I just couldn't help but really understand when she kept saying it's not a bad thing because it's not. Being bitter or understanding the downfalls of what goes on comes with the new territory you under. The raw feelings you will feel such as heartbreak and depression is something expected. I dealt with it head on and I can really say it will come and it will go; and typically when it's gone you can't help but think that was it? I would relive that moment again because, it wasn't as bad. With the perks of becoming bitter or seeing reality for what it is, you eventually will come to terms with it and with age, I think you'll figure out your own way to become to cope with it.
