LORELAI: I don’t want to wait anymore. I don’t want to be patient. I’ve been patient long enough. I’m not happy, and I feel crappy all the time. And I just think I’ve had it.

CAROLYN: So…what are you gonna do? Only you can make you wait. Nobody else can. You need to decide what you want and what you’re willing to give up to get it, and then you got to be okay with that, or you got to be okay with waiting. You won’t get anything unless you ask for it. And if you ask for it and you don’t get it, maybe it wasn’t worth having in the first place. Some things are just never meant to be, no matter how much we wish they were.

When we think of “meant to be,” we automatically assume forever. But maybe it isn’t supposed to last forever. Maybe it’s just someone who is in your life to teach you something. Maybe the forever is not the person, but what we gain from them.
