Grief is private. We go about it in our way. In our own time. Only someone who has never grieved would be callous enough to assume that just because in that second of time you are able to stand upright there are not other moments you are sobbing in bed.
One day — they will know. Grief is the price we pay for love. And all of us love someone.
There are no words to make it ‘better’. It is your journey. Through a swamp that sucks at you incessantly.
I am deeply sorry this pain has come into your life. Let no one tell you how to feel about it, how long to feel it, or try to fix it for you. It is part of you now. To attempt to pretend it is not is a disservice to the love which birthed it.
Many blessings to you and your family as you walk this journey. ❤
