She understands that trying to re-live her possible life track as if 1986 wouldn't existed doesn't make her happier. She feels lost and unsteady for making new choices.
There is also a story line of a father and kid who got seperated by the tragic events of 1986. That story line portrays endless guilt that the father couldn't resolve during the next decade.
