[Frasier] The Good Son

Claire: I’m a, well, I’m a mess!  Eight months ago my
         boyfriend and I broke up, and I just can’t get over it.  The
         pain isn’t going away.  It’s almost like I’m in mourning or
         something.
Frasier: Claire, you are in mourning.  But you’re not mourning the
         loss of your boyfriend.  You’re mourning the loss of what
         you thought your life was going to be.  Let it go.  Things
         don’t always work out how you planned; that’s not necessarily
         bad.  Things have a way of working out anyway.
         Have you ever heard of Lupe Velez?
 
Do you think what we mourn for when we have a break-up? Perhaps, we mourn for the thing that Frasier said and it is easier, if true, to deal with it.
