After writing about moving on yesterday, I have to also say that there is still a part of me that feels sad about the ending of a long relationship, a family, and the lack of contact with someone I was with for so many years.  

I learned that word "and" - the idea that two conflicting feelings exist within us simultaneously - happy/excited about a new life and also sad/wistful about the loss of the old life.  It's good to know that it's not that unusual to feel this way.

Dear sweet Robin - yes, it is not unusual to feel this way at all but please remember those sad, wistful feelings of what you lost are a sham. What you lost was the DREAM of a family, a husband and wife, a loving union. Very different from the real thing. Your life now is real.

It's so easy to forget that.
