After 50, the stages of growth bring deeper happiness. “…only someone who is ready for everything, who doesn’t exclude any experience, even the most incomprehensible, will live the relationship with another person as something alive and will himself sound the depths of his own being.” Rainer Maria Rilke 11. It's kind of like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues.I tend to forget anything negative, and live with the falseness of remembering that everything was perfect. People who do that are just torturing themselves unnecessarily. The day your child lands a job after college is almost as sweet as they day they were born!

So I just thought you may like to know some of the clarity that an additional 3 years of life could possibly provide ☺. I’m not sure I know the difference between letting go and moving on, but I have never had an easy time letting go of things-especially when romantic relationships end.

You’ll want to know if they are who and what they say they are, but don’t go all Columbo.
