You know when something you own breaks and you immediately look at it to see if you can fix it?
You know how you gather up the broken pieces and try to put them all back together?
If it’s something that means a lot to you, searching for all the broken pieces to place them all back together can become a mission.
Often it’s hard to think about anything else other than your precious broken thing. Especially if no matter how hard you try there is one piece still missing.
No matter where you search. It’s almost like it’s been stolen from you. Entirely vanished.
Eventually the reality hits you .. Without that piece, your special thing is unfixable.
And you just need to let it go.
