I remember a story about Kylie Minogue that went something like this. She had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and her boyfriend sometimes found her crying on the bathroom floor.
He would firmly tell her, “Okay… honey, you can cry just for only five minutes, then I am taking you to the bike for a ride.”
She would think, “Hmm…the bike ride sounds pretty good”.
This is the attitude to take. It doesn’t matter that sorrow comes again and again, just each time draw a line in the sand. And beyond that line make something else happen.
