There’s a saying that goes, “All good things must come to an end.” And while that may be true, sometimes the end can be bittersweet. This is especially true when it comes to “happy endings.”
We’ve all been there before. We’re watching a movie or reading a book and things are going great. The characters are happy and in love and we’re rooting for them all the way. But then, suddenly, it’s over. The credits start rolling or we reach the last page and we’re left feeling disappointed, even angry.
Why does this happen? Why can’t we have a nice, neat, happy ending like we want?
Unfortunately, real life doesn’t always work that way. People change, circumstances change, and sometimes things just don’t work out the way we want them to.
It’s not fair, but that’s the sad truth about happy endings.
