All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” ~ Henry Ellis
This is so true.
It's a tricky one, trying to move forwards with life while still remembering and honouring your partner that is comfortable for you.
I've kinda come to the conclusion it is always best to do what's right for you.
Some people will criticise you for letting go too soon, others will criticise you for holding on.
Basically, you can not please everyone, so please the only person who matters here.
Stuff everyone else, and their opinions, their advice.
Do what works for you.
You are all that matters here.
