Not all love stories have happy endings.
Not all love stories have happy endings. Some love stories just aren’t lucky or strong enough to withstand the harsh realities of life. Because the truth of the matter is, life doesn’t always give us what we want. The perfect variables and parameters have to be set in order for our grandest expectations to be met.

However, life just doesn’t work like that and it doesn’t care about how you feel about it.
