After a while, everything will stop hurting. You’ll find yourself being accustom with the sharp pain that you feel every time you see him with her. The sharp pain will turn into a dull ache until such time, when you see a picture of them together, you’ll know something has changed. Maybe it was still the same picture you saw from last year that you keep on looking back to remind you that he’s never yours to begin with, that he’s happy with her, that he didn’t choose you, and he keep on not choosing you, but this time when you look at their picture, you’ll know something has changed. Something has changed in you and you’ll realize it doesn’t hurt as much as before, it doesn’t feel like the world suddenly stops spinning and everything turns insanely quiet, and it doesn’t feel like a true heartbreak is happening inside your chest. It will still hurt, yes, but it’s more like a background sad music inside your soul, something that will always be there, something that will always be a part of you, but something that you can also choose to ignore. Until one day, you won’t even hear those background music, or feel those dull pain, unless you really really listen and force yourself too.
Trust me, in time, it will stop hurting. I know for I’ve been there too. And you know what? I can look at his eyes now without wanting a piece of my soul back.
