The trick is to get it before it breaks. And then to nurture it … to protect it with everything you have. Because once it’s broken, it’ll never be the same. And that’s when compromises are made. That’s when people start to give up. But no one really realizes how important it is to keep it pure until after it’s broken. That’s why all these middle-aged married couples sit next to each other on the couch and stare at the TV. They are numb. They don’t care anymore. They can’t get hurt anymore, but they also can’t love anymore. It’s too sad for me to think about.
