"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and fall apart. Then they come together and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."
~ Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart, 1997
