Sometimes it takes a long time to realize the truth. Sometimes it takes a long time to realize that no matter how hard you wish or dream, things just weren’t meant to be. It will hurt. Maybe every day. It will go away. Eventually. You’ll get new dreams, and your focus will go elsewhere. But, every now and then, something will remind you. That pain of wanting it so badly will come back up again, and you’ll hurt like it was the first day. But you will be okay. Life will go on. There are other things out there. You will be okay.
