Have you ever sat with heartbreak many moons over due? Felt like your heart was aching beyond comprehension while reliving past experiences, remembering time spent and with who. Imagining where you’d be today if you had said “b” instead of “a”, gone ‘left’ instead of ‘right’. Retracing the moments that led up to what changed…
