....that grief isn't defined by words and equations, or measured by certain traits.
....that what spoke to your soul and made you come alive is something that can now be a huge loss in your life.
...that the longer you wait to make a change that you know is coming, the harder it will be.
....that hatever once made you whole; filled an emptiness; was there as you came out of the dark and healed, is going to hurt like hell when you say goodbye.
...that letting go may be the only way you can reach the next chapter in your life.
....that when the time comes when you have to walk away from memories of when you were broken and found the one thing that worked, that restored your faith in yourself and that let you live again, that it's going to rip your heart out.
....that being afraid of change keeps you from growing.
...that it's possible to feel some things should never end and that what made you complete should never go away.
....that this may be the time for me to fly.
...that you can love something that restored you to living as a normal person so much that it's going to leave fragments.
....that this sadness is about losing the only thing in my life I ever became.
....that letting go of this dream is harder than I thought.
....that these years were some of the best times in my life.
