In Alice Walker’s Autobiography recapping her marriage and divorce she writes a letter to her ex in the epilogue “To the Husband of My Youth”. Even after they had divorced, she reminisced on the whole marriage and learns from it, and moves on while remembering all the good things that came from the marriage.If only we could implement her way of thinking to the relationships and lifestyles.

“There comes a time where you must let go of the past. Not in bitterness. Not in pain. But in absolute awe of the those even microscopic moments of joy, laughter and peace that once run over you in those times or with that person. For if we treasure that which is sweet, we shall surely continue to ignite a fire of happiness all the days of our lives.” -Comfort Botha
