The heart is the battery of life. Once it stops pumping, it’s game over.
In a way, when you are full of happiness (energy), you could say you feel heartened. When you feel low, down or sad, you could say you feel disheartened. This is the sort of energy that makes you feel like going on, or giving up.

When you feel disheartened, you feel discouraged, and may feel like giving up or taking a short break before continuing.
