"- are you over him?
- in some ways, I think I'll never be over him.
- that is such an unsatisfying answer.
- that's because you're interpreting it the wrong way. i don't mean it as a wistful, overdramatic declaration. i meant that the love I felt for him was huge and real, and, while painful, it forever changed me as a person. the important people in our lives leave imprints. they may stay or go in the physical realm, but they are always there in your heart, because they helped you from your heart. there's no getting over that."
