“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
- Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
I mean, in 99% of scenarios, love ends in heartbreak. How do you quantify that into what is better? Not ever loving, but never having heartbreak... or loving, but hurting from heartbreak? I was in a long term relationship and got dumped badly, and feel like I never want to date anyone again seriously, this was 6 years ago. I'm over it, but I remember it vividly how I felt and don't want to relive similar experiences.
