I don’t think it’s always necessary to fight someone out of our system, because that’s the opposite of love. Walking away from love hurts a lot and probably does more damage to us than we realize. It’s a chain reaction that sets in motion devastating effects on future love. The more something hurts, the less we do it. How can the thing that feels the best, hurt the worst? Love is a feeling; love is an emotion; love is a verb. We can do something with it or we can just be with it….
