It doesn’t matter how many new haircuts you get,
or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay
you drink with your girlfriends… You still go
to bed every night going over every detail and wonder
what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood.
And how in the hell for that brief moment you could
think that you were that happy. And sometimes you
can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light
and show up at your door. And after all that, however
long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new. and
you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again.
And little pieces of your soul will finally come back.
And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life
that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.
-I love the movie “The Holiday”, esp that quote from Iris/Kate Winslet
