"Someone's ability to make something work has everything to do with their ability to let go of something that does not work, grieve it, and move on. If something is lost and cannot be fixed, then it is time to wave the white flag and surrender, let it go and make it something in the past. There is a reason why some people are able to lose and come back, and other stay stuck. They can’t surrender and face the feelings and the meaning of some loss, so they hang on to something that is dead."
