The thing is, we loved each other, and on some level we always will, but when you’re twenty-three and you fall in love, you tend to think that love will supersede any problems. Realizing that no matter how much you love somebody, no matter how desperately you want a relationship to work, life can act as an oxidizer and corrode it to pieces.
One of my bosses brought me a teddy bear to cuddle with. Thanks Mrs Tammy! (at Athens Regional Medical Center)
