Arguably, since their civilisation totally collapsed in on itself, I would say that it did not, in fact work for the Romans at all. This is also the
reason the toga fell out of fashion. People realised in hindsight, that actually, wearing a curtain is a bloody stupid idea.
As for how to mend a broken heart, the answer, for me at least, is you do not. Your heart remains a little more broken every time and the only thing
that dictates whether you can move forward with your life or not, is how much grit you have in your gut.
You learn something from every incident of hardship, every crushed dream, every soaring peak and every staggering crash, every stomach churning,
aortic transection you experience, and you use the data you gain from those to make your next step better informed, less tentative, more confident.
The damage becomes the fuel, stokes your determination, lights fire in the deeps which spin the fan blades of your will, until finally you realise
that all a person does when they break your heart, is expose more and more of your strength, not more and more of your weakness.
