Regret & Grief Are Processes, Not Closed Loops.

Let go of the carcass that hangs around your neck. Cut it loose

Regret & grief are processes, not closed loops.

If you have dragged it this far, then you have completed half of the process.

You did not choose denial. You were willing to look, so willing that now it haunts you.

Time to cut it loose.

Not by pushing it away; but by embracing it, liberating it into a fire of tenderness that consumes all, even you.

-- Richard Power
