If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it’s that pain is tolerable. That no matter how many tears you shed, it’ll never be enough to fill your lungs and kill you. Even if you do stop breathing, that pain will disappear as well and in the end, you’ll always be okay. Therefore, no matter how much pain you maybe going through, it should never be enough to risk your relationship or friendship with someone who matters. It should never be an excuse to be selfish. Suck it up and be there for your loved ones as they might be hurting just as much or even more than you. And it’s that moment where they need you more than ever. It’s their happiness that makes all the pain; tolerable and worth it.
