My friend Johanna reposted a quote by Andreas Fransson on Instagram. I really like that she posted it so that I could read it.
“We have to go on with our lives whatever happens. It sounds so definite, and sometimes we want to respect others by choosing to feel bad, but that is just a choice, nothing more and nothing less.
