There are hundreds of pictures of her. She's always dressed in crop-tops with high-rise flowy skirts. I look at the men who surrounded her and the way they gazed at her and I can just tell they loved her. It's strange to think that these men knew her better than I do.

The breakup of my family taught me more about mending and resilience and forgiveness than any loss of a romantic partner ever has.

I wish I could delete the moments where I ever felt "old" because to think that now is just stupid. I saw the number 24 written on the cover of a book while on the train, and clearly thought these three things -- I am older than that number. I have not read that book. There is so much I have yet to do.

You're there when I'm curled up in bed, cozy socks on, skimming the Times. You would have leaned over me, brushed your lips over my forehead, and pulled out the DealBook section for yourself to read. Lazy Sundays have not been the same.

The world is filled with a**holes. They are everywhere. They hit your parked car without leaving a note, cut you off while waiting in line at Whole Foods and literally knock you out of the way on their mad dash to the subway so you face the closed doors instead of them.

At 28, this place of heartbreak feels so familiar, like an old scar, tingly to the touch. Yes, I've been here before. No, it isn't less painful. No, it isn't less sad. But, yes, I do know my way around this place, and I now know how to gently make my way home.

Early on in the process of building my son's music career, I sought advice from an industry veteran who is also a faith-based family man like I try to be. I asked him what I could do as a father and manager of my son to help him most. His advice was simply three words: 'Protect his heart.'
