More often than not, women are likely to become so called burn victims than guys because of the emotional attatchment they can have with that certain gentlemen in question. I use the term gentlemen loosely as there are guys out there who say and act like their the proverbial handsome princes but then end up turning into fire breathing dragons. For they can say the right words, as well as, do the right things to genuinely win one's heart as it make them feel like a princess but unfortunately those words and deeds can become meaningless to the point it just turns into a bunch of steaming hot air.
For guys or girls, being burned is in a sense like being Punk'd and your heart is considered the main target. Oftentimes, you can see it coming but there are times where you can't and you just get blindsided by those four words...we need to talk. Without a doubt, you don't know what is about to happen and yet you prepare yourself to stop, drop, and roll, in a manner of speaking. Once one hears those words he or she has been dreading there's not only an initial shock but also complete disbelief that its actually happening to you. However, unlike the end result of Punk'd its no laughing matter as your heart is left humiliated and betrayed.
For the question can be asked can being burned by someone be, in the long run, a good thing? I believe so because as I said before the most resilient part of the human body is a person's heart. Though you may think the love you have within your heart will burn you, you'll find that it will heal you as you meet someone who inevitably removes that scorch mark within your heart. A female friend of mine experienced an unfortunate break-up but surprisingly she is in good spirits about it because she saw it coming. Essentially, she didn't suffer any permanent burn marks within her heart and to make a long story short she has met someone new who has a given her a reason to smile both inwardly and outwardly.
Someone said, ~So what do you do when somebody you're so devoted to suddenly just stops loving you and it seems they haven't got a clue of the pain that rejection is putting you through. Do you cling to your pride and sing 'I Will Survive, do you lash out and say 'How dare you leave this way', or do you hold on in vain as they just slip away?~ In the end, when it comes to being burned a person can take back words of love, as well as, material things that mean something special, but what you can't take back are the memories you shared together to where you say to that person even though you've moved on with your life with someone else you'll think of me which is a song by country recording artist and newly married man Keith Urban.
