One of the laws of life is that, eventually, you’re going to take it square in the face.
No matter how you prepare yourself, no matter what you do, you’re going to get hurt. You’re going to end up with a broken heart. It may be romantic, or it may be that life just kicks you square in your soul’s nuts. Your perfect lover dumps you. You get fired from your perfect job. You may lose someone close to you. Doesn’t matter how it happens; all you need to know is that sometime, in some place, you’re going to get hit and hard. And it’s going to drop you to your goddamn knees.
But while pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. Life may beat you down. You may get your heart broken. But if you know how to pull yourself back together, you can get the strength to stand right back up, broken heart and all. And you’ll be stronger than you were before.
