What If...

One of the most painful experiences is when someone gives you the impression that you're important to them, making you feel cherished and valued.

But then, out of nowhere, they disappear or distance themselves from you.

This abrupt change leaves you confused and hurt.

What makes it even harder is the pressure to hide your true feelings and pretend like their actions didn't affect you, even though inside, you're deeply hurt and trying to cope.

You don't really get over your past; you just learn how to bury it, how to silence it, how to walk away from it, how to move on from it.

But sometimes, in the middle of the night, while you're alone in your room, lying in your bed, you begin to think about them.

You begin to wonder how different your life would have been if only one small decision had been


You start to ponder if maybe it could have worked out eventually, if maybe the two of you would have matured enough to make things work, if you both would have been happy.

You never quite get over someone you once loved; you never quite fully heal.

Like I said, you just learn how to close the door, but you never quite lock it or tear it down.

You just learn how to live with it and visit it every once in a while when you feel the need to.

That's all.
