Sigmund Freud has been described as the "prose-poet of the heart's desire to break". I think he was a kind of artist who gave us a language in which to express our deepest griefs. For the most part we are not able to do this in anything like a direct way, by simply naming them. We need a vocabulary which expresses and yet conceals them at the same time. Freud supplied it, or at least one possible version of it.
In the Old Testament there is a teaching that God loves a heart that is broken, indeed that brokenness is the only sure way to approach God.
Freud must have been well acquainted with it.
