i was at a funeral the other day and the wife of the man who’d died was really really crying. i took in everything that was going on.
for a split second i thought that the only way to avoid ever feeling like that old woman would to just never fall in love, never have kids, and just live alone for the rest of my life.
i then realised that love is such a special feeling, and i’d rather fall in love, get married, have a family and make so many amazing memories and end up feeling like that for a few years because if you’re alone for your whole life you’ll feel like the old woman always. and that’s horrible.
