Let them be Don't fret about the misplaced ring, it is already lost, or worry about your job, you retired long ago. The shiny new car on your driveway, has rusted away in the scrapyard. That beautiful house you scrimped and scraped to buy is a pile of builders rubble, and your delightful children have become grandparents. So, stop worrying about things that have already happened. Let them go, let them be.
