It’s tempting to think that if a particular person were removed,
the situation would be better,
the problem would be eliminated,
but this is a fantasy, because with people come challenges
(opportunities to love I like to say).
So yes, with a different person,
that problem may be gone, but only to be replaced by another.
As long as we are alive,
these invitations to grow in love will never cease,
and for some, that precisely is the problem.
