  • To eat one's heart out for someone means to long or strongly desire someone (oftentimes it's someone we can't have)

  • Feel bitter anguish, grief, worry, jealousy, or another strong negative emotion. For example, She is still eating her heart out over being fired, or Eat your heart out—my new car is being delivered today. This hyperbolic expression alludes to strong feelings gnawing at one's heart.

    The answer should be D : Fuming about
