There are times when we're forced to let go of something or someone that we've become attached to, and it's frequently a quite difficult process to go through.

Often when we're affected by what seems to be sadness or loss we're actually only experiencing the birth pangs of a  whole brighter future and a more peaceful experience of life

If they will just recognize that fact it can be enough to stop the negative momentum from continuing. They need to realize that they're then in a much better position in life, because they will have endured a difficult transition, and what this means is that they are much more able to deal with what may come in the future
