The Way Things Go Sometimes

Once upon a time, I told my girlfriend she needed to move out. 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 got stronger and happier with every passing second. I thought 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 get along really well, but it took a while.
