When you loose a part of you, its equivalent to loosing a part of your soul. You find yourself in new territory, a place you never thought you would encounter , a new and frightening place. All you can hope is that you learn your way around, that you learn to cope and mourn the piece of yourself that you lost. That soon you learn to live, breathe and conform to the new self you have become. Learning to love thyself without being whole is a challenge that can be overcome. In the end it doesn't matter who I used to be, what matters is who we are now.
