From "Strangers in Paradise", trade volume 15:

Therapist: "Francine didn't leave you, baby...neither did David. They just had to move on with their lives. And that's okay. That's just life. That's what people do. And you have to let them go."

Katchoo: "Why?"

Therapist: "Because one day you're going to meet someone special -- someone who will love you and won't leave you. You don't want to miss it because you were looking over your shoulder at the past."

I thought the same thing when I read that passage Friday morning, on the train. Had meant to say something when I gave it back to you that afternoon but it totally slipped my mind. Sorry. Should have known you'd be caught up this far by now anyway.

Difficult words to live by, to be sure, but wise.
