I need you to know that it is perfectly reasonable to be crushed. Life is only sprinkled with the beautiful moments so much before the cold hard fact of disappointment set in.
If we were to linger in these less than dandy moments then we are depriving ourselves of the capacity to imagine and hope of much more wonderful things to come… and there are such things to come.
In such heart-sinking times I need you to know that the moments don’t pass easy. We dwell on it because the perverse side of human nature wants us to wallow in sadness and soak in it, to dangle a lie that we don’t deserve happiness. But take heart in the fact that only in tasting bitterness that we understand sweetness… and happiness will very much be more wonderful from now on.
