To accept a situation that you didn’t want to be,
To say goodbye to someone you actually want to see,
For me – is one of the hardest things to do.
Experience seems to have counted for nothing.
Yet, without truly accepting, you cannot move on,
Energy just gets expelled and eventually strength is gone.
So – what needs to be done to move on from this dilemma?
Firstly, I’m thinking of re-framing ‘acceptance’ as being something that needs to be understood – if I could.
My default position when saying ‘good-bye’ is to cry; mourning for what may be lost or forgotten.
But my default needs to change and my mourning needs to stop because-
what is forgotten can be remembered, what is lost is sometimes found
And goodbye is, often, as final as we want to make it.
