Heartbreak is pretty much one of the most romantic things that can possibly happen to you in your life. It’s way more romantic than just staying with your partner for another three or four more years and then kind of growing apart and breaking up. In a way, them dumping you is probably doing you a great favor, because you get the opportunity to feel one of the most intense and soul-shaking-to-your-core, deep and most alive feelings that there is to feel as a human being. I say ‘thumbs up’ to heartbreak because people have based their entire artistic careers on heartbreak. It is a gift and it sucks.
