Wanting what you can't have is such a human thing. It's even worse when what you want is right in front of you, but you cant have it. Once you're just coming to terms with there's a bump in the road, and it makes you want it more.
Then there's that oppotunity to regain something you once had. On the other hand, if you let it go last time, where's the will to keep it this time? and does it really overpower the want of the unobtainable?
