It is one of the hardest lessons to learn in life: just because it ended, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t beautiful, meaningful, worth it.
A relationship, a job, a trip, a phase in life. Life itself.
You want your happy moments to last forever. Don’t we all?…
When intense happiness gives room to emptiness and tearing pain, you wonder: did the good outweigh the bad? Or shouldn’t any of it have existed at all?
Each moment belongs to a day and serves its purpose. Tomorrow’s misery doesn’t take away from yesterday’s joy. They exist separated in time and space.
Happiness is always worth it. Even when it turns into sadness. Laughter is always beautiful. Even when it gives place to tears. Love is always meaningful. Even when it ends.
Life is a compilation of moments. Even the most beautiful ones must end to give space to what comes next. It is just the way life goes. And isn’t it beautiful?
“I’ll be able to say to myself of the love I had: Be not immortal since it is flame. But be infinite while it lasts.”
— Vinicius de Moraes
