“Sometimes we need time to grieve for a future that might have been. After a loss of a relationship, friendship, job, or even the loss of the possibility of those things can be a painful process. When a possibility is cancelled out, it can feel like a sort of loss, even if we didn’t really lose anything. Even if we didn’t have it to begin with. Just knowing something can’t happen can be very painful. It can create a state of mourning within us. However, the sooner we let go of that possibility, another one will become open to us. There is no real loss in the universe, just pieces moving toward each other and shifting away from each other. Where there is one, there is another.” –Emily Maroutian
As it turns out, letting go can be a sweet, sweet journey of peace and resurrection and redemption.
It looks a hell of a lot like coming home to myself.
