An unnamed friend of mine has had the longest, most definitely painful break-up I have ever seen in my entire life. This person rejects offers of help, and buries any and all indications of a soul under a crushing mound of work, spending all free time pining for the “love” who so vehemently rejects them. I feel for them, and yet can do little.
Its amazing how many times we can let outselves get hurt, even when we know EXACTLY how things will happen over and over again. Even when there are those around you who care and want you to learn and to move on. Its times like that that make me the most disappointed with the human condition.
