Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.

And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

but there is also compassion in heartfelt empathy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Maybe I could have loved you better.

but we cannot accept and love ourselves.

and can never grow in a jealous heart.
- Leo F. Buscaglia

that too often when I loved,

At the beginning, we are in relationship
because we are attracted to the other person -
