The thing about happiness is that you can never tell when you’ve reached the top but you can only compare where you are to where you’ve been. You’ll never know if the love you let go now, will be the one you’ve been searching for all your life. The one that’s meant to be. Many of us live with regrets, often losing loved ones throughout the course of life to the perils of long distance, to unresolved conflicts, to parental interference or to life itself.
As the years go by and these fond memories drift in and out of focus, you start to forget the face but the feelings remain strong and you wonder, “What if?”
Whether it’s your best friend from high school or a lover sometimes we leave little bits of them in our life hoping to avoid them until the day comes when we are able to revisit these memories with instead of longing. You remember their laughs, how they made you feel when they walked into room, the fights and tears, laughs and kisses.
Katy Perry’s hit from her melancholic teen driven nostalgic album Teenage Dream captures precisely the beauty of youth through the song “The One That Got Away”.
From “Teenage Dream” to “Last Friday Night”, Katy continues her drive down high school nostalgia. Her latest video is cinematically gorgeous and emotionally powerful as she and actor Diego Luna play star-crossed lovers to perfection. One of the best videos from Katy we reckon. Watch the video here:
Share with us your story, have you had that someone that got away? Or did you get them back? Nevertheless, always remember that sometimes the one who gets away is also the one who brings you closer to yourself.
