Detachment
I'm going through a phase where I'm having to detach from a lot of pieces of my life.

I've learned about and dealt with three suicides over the last month – two I knew personally, and one that created music which was a strong part of my teenage years.

I've recently seen the remnants of a feral cat that's been around the neighborhood for eight years, ever since she was a kitten.

I'm still disposing of a lot of old things that were a record of who I was and how I developed into the person I am today.

I'm preparing to leave large parts of my life behind (or at least move them to the periphery) in order to embark upon new opportunities.

I detach myself from these events and these things because carrying the extra weight of them around only burdens me.

I allow myself to feel and expel sadness in regards to what is lost, but once an appropriate amount of time has passed, I leave it behind.

Perhaps it is a mere coping mechanism to deal with the impermanence of everything in life, but doing so gives me the strength to carry on and keep moving forward.
