I was once desperately in love with someone I knew I would never be with, knew I should never be with. Yet I couldn’t accept that this love would never come to pass, and for over a year I sat in agony.
One night a dream visited me, confirming this love was not to be. I woke with an immense pain in my chest, and as it dissipated I realized that that was it. The agony was over. I moved on with my life.
There are all manner of things we can’t change about our lives. All we can do is sit with them, letting our bodies work them out in their own time.
