Bad News

How strange that the moment something you didn’t want to hear comes to light, everything changes. Everything seems to, anyway. But really, nothing is different. This thing that has seemingly ruined you still existed in the moments of ignorance prior to learning it. Moments before, the world still spun. This detrimental event existed in the moments the world still spun. So, why do we suddenly feel different? Why can’t we go back to the peace we had before? Not knowing didn’t make the reality any less true. 

Nothing changed and we feel the pain of it, anyway.
