The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Walked Away From

Have you ever been in love with someone? And not that fake love, where you say you “love each other” but you both know (maybe not at the time) it’s just infatuation, and once the honeymoon period fades, so does the “love” that came with it. No, but I’m talking about real love, whatever that…
