"Starfish, also known as sea stars, (they are not fish) are capable of regenerating even one arm into a whole new body. It can take anywhere from a few weeks up to a year for this to happen."
We're all starfish. There are things, people, situations, that sometimes cut us so deep that we sometimes feel like we've lost a small part of ourselves. Sometimes we lose ourselves as a result of staying in a situation for too long. Sometimes we lose ourselves because whoever we were attached too was ready to leave before we were. There are times where we may even have to remove ourselves from a situation before we were able to become detached. Whatever the case, no matter how painful it may be, we will eventually grow from these experiences. It may take a few weeks, it may take a few years, but we'll grow.
