Feel like I am struggling uphill the whole time these days.
Huge hugs Promise!
Thank you for the hug Amy
You made me smile Katie with your description of why we get theses days....well, because it sucks LOL. Thank you
But Josie, you did help me a lot. You reminded me that I am not doing this alone and even in the middle of your pain, you stopped to help me with mine. Thank you.
Promise you are in my heart...
Thanks Lori, life is just one big struggle right now. I ought to be happy but I am not. And then I feel selfish because I know everyone else is having a hard time too.
You are not being "Selfish" you are "Hurting" right now, you just need a little time and space as you find your way...
You need to be able to put yourself first right now.
After losing someone Special I believe we are Lost for a while.
Change is hard for us to deal with, especially life-altering change when a loved one passes whether family or friend.
I miss my beloved Mom terribly even after ALL these years.
It's twenty years this Christmas.
I also lost someone to Suicide and even though it's been eight years I still miss him.
Just be good to yourself.
If you need time Alone take it.
Some family members and friends may be worried about you but sometimes we do need/want time alone.
To grieve, to reflect.
May you find Peace.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve, no time limit.
This year as I celebrate Christmas quietly with my ds I honour my Mom by celebrating Christmas and remembering the Greatest Gift of ALL Gifts is Love.
I hope my dd comes for Christmas but it is her choice and she knows that she is Loved whatever she chooses to do.
Sending you a "Virtual" hug...
