    Talking 143-eating heart

    Hello all

    What does the following sentence mean?

    (I'm afraid. That broke his heart. "He is eating his heart out".)

    Thanks a million

    "He's eating his heart out" means that he is either very upset or very jealous about something, depending upon the context.
