I don't like the saying, "Your real first love will make you realize your first love wasn't your first love." I think that every love is different. You can't compare them. I was a completely different person when I was 20 compared to the person I am now. I have loved differently. I have loved passionately. I have loved logically. No matter the adverb, each expression of love has been with my entire heart. Don't let the growth of the person who you are becoming diminish what was once the most important connection you had with another individual. Each love is special, and valid, and unique. All because a chapter has been closed, doesn't mean you never read it.
