bravery is putting
one foot in front

I like it. Those of us who have ever been in love or thought we were in love, know what it's like to have our heart broken. But I agree that time moves on. Not all love leads to heartbreak. And probably without taking another chance to find love, you will miss an opportunity to love again.

Simple, to the point, and I believe that too. It is a good read.
