“Here’s what I most want you to know: this really is as bad as you think.
No matter what anyone else says, this sucks.
What has happened cannot be made right. What is lost, cannot be restored.
Acknowledgement is everything. You’re in pain. It can’t be made better.
There is pain in this world you can’t be cheered out of.
You don’t need solutions. You don’t need to move on from your grief.
You need someone to see your grief, to acknowledge it.
You need someone to hold your hand while you stand there in blinking horror, staring at the hole that was your life.
Some things cannot be fixed.
They can only be carried.”
Someone needs to hear this today.
There are some things in life that can never be restored. There are some things in life that can never be put right.
Sometimes we just need to call a spade a spade – for it really doesn’t help to minimize the shock and pain.
The facts are the facts, and that’s reality.
If only people ‘got that’, it would really, really help.
Your world’s been blown apart, and things can never be the same.
Of course you’re traumatized. This awful nightmare is your life.
