Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know." - Pema Chodron
Take a moment, either in a journal or on a scrap of paper, to write down the most important thing you learned about yourself from the person you lost. You may have learned that you are more patient than you realized, that you love more deeply than you knew, or that you are loyal. Every person gives us a gift, and it is valuable to recognize each one as the precious treasure it is.
