Escapism is very healthy and can save lives. I don’t know how I would have survived adolescence without the Harry Potter series to dive into. My favorite part of being an author is getting to supply that.
I love Cory and I miss him so much, but he is GONE. Lea, however, is still here and she can’t just stop living because the man she loved died. If we all did that when we lost someone, there would be no one left. There comes a point where you have to move forward and start living your life again. There is no timeline when it comes to grief, you will always have good and bad days, but it looks like Lea is truly happy now and I think Cory would be happy to see her so happy. Therefore I am happy.
