"Love is something we wait for. We imagine our first kiss, our first sex, our first I love you. But we never imagine our first heartbreak. Maybe because it’s too painful to even imagine, but in a way, the pain of love is what truly changes us. It’s the losing of love that makes us who we are. The loss of a parent, of your virginity, of who you thought you might be and your innocence. Those losses are perhaps our first steps into adulthood. Life gets more complicated, but it’s also filled with promise and the possibility to open your heart to new beginnings."
