grieve hard for a year and eventually real life starts to creep back in
no one can live forever, i have to accept that truth
when i was accepting the pain as a constant companion. it was like it was starting to dictate if i was happy or not. i think it gets to a point that you realise it is okay to grieve but not take it with you everywhere. it becomes like an excuse why you carnt be happy? for eg....i want to enjoy my life and go and find what i like but how can i behave this way when i am grieving? should i be unhappy forever? in our own time this comes to us...the letting go..and it is another saddness. we are funny us humans always over thinking how we should behave! but in the end you have to give yourself a chance/break. healing comes and living again begins your next chapter
Time. Do we ever really heal?
when our son no longer came home and we had a memorial service for him. healing is still the hardest part. no parent should have to do this.
It still didn't hit me.
