Better a Bigger Bandage Than a Smaller Heart
Love isnít always fun. Sometimes itís painful. Sometimes you get dumped. Sometimes the person you love doesnít love you back. Sometimes you trust your gut and then someone punches you in the stomach. Sometimes you feel like you want to throw up. Sometimes your heart breaks and then it stings and just sits there for a while, like itís never going to heal. It might stay broken for a while. You might need to be helicoptered in for some complex surgery involving ice cream and tissue and good friends who arenít doctors.
Just make sure that you let your heart heal. Make sure that you keep watering your inner optimist. Make sure that you get some sunshine. Make sure you notice when youíre back and ready to be happy again. Be okay with the price of the risk of love. And promise me youíll play the game again. Because I have no doubt that one day youíll win.
