Expect a positive outcome. Anticipate it. Plan for it. It will come. At the end of this progression are the rewards: the pleasures of freedom, the joys of growth, and the sense of mastery derived from having dealt with a loss in a "right proper way." And through all the sadness and pain will come the one thought that can make you internally smile again. You have loved. You will learn that you can survive, pain eventually lessens, healing does occur.
