I had a perfect view of love growing up and the scene is always like in those Disney fairy tales. A knight in shining armor shows up, slays the monster hiding me in the tower and we ride off the sunset to our happily ever after.
Well, my mom told me this scene does not always happen. She told me boys will break my heart but I will come out stronger.
I had my first heart break in high school. Being the hopeless romantic that I was, I thought it was going to last forever. Which did not happen, of course, and I remember my mom telling me that it is okay to get hurt because it is a part of falling in love. She said that getting hurt will teach you life lessons which you will carry with you when you grow up.
And she was right. After every heartbreak, after moping around and strumming my blues in my guitar on h1a, I always manage to stand up, move on from every fall, and love myself even more.
