Not Everything About Love is Happy


Not Everything About Love is Happy -- but Instead Often Very Sad

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but this is reality. Sometimes you have to let go, and during the process you have to heal from the pain of losing someone. 

Is it really better to have loved and lost than never loved?

When I was a teenager I used to think so. I was told that "there's other fish in the sea" and all the cheesy things people say to someone who has lost someone. However, to "have loved and lost" has just become a tiresome cliche that I don't want to hear anymore.

When it comes to love, will I ever get a choice?

I have loved and lost so many times I wonder if I will ever get a choice in the matter. Not everything about love is happy, and the only time anyone ever is in love with me is if I don't feel the same way about him.
