aye, ted.

"If you’re looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, it’s love. And when you love someone you just, you…you don’t stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes, and call you crazy. Even then. Especially then. You just - you don’t give up. Because if I could just give up…if I could just, you know, take the whole world’s advice and move on and find someone else, that wouldn’t be love. That would be… that would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for."

not super impressed that a quote from a popular sitcom explains me so well…but this is why i struggle with “moving on”. “moving on” in this context is both impossible and nonsensical.
