The following is from I Could Do Anything If I only knew what it was, by Barbara Sher.
Once someone I cared for deeply did something very unethical, so I tried to totally revise my feelings about him. “He’s not a good person,” I said. “I don’t know how to love him anymore.”
And a very wise woman told me, “Your love belongs to you. You mustn’t let anyone touch it, not even him. You can keep away from him, but don’t try to destroy your love. That love is yours. Keep it.”
It won’t really break your heart to remember something that got snatched away from you, even though it may feel that way.
Prompt: What got taken away from you?
