Say what you will, 'tis better to be left than never to have been loved.
Time heals. It's slow and it's painful but it works. Talking helps, going out with other people, seeing friends. She'll be like a book you read long ago. If you trust that if it's meant to be then it'll be again, and if it's not you will wake up one day and realize that you hadn't even thought of her once. And then you'll be free.
I wouldn't cry today. I wouldn't cry over him again. Not ever.
—Abbi Glines in Sometimes It Lasts
Her life was beginning to make sense again, although she couldn't say that she was enjoying it. But her mind was clear, and her heart was not constantly as heavy. Only when she thought about him. But she knew that in time, she'd survive it. She had done it before and would again. Eventually the heart repairs.
