Drabble #48

Prompt: Revelation

The worst moment is when you realize the people you love are human. And that they’re going to hurt you, even if they don’t want to, because they’re disorganized and forgetful, because they say the wrong thing, because they don’t think, or they don’t think enough, because they’re just not as perfect as you pretend they are. And it’s even worse than when someone does hurt you intentionally, because as much as you’re hurting, you always want to forgive the ones you love. But what’s even worse than all that is when you realize you do the exact same thing.
