Maybe the pain never goes away. Maybe you never forget. For the sake of sanity, your mind just finds a way to deal with it, to live with it. I don’t know if its true, when they say that things happen for a reason, and that someone better comes along. But I do know, that you can’t wait for someone to come and save you. Because honestly, no one can. Except, you, yourself. You just have to pick the pieces up one day and move on. Because, well frankly, you don’t have any other choice.
For quite some time, the pain will always be there at the back of your mind, always coming back to hurt you whenever you decide to part ways with it and dare to smile, or even laugh. For quite some time it will be the first thing on your mind whenever you wake up. Until one day, when it will be the second.
And when it will all be over, one of two things would have happened. Either you would have found yourself back. Or you would have let go of that person completely. And even if the latter would have happened, it isn’t so bad, because sometimes, that is what it all is about.
Either way, there will be a newfound strength. Strength that will allow you to hope, to dream, to love again. You just never have to allow you fears to become bigger than yourself, to overwhelm you so, that you never dare hope again. Because then, you would have lost the battle.
