i love westallen but do you think this is healthy? putting ALL your happiness in someone else? literally giving up living if you don't have that person anymore? it's a bit much
listen, iris has been his best friend since they were 10 years old. she’s the one person he’s known the longest. he’s been in love with her forever. she’s the most important person in his life. when he lost his mom he had iris. when he lost his dad he had iris. he hardly got over there deaths but she helped. i mean she’s his constant. but then he lost her and it broke him. how the hell do you expect him to move on from that? like ever? it completely messed him up. a loss that big is something you cannot move on from. he literally says she’s the love of his life. they were supposed to get married!! it’s a loss that feels like an eternity of pain. he’s known her for 16+ years and it’s only been 7 years since her death. not enough time has even passed for him to move on and he never will. when you love someone THAT MUCH it’s something you’ll never be over. you can say it’s not healthy but everyone grieves differently. and we all know barry loves iris so much that he never get over her death.
