Love can last however long you want it to last. With God's help you can love unconditionally.You can love even when it hurts you the most. Yes, it hurts sometimes, but through those moments you figure out who you are and why you want to be that. You become a better person through the heartache. Pain teaches you to trasure the moments in which its' presence cannot be felt. It shows you how to live life and how to be better. On a boatride how to not get wetter. It takes you to the places you've never been and drags you through the places you never wanted to go. Life is the lesson, pain is the teacher, and you are the student. Love can be painful, but without learning where would we be? You could have the most horrible, beaten up violin by now, but it's in your power and only in your power that you can turn it into some wonderful song. However, that's completely up yo you.
