Default "The rest of it becomes an opportunity"

What that did was to harm, and this is the only thing I’m really sad about -- the rest of it becomes an opportunity — it harmed the 43-year legacy that we had worked so hard to build. That legacy was really about rising above difficulties in order to fulfill one’s higher truth and one’s higher destiny.
That's an excerpt from Lindsey's remarks at the recent event when he addressed his split from FM for the first time.

He is saying that the split from FM has a positive aspect, in that it opens up opportunities for him. Without the demands of a long "greatest hits" tour -- and the demands of a certain bandmate -- he is free to become his true creative self. The greatest hits album and the new solo album are just the start. Hopefully there will be a solo tour later this year, and more recording much sooner than there would be if he had to negotiate a timeline with that narcissist and her toadies.

The only downside to the split, in Lindsey's own words, is that it tarnishes the band's legacy, which is a concern for the future. By phrasing his statement this way, he makes it clear that this split is not hurting him in the here and now; in fact, it opens doors for him. Rather than groveling in misery or hurling insults, he is making the best of it and moving on, which is what a mature person does in a situation like this.
