Sometimes it takes a while.
It takes a while for things to matter again.
It takes a while to feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, and the wind whipping through your hair.
For the little things to flood your heart with joy.
For the pain to subside and for love to take its place.
But in the end, sometimes you need to hurt.
To feel empty, lonely, discouraged and discarded.
Sometimes that's all you need to feel human again.
