  •  don't pretend life is okay (12+ / 0-)

    right now, for you, life is not okay ...

    Don't worry about how others handle their grief or they appear to handle their grief...
    Each person's grief and  manner of handling it is unique to them .. you must wear the grief that fits the unique you ...

    My father died 11 years ago this month ...in fact, today is the anniversary of his funeral ... and I still miss him terribly
    ... and I miss my mom too .. she died Christmas time 2009 .. and I don't really like doing Christmas now (okay, to tell you the truth, I always felt my mom overdid Christmas ..really overdid the decorating and everything else, but all I want to do is go to church on Christmas eve .. and nothing else now, because it makes me miss her to do presents or decorations in the house or send Christmas cards)...

    I will share this with you ... from my own experience and that of practically everyone I have known ... time does help ... be patient and gentle with yourself ... you will learn how to laugh and sing and enjoy things again ..you will always miss them, but you can find good things in life again ...

    Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
