Think about it and be honest. Even if the worst happens to her you would have to go on with your life just like you do now. You would want to step away from everything, but life won’t let you. You would go to work, you would watch TV, you would listen to music, you would go out, you would talk, and you would smile. You would live. At first perhaps unwillingly but, in time, you would stop paying attention. Because everything is good when it ends. No matter how it ends.
It turns out giving up on life is not an easy task. It is intoxicating and addictive… But that’s just the way life is.
