    My little brother passed away four

    and a half years ago, and I am still completely broken because of it. I saw a picture of my friend and her little brother, and I felt so jealous. This is wrong. This is painful.

    My heart goes out to all of you

    who have lost a loved one. It does not matter if you recently lost them or lost them years ago. It never gets easy to deal with it, you just get use to it. The pain will always be there, but just know you are not alone.
