Is it better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all?
Gosh, I feel like I’m in one of those embarrassingly teenage movies. Where it’s supremely predictable and seriously mushy – yet kind of heartwarming too. But seriously – it’s definitely something to think about. I know when heartbreak strikes, it can feel as though it’s the end of life itself. Like your whole chest has fallen through your asshole and there’s nothing left in the middle of you.
But – the only thing i can think of that’s worse than experiencing that feeling… is not ever getting to feel it. I mean it, because if you haven’t ever felt the heart-wrenching, crushing feeling of losing someone that meant that much to you, then it means you probably haven’t ever felt that jaw-dropping feeling of utterly pure passion for someone. You know, love so deep that you feel like you can’t breathe without it.
I have to say, as horrific as that kind of feeling may be, it can’t be nearly as hollow as never feeling it before.
What do you think?
Would you rather never have experienced true, proper love?
Or would you rather risk the shithouse feeling that losing it brings?
