It is a very painful phase in one´s life, but it is also very bittersweet.
No time in life ever comes back to you. And though it is a very hurtful time, it has its moments. time to experience memories, acknowledge how important they are to you, a cherished time that most people sympathize with that is all of your own, to do as you will.
the time will pass anyway so as painful as it is, be there and don’t let it skip by you or push it away. you must go over the mountain and make that climb. you cannot go around it, or under it. avoiding it will do more harm than good.
