You don’t let people go
Breakups last far longer for you than for any of your friends. Why? Because you believe in the nonsense concept of “the one.” You think trying to get someone back is the only good use of your time, when really all it is is a giant waste of your time. Life is short. And the stars will not align because there is no such thing. You have to work to find someone. But, the good news is, you can work to find someone. So, do it. And stop thinking you just lost someone that “fate” brought to you. Fate didn’t bring you him—Match.com did, or a bar, or a common friend. And they’ll bring you a man again.
