    Could you tell me why people usually take a deep breathe when they want to get over something hard happening ?

    It's one of those natural tendencies, like smiling and laughter, that are built in, no matter what culture you are. I imagine it's to relax, kind of ground yourself and rationally think "okay, where to start..." and maybe for that added boost of oxygen to help you think more clearly.
