopamine? It always wants more. As a result, we still want to be with our boyfriend or girlfriend. Soon after the breakup again, we feel the need for another boyfriend or girlfriend. In trying to fill this gap, our intellect becomes a bit dull. We continue to work in reverse. Someone cries, someone starts overeating. But at some point, our brain returns to its normal state.
According to a study published earlier this year, it takes people an average of three months to forget old love. The good news is, the pain of old love is not permanent. This sad moment is over, and at some point, our life becomes stable.
And if this pain seems unbearable, ordinary paracetamol can be used to reduce the pain of twisting the heart. Sounds ridiculous but true. As well as talking to people close to you, light talk can also give you a lot of peace. For this reason, if you feel a little upset mentally after the breakup, do not be angry with yourself. It is the law of nature.
