“What makes last times so difficult and sometimes so painful is that most of the time we don’t see them coming. We don’t understand, we don’t know that there won’t be a next time. The last time you look at someone, the last touch of a hand, the last kiss, the last time you laugh together… you won’t know it’s the last time until you realise there is no logical or plausible way for it to happen again. So make all your possible last times feel like first times. Live in the moment and try to make the minutes you spend with people you love worth it. This way last times won’t hurt any less. There is no way for us to not be shocked or sad when we realise there won’t be a next time. But at least you’ll know that you’ve always given all you had to make them last.”
