"Nothing is worse than being broke and having your girlfriend leave you. Nothing to drink, no work, just the walls, gazing at the walls and thinking. That's how women retaliated against you, but it injured and weakened them as well. Or so I want to think." Charles Bukowski's love life was not very happy, and he often wrote about it.
Broken hearts are sad, but being broke too? That's something new for me. I don't know much about poetry or literature, but I think this guy is great. He writes about things that most people would never think about. Like being broke and lonely. It's amazing. His poems are like diary entries that people write for themselves. They're honest and real. Sometimes they're funny too! I recommend reading him if you have a little time because his words will stay with you for a long time.
They discovered that breakups have a more detrimental impact on women, with higher degrees of both physical and emotional anguish reported. In terms of mental suffering, women averaged 6.84, while males averaged 6.58. In terms of bodily discomfort, women averaged 4.21, while males averaged 3.75. Overall, men report feeling pain in their lives after a breakup about as often as women do.
The study also revealed some differences between men and women when it came to specific aspects of pain. For example, women reported feeling sadder after their relationships ended, while men said they felt less attractive. As for why these differences exist, the researchers suggest two possibilities: either there are real biological differences between men and women that cause them to react to break-up situations differently, or men and women interpret break-up signals differently -- for example, men may think that if a relationship is important to her then she will stay away rather than move on.
Whatever the reason, it seems like men and women experience love losses and heartaches in different ways. A broken woman is left weak and vulnerable, while a man can usually get over his hurt quickly and easily. Love isn't just blind, it also appears to be deaf as well!
The study was published in the journal Psychology of Love.
What does it mean to be a "broken woman"? Essentially, she's a lady who is carrying emotional baggage from previous terrible relationships... and it's making your present relationship with her a living misery. Does any of this sound familiar? If so, you're not alone; many women have found themselves in this situation at one time or another.
Many women are broken by past relationships because they don't know how to properly process their emotions. They keep people around them who treat them badly, then get upset when they find new ways to be hurt.
They allow men to take advantage of them and never say no; then they cry inside when someone else rejects them. Some women feel like they deserve to be treated this way because something bad happened to them in the past. But whatever the case may be, it doesn't make it right for them to put other people through pain too.
There are many ways for a woman to be broken. Here are just three examples: She was betrayed by someone she loved, such as a husband or father. She was used as a pawn in a power struggle between two other people. Or someone took advantage of her trust purposefully, causing her to feel insecure about future interactions.
When you meet a broken woman, she will usually give off signs that she needs help.
But, since writing it, I've wanted to write this to discuss the opposite side of it: being broke can be exhausting. That's also OK. It may be enjoyable to be reckless and irresponsible and go on adventures or buy things we shouldn't since it brings joy to our life. And then there's the fallout. If you drain your savings or take out a loan to pay for something, if you don't pay back the loan then you will be in trouble.
The point is that having no money is not fun forever. At some point, you need to make more money so you can have more fun. The question is how?
The first thing you need to understand is that making money takes time. There are no shortcuts to success. It may seem like there are "get rich quick" schemes but they all have high fees or restrictions. For example, investing in stocks or funds requires research and knowledge of what you're doing while gambling needs luck.
After you know how to make money properly, you need to keep making money even when you're already rich because sooner or later, everyone needs health care and food. These things cannot be bought any other way except by selling products or services.
In conclusion, being poor is sad but being broke is awful too. It's not fun not having enough money to pay for things you want. The solution is simple: make more money.
According to the study, women are more badly impacted by heartbreak, both emotionally and physically. Women ranked their "emotional distress" following a breakup at 6.84, while males scored it at 6.58. Furthermore, women assessed their "physical discomfort" as 4.21 on average, while males ranked it as 3.75.
The study also noted that women need more time to recover from a breakup than men. Women's average recovery period was estimated at 35 days, compared to only 10 days for men. After 50 days, almost one in four women had not yet recovered from their last breakup, whereas this number was only 5% of men.
In terms of consequences, men's stress levels can sometimes mask their emotional pain better than women's. The study concluded that women have a greater need for support network, especially after a bad break up.

The key to getting out of debt for good is to recognize that you're going to make errors but that you're still willing to attempt. Don't give up simply because the going gets tough. We've all made and will continue to make errors. But you must overcome your fear and hop off the hamster wheel.
If you're serious about wanting to stop being broke for good, then you need to take specific actions to ensure that doesn't happen. The first thing you need to do is create a budget that takes into account all of your debts. Make sure that it's not just a simple income statement. Also include any other information that may be relevant such as allowances for savings or emergencies.
After creating a budget, check it regularly to see if you're spending more than what's coming in. If you are, then you need to cut back on some expenses. This might mean reducing your monthly food bill by $20 or reducing your phone bill by $50. You need to determine what you can afford rather than just writing a check when you receive your bills.
Once you've reduced your expenses, you need to increase your income. This could be done by looking for part-time work, taking advantage of promotions or raises, or starting a side business. Just make sure that whatever you do, it's something that won't cause you financial harm.
