Yes, One moment in the sun beats a lifetime of rain.
When relationships don't work out it's natural to focus on the ending. Instead of remembering the joy you felt in the beginning you hold onto the pain.
We'd all do better if we could be like women after child birth. Somehow they are able to FORGET about the pain of giving birth when they start to consider having a second child. Love is it's own reward.
The first time we fall in love we're completely flying by the seat of our pants. In all honesty it takes more courage to fall in love a 2nd or 3rd time. (After you have been hurt).
To give up on the possibility of finding a new love on a planet which has over 6 billion people on it..... is to give up on yourself.
Apply the lessons you learned from your past as you move on towards the future. It really comes down to knowing who you are, what you want, and need in a mate. We all select our own friends, lovers, and spouses. Hopefully with time and experience we gain enough wisdom to be able to spot the person who will love and adore us for who we are and we feel the same way about them. People find new love all of the time!
You just have to be willing to let go of your past in order to see your potential future.
