"The inexplicable truth about pain is that it ultimately demands to be felt. That the more one tries to dismiss it so as to be deemed tough, unassailable— it just piles up, and the bigger the tear it does. And the inexplicable truth about people is that, no matter the pain, we still choose to go through chaos, too hopeful of seeing sunshine after the rain. That no matter the uncertainty, no matter the odds, people take risks with so much hope and faith. So much hope and faith until they get thrown away— we get broken, and sad, and damaged, but still stubborn enough to wake up and stand up like yesterday didn’t happen; we go back to square one, because that’s how we are— we go around building ourselves up just to get torn down again in the end. And that’s a perpetual, inexplicable truth."
