Heartbreaks Happen

My heart's been broken, but today I reached a good point in any given heartbreak—I can see the absurdity of it all. There are a million songs that sing about this feeling. It's not a unique situation, it's a fact of life and love. Heartbreaks happen! And so it happened to me like it happens to everyone else. It's nothing special when you can look at it like a cold or flu. You might go years without ever getting sick, but then there are those years where you might get it twice in a row. So what? You puke your guts out, and feel horrible, and sleep it off, and take care of your health until you feel better. Then you get back on your feet and feel normal again—back to your old self. It was not too serious or deadly, just something that had to pass through your system.
