Seeing Brooks Forester break Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock’s heart into a million pieces on last night’s episode was probably one of the most painful things we’ve ever had to watch. To be completely blindsided — on national television — by the man you love (and are already picturing as the father of your children)? Gut-wrenching.

Though it’s been a few months since filming for The Bachelorette 2013 wrapped, there’s no doubt that watching herself go through that heartbreak was not a pleasant experience for Desiree. Nobody wants to re-live that sort of pain.

Yet Desiree tweeted multiple times during last night’s episode, and her mood was surprisingly upbeat. “Hearts may break but spirits stay high.. Stay tuned next Monday for the finale! #happytears #thebachelorette,” she tweeted on Monday night.

Happy tears? What could she possibly mean by happy tears?! A few hours after the show, Des posted another update. “Thanks to everyone for the love. Truly appreciated! #lovemytwitterfam #staytuned #thebachelorette #finaleAug5th,” she wrote.

If you ask us, but Des seems to be implying that she will get her happy ending by the time the finale is through. So what happens? Does Brooks regret his decision to leave, come back, and ultimately get down on one knee to propose?

At this point, it’s only speculation. But Des’s positive tone gives us hope. And we really need a bit of hope in our lives right now.
