When someone new enters your life,
Your world expands.
They get their own chair at your table
And their own mug in your cupboard.
There are more events on your calendar
And more laughter in your life.

When they leave,
Your world shrinks again.
There is sudden silence and emptiness in your house,
No cooking noises in the kitchen,
More time on your hands
And deep sadness in your heart…

You now need to relearn how to live without them in your life again.
You have to remember the “before” you
And go back to the powerful, confident, content and happy you
That you used to be…
