The first person who breaks your heart will always teach you the importance of love. 1. People come and go and only a handful of them are willing to stay. So it is best to give them your promises. 2. You have to go through pain every once in a while. That's how it works. Pain is inevitable. Pain is relative. Pain brings people closer together. So it is best to give the people you love your sorrow. They will make flowers out of them. Believe it. And3. Somewhere down the line a revelation will hit you like a comet and when it does you will think of the first time you got your heart broken. And the second and maybe even the third. And you will finally realize the importance of it all. And you will thank them for the experiences. And you will finally bring down your walls and learn how to move on. How to forgive. How to properly heal. And you will do all of these marvelous things but also, you will never forget the way they once made you feel. You will never forget the slow burn that brokenness brings. And you will remind yourself of it every now and then... and you will do so to remember the importance of letting go and etc. To remember why you should never search for love in the same place you lost it. Why you should never search for love in the same place where it left you broken. That's the importance of love. Of going through it-to have it and cherish it... but also, to not fall victim to the same people and tragedies that made you feel even more alone. To not fall victim to all things that covered up the sun. Those lessons are valuable, therefore, it is best to learn as much as you can and love as much as you're willing to get hurt. Stay strong.
