doomed ecosystems

You don’t just love a person, you love who you are with them, the you, you see reflected in their eyes you love the vision of your life with them. When it’s gone, you have to mourn it all the whole ecosystem of connectedness. Old realities can look shabby in comparison.

So true! My dad is still in first year of mourning. He sees things he never saw before and has to see who he is and who he is with his children…all of his kids to a lesser degree are going through the same thing. Well done…thought provoking!

A very astute observation, Anais, I never really thought of it this way. When a relationship ends, you must mourn the lost relationship as well as the person (unless you are the one to leave and then you celebrate both). :)
