It was a day like any other.

It stated, hi, you haven’t believed about me in a although, have you?
It stated, your dad’s anniversary date of death is approaching.
It stated, I bet you haven’t processed all of these feelings however have you?
As tears streamed down my face, I believed to myself, does it ever finish? Is there EVER a moment when you really feel like grief will go away?
But I consider I am on a quest with no options.

I believed I was completed becoming caught off guard.
How could I be?

It will go on sneaking up on me at random occasions.
And I will reside inside the space among appreciate and grief forever.
So rather than worry grief
My new objective is to tackle it head on
To accept it by my side, but then let it leave, as if it was a passerby.
To let the feels flow with out JUDGEMENT
So the subsequent time grief sneaks up on you
I want you to know we can fight this battle collectively
Are you grieving an individual appropriate now? How do you heal from it? Let’s speak.
