“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” – John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.
Here’s my own version of that quote:
You fall in love,
Slowly, and then all at once.
Then you get up, with or without him. You get up.
And then you move forward.
I think that’s what I need to do now–move forward. Friends keep asking me, “Is that little glimpse of heaven worth all the pain you’re feeling?” I always tell them that yes, it is worth it.
But now, I guess, I have to move forward. Whatever that means, I have to move forward. I’m not giving up. I’m moving forward.
