I have not read this book, but I have a friend who did and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do not generally use quotes from fictional novels to inspire and motivate you but I think this is some pretty sound advice. People so often ignore the way they are feeling when they are hurt, and I know from personal experience that it is the easy way out. That being said you will never be free of those emotions by pushing them away, I hate confrontation with a passion and confronting emotion is just as hard as confronting people. So I personally think that this quote is a good way to think about moving on with your life because there is no point dwelling on the past.
