sad but true…

Standard

“Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up…
If a guy punches you, he likes you.
Never try to trim you own bangs.
And someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get you very own happy ending.

Every movie we see, every story we’re told, implores us to wait for it.
The third act twist: the unexpected declaration of love.
The exception to the rule.

But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our own happy ending…
That we don’t learn to read the signals… How to tell the ones who wants us from the ones who don’t…
The ones who will stay and the ones who will leave…
And maybe this happy ending doesn’t include a wonderful guy.
Maybe it’s you.. On your own..
Picking up the pieces and starting over.
Freeing yourself up for something better in the future.
Maybe the happy ending is just moving on…

Or maybe the happy ending is this…
knowing that through all the unreturned phone calls and broken hearts…
Through the blunders and misread signals…
Through all of the pain and embarrasment…
You never ever gave up hope.”

(He’s Just not Into You)
