Deep Thoughts...with Dr. Frasier Crane

"You aren't mourning the loss of your boyfriend. You're mourning the loss of the life you thought you were going to have. That's not necessarily a bad thing... Things have a way of working out." ~Dr. Frasier Crane


It's funny when "aha" moments pop up in your life. It could be just a sudden realization, you witness something that enlightens you, or you innocently watch a rerun of a sitcom and a statement just "clicks."

That quote was absolutely right because as soon as I absorbed it, the weight lifted. A few days ago, I wrote about my heart being broken. I'm not mourning the loss of my previous job, my previous company, my previous co-workers. I'm mourning the loss of the life I thought I was going to have being in the position I had worked so hard to achieve and had taken away from me.

I've also not been mourning the loss of the possible love of Mr. Blue Eyes all those years ago. I've been mourning this life I had created in my mind of how great it would be to live the rest of my life growing from the relationship we had started to develop. So good, so close, so connected.
One of my constant struggles is being able to let go. I just discovered the key: understanding exactly what it is that you need to let go of. That makes all the difference in the world.
