It's about learning what pieces to pick back up and which ones to leave behind. It's about understanding that the person we were before is not the person we are meant to be now. It's about accepting that we do not have to live in the shadows, no matter how home-y they feel. It's about being okay with silence in moments that would once be filled with laughter. Its not science, and it's certainly not pretty, but it is necessary. It's about moving through, in whatever order, at whatever pace, to be able to wake up one day okay with what is now.
