I Was Three...

I was three years old when my own father died.

Many years later, my mother remarried, and my new step-sister told me what it was like when her mother died... she was nine when it happened.

We were both changed forever by those early, incredibly traumatic losses, and I'm sure you were, too...

Stay strong, and love yourself.

I was also 3. Many people assume it's no big deal to me because I was too young to understand it at the time; these people are ignorant.
