How can I add line breaks in my page history comments?

I would like to be able to note multiple changes as part of the page history for a particular page and would like to be able to have them show up on separate lines.

Currently, when I add a long list of changes to the "What did you change?" field when I update a page, I get an entry that's on a single line which I need to scroll over very far to the right to read and which extends the width of the page substantially.

I would like to mitigate this issue by being able to add line breaks into my page history comments. Is there a way that I can use <br> in this field such that Confluence will incorporate the line break?

Here is an example of what I would like to achieve using Chrome's inspect function to add the line breaks to the html of the comment text:


And here is the modified html from Chrome:
