“No one said it would be easy
But no one said it’d be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we’d come this far”
– “No One Said It Would Be Easy”
Sheryl Crow

I often thought my life should have a soundtrack, as if music should cue certain moments. My iPod has a knack of choosing songs that mirror a moment, as if someone has created the aforementioned background music for my life.
Yesterday, when I wrote that e-mail, it chose “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough”. I always believed that if you loved someone, everything else would follow suit. Distance and differences could never be a barrier.
Then you came along and everything changed.
Sometimes love isn’t enough. Life has a way of creating situations that even the purest love cannot overcome.
I thought I was doing the right thing. Everyone tells me I am.
“Just give it time.”
No one said it would be easy, but no one said it would be this hard.
