"I know what you're feeling."
"No, you really don't. I'm not ready to let go."
"That's denial. You don't even know. You can't know what you're capable of before you do it. That's why it's called courage. You have to be afraid before you try something the first time."
"You're asking me to let go of everything I know- everything I am- everything I've lived."
"I'm not asking. I'm telling you that you have to. If you don't, you'll hurt yourself even more. And then, you'll hurt the ones you love."
"Love- I'm giving that up, too!"
"I know it's hard, but it's possible. And you are capable of doing it."
"I don't think I am. It hurts too much to let that go. It's a part of me now."
"It's not a part of you. It's a product of you. It's something you created."
"It's the most valued belief I have to hold on to."
"Let it go."
"You will love again. I can promise you that."
"You're taking it away. Why would you give that back?"
"Take the leap. Jump into the unknown. You will understand in time."
"I don't want to understand! I don't want to let go. I want to have my life back."
"That life is the only thing that you can't have back."
"That life is the only thing I care about."
"Nothing lasts forever. Least of all the life you live right now. No pain- no love- no joy- no heartbreak- nothing at all will last forever. Everything changes."
"I don't want things to change! Why can't you get that? I want what's mine. Nothing more."
"What was yours."
"I'm not letting go. I'm not moving on."
"That's just anger. You're already not living. Please, let me ease your pain. I'm your friend. You don't have to be scared."
"But I am scared. I worked so hard to not lose what I had, and ended up doing just that. I'm scared of leaving all of that behind me."
"Take my hand."
"Don't make me do this. I'd give anything-"
"Bargaining. You're desperate. Let go just a little more. Trust me. You won't feel this pain anymore. You'll feel the peace that passes all understanding. The burden you carry will be lifted and you'll be free. You can do it."
"Do you know how much I'm hurting right now? Do you understand that I don't want to go on like this? But I can't forget. I can learn from my mistakes. I can make things right again. I just need another chance."
"Take my hand. Come with me. There's no point in feeding this depression. Believe in me. I will make all of the pain go away."
"How will you make the pain go away?"
"Once you accept that this is beyond your control, that you have nothing left to lose, you will be free to take this journey. Take my hand. Let go of the rest."
"I don't want to hurt anymore."
"I don't want to remember anything that happened."
"There are bigger and better things to dwell on."
"I want my suffering to end."
"Then, take my hand, right now."
