Worth Fighting For?

George Bernard Shaw once wrote,

“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”

Clearly, Shaw had his heart broken once or twice.  As far as I’m concerned, Shaw was a punk. ‘Cause you know what? Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do? Give up? Quit? No. I realize now that when your heart breaks, you gotta fight like hell to make sure you’re still alive. ‘Cause you are, and that pain you feel, that’s life. The confusion and fear, that’s there to remind you that somewhere out there is something better. And that ‘something’ is worth fighting for.

But ever so lately, I’m wondering if that something is even worth it.
