“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”~ John Green
“Every time we make the decision to love someone, we open ourselves to great suffering, because those we most love cause us not only great joy but also great pain. The greatest pain comes from leaving. When the child leaves home, when the husband or wife leaves for a long period of time or for good, when the beloved friend departs to another country or dies … the pain of the leaving can tear us apart. Still, if we want to avoid the suffering of leaving, we will never experience the joy of loving. And love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. We have to trust that the risk of loving is always worth taking.” ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
Feelings may never leave, but you still need to move on to better things.
Lots of people who love you leave. Why? Cowardice. Maybe they are married to someone else and they don’t want the drama & expense of divorce. Maybe their family does not approve. Maybe they have religious differences. These are what’s called taking the easy way out. ~ Carrie McClure
You know it's Love when your feelings don't leave even if the person does.
