Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.
That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it’s reconciled, accepted, someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.
Sarah Dessen (The Truth About Forever)
So true, even when I start thinking that I’m okay, that I can handle this, someone says it out loud and it feels new, so raw all over again… like an open wound that is simply not meant to heal. I miss you. R.I.P.
