Dear Diary, today will be different. Today I will smile. It will be genuine. Because today is the day that I get to live again. This life will be good and beautiful. But not without heartbreak. In death comes peace. But pain is the cost of living. Like love, it’s how we know we’re alive. And life goes on.
After med school, I came home to Mystic Falls. It felt right. It’s where I want to grow old. And that’s my life. Weird, messy, complicated, sad, wonderful, amazing, and adove all… Epic. And I owe it all to Stefan.
“We’ve all made terrible mistakes in our
life, done things that no apology can heal, but you just have to keep
going trying to find some new happiness no matter how much you’ve
lost. The strange thing is, losing those people is what brought us
together, it’s how we found each other, it’s what made us family.”
After med school, I came home to Mystic Falls. It felt right. It’s where I wanted to grow old and I did. And that’s my life: weird, messy, complicated, sad, wonderful, amazing, and above all epic. And I owe it all to Stefan. When I met him, I had lost my parents and I was dead inside, but he brought me back to life and I’m going to live it as best I can for as long as I can. Even after our long and happy life together, Damon is still worried he’ll never see Stefan again, that he’ll never find peace. But I know he’s wrong because peace exists. It lives in everything we hold dear. That is the promise of peace, that one day after a long life, we find each other again.
