Human beings have the capacity to do amazing things. Airplanes? Space travel? The pyramids? The crunchwrap supreme? We are capable of astounding things and feats of intelligence that make other species look like total chumps.
But with that comes the capacity for great stupidity. A stupidity that in some instances makes us even beautiful. And it usually boils down to love or our pursuit of it. There's always that one person in our lives that we've penned so much of our hopes on and wanted to make a relationship work with them so badly, but it just never worked out.
That doesn't stop us from obsessing over that person, or deluding ourselves into thinking circumstances will change. When we're in love, we're convinced there's always a chance we can salvage the relationship. Blame romantic comedies, but we never give up hope.
