The thing about pain — much like love — is it demands to be felt.
Throwing yourself into love with another person is an amazing feeling, but it's also one full of heartbreak. As your relationship grows and you change alongside of one another, it takes a LOT of work to keep from opting out.
Sometimes the struggles are too much to bear and we prepare ourselves to leave — even when we know that that person is about to take a part of our hearts with them.
Other times, though, we choose to stick it out. We fight for what's ours because we know if we don't, we'll never get to see what COULD be.
Before you go, it's important to reflect on your relationship and ask yourself what went wrong along the way.
Did one of you change? Are you bored? Maybe they are too.
How much have you REALLY given to your relationship?
These quotes are the perfect example of what it feels like to love, lose, and fully experience life as it is. Like Alan Watts says in his talks on love, "To live, and to love, you have to take risks. There will be disappointments and failures and disasters as a result of taking these risks. But in the long run it will work out."
