On Ask Polly: I Was Dumped After a Freak Accident and I Can't Move On

"Let's pry this shitty story away from your soul, like a sludgy mess of blood and grime and tears and loss. Let's kick it to pieces."

This made me cry so hard. It's been a year since a devastating break-up for me, and this description was a big turning point in my (still continual) process of moving on. Disconnecting WHO you are from a shitty event that happened TO you is so so hard but necessary.
