This is something I struggle with all the time. Letting go of things that make me sad or mad. I eventually do because holding on to something that hurts is painful. “Maybe if I hold onto it a little longer it’ll hurt less and things will get better!” isn’t very healthy way of thinking. Only way it’ll get better is if you learn to let go of things you have no control of. Fly on May! When you get back that pod will have turned into a beautiful tree.
