The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesnâ€™t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain youâ€™re doing yourself a disservice. Donâ€™t do that. The truth is that it hurts because itâ€™s real. It hurts because it mattered. And thatâ€™s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesnâ€™t mean that it wonâ€™t end, that it wonâ€™t get better. Because it will.
