Sometimes, making peace with some things doesn't mean you've heard the end of it.
To him, cliche as it may sound, it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. I admire your intensity, I hope you give it to someone who truly deserves it. It might be her, though the opposite may be true just the same. She gave you a chance to know that you have it in you, that you can love like the best of them. I hope that whoever comes knocking on your door, a past, a present or a wonderful future, don't hesitate. No matter how many times you get hurt, you will always fall in love again.
To her, i hope you find what you're looking for. That is one lucky pair of shoes you're wearing. Appreciate what comes your way, after some time, it'll come few and far in between. Youth trumps recklessness, but not with another person's heart. Hope that time will never come when you look back and see not even a faint shadow of what was or what you wish will be.
To me, don't put yourself in situations where you might give your heart a nasty beating, it's been through enough. Know when to quit.
