Journal Prompt Week 10: Your Favorite Quote Right Now

“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”

This quote comes from Paper Towns by John Green. I thought it was a nice sentence and was sure there was some meaning behind it. I didn’t think much of it.

Fast forward a few years later, and I understand exactly what this means. Two years ago, I left. It was so hard and I struggled with it for weeks, I knew it was probably inevitable but still I worried. Once I left, everything fell into place.

Of course there are consequences from that decision. Both good and bad. And I’m still living with those consequence, heart wrenching and joyous. And it’s something I will continue to deal with.
