When you’re wondering if loving someone was worth it — ask yourself this. If you could go back in time, if you could do it all over again, would you? Would you choose that person, would you choose that hope, knowing that you would also be choosing that hurt? Knowing that at one point in time, you were going to have to survive the loss of them, the ache of missing? Would you still risk for them? Would you still love them? Would you still stay up until 4am with them on the night you met, letting yourself fall? Would you still get on the plane? Would you still forgive, and trust; would you still make the memories, would you still give them a home in your heart? See, if the answer is no, then maybe what you had was not love, maybe it was a lesson. Maybe you can find closure in that. But if your answer is yes, then ah — do not doubt if it was worth it. Do not make it any less beautiful in your mind, do not turn it into something you choose to forget. No, if you would do it all again, if you would still choose just a few more hours, just a few more days, just a few more years, despite the inevitable loss, then you had something most people never find in this lifetime. You had something worth the fight. Don’t ever forget that.
