When you have the desperate feeling that only one particular person (or job or house or outcome or whatever) can fill the empty place inside, the best (and scariest) thing you can do is let go.
“It's hard to let go of anything we love. We live in a world which teaches us to clutch. But when we clutch we're left with a fistful of ashes.” Madeleine L’Engle
“Open wide your heart. . . .” 2 Corinthians 6:13
