The Great Ache

"There are Great Aches of loss of what we had, of regret for what we've done, of pain for what never was or never will be, of endings, real or imagined, of lives we shudda/cudda/wudda had; there are real and imagined rejections, identities thieved by the demons of practicality, insecurity, uncertainty or just lousy timing. There are the Great Aches of "if I had only," "why didn't I," "why did I," and "why me" or "why not me."

Your ache may not be mine. Mine may not be yours.
May we all, somehow, be healed. "

-- Pamela Cytrynbaum
