In life, sometimes getting hurt is a necessary path. Do not deny yourself of this experience, but never dwell in it. You have to go through it and not around it for you to get over it. -Dodinsky by deeplifequotes
it's meaningless to say you're meant to be where you end up. It's arbitrarily renaming that 'where you're meant to be'. I don't believe anyone is meant to be anywhere. You are where you are, and end up where you end up.
