Just had to reblog this. Breathtaking honesty and clarity…… Thank you so much Connie. It’s so important to acknowledge our pain and suffering rather than trying to hide or deny it. Only then we can possibly arrive at some kind of acceptance and healing.
Friends speak to you of the warmth they feel in the wind; you feel only the chill. They speak to you of birdsong, but though the birds sing and all around you it is spring, it registers only distantly with you, like church bells a thousand miles away meant to call only others to comfort.
Others still speak to you of the blessings that come with your loss; you feel only the loss. They speak of silver linings and positive attitudes. You’ve tried to see and wear these, but it only makes you feel more alone. Your rose-colored glasses have been shattered along with your world, and you feel no strength with which to face it.
Pain is a lonely place. This is true…
