There is something that embarrasses me about the idea of someone discovering my body.
This loss has changed you. Losing this person will define who you are and make you someone different. It will shake you to your core and leave you empty struggling to figure out how to survive.
Don’t hide your scars. Embrace them. Feel them. Show them off. Allow these scars to tell your story.
Normal is not an option anymore.
Losing a parent unexpectedly is going back to work after a week and barely being able to function.
How do you replace the love and light of your children when they die?
“That I will not marry the love of my life.”
When your Dad dies, a really big part of your Mom will go, too. She might feel incomplete. There will be a huge piece of her that is missing. A piece that you can’t ever, ever replace. And it will absolutely break your heart.
It can be difficult to explain this feeling to someone who has not slipped past death’s hands.
You cannot possibly begin to heal without releasing the first one and embracing the second.
