The Way Things Go Sometimes

I told my girlfriend she needed to move out, and to my surprise, she did so that very day. I figured she’d get lonely and fearful of having to be by herself and wouldn’t be able to live without me. But instead, she actually just got stronger and happier with every passing second, it seemed like. I was thinking to myself, “Damn, this wasn’t supposed to happen.” But then I finally just admitted that this was exactly what was supposed to happen. Now, we actually get along pretty well.
