I said to someone I know, "I don't know why this hurts so much". And she said, "it hurts because it matters". And that was a huge thing for me to realize. That there are things in life that hurt. And they hurt because they are important.
And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe it’s you, on your won, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on.
