Many are suffering. Many in silence. I know of those who have lost loved ones. The pain is always present. No matter what you do, it is there. You cannot escape the pain.
Ghostwriter is one of those I speak of. I can relate to an unspeakable loss we share. Words are not needed many times. Other times it is exactly what you need. LaJenna and Doc are others that come to mind. And many more in our community are hurting and have lost loved ones.
A roller coaster is what you are on when grief comes to visit. Learning to hold on, how to lean in, and when to let go, are the keys to surviving the grief. Nobody can tell you what will help your pain. Because it is your pain. You have to push through. Eventually finding a sliver of hope, then one day… peace.
This photo was given to me many years ago, after losing Dustin. I keep it close and read it often.
I hope it can help you as much as it has, and continues to help me.
Never judge what you don’t understand. Until you have walked in someone else’s shoes, you truly have no idea what they are going through.
Always be kind.
No matter what, always be kind, right?
