The Reality Of Loss Here's What I Most Want You To Know

The Reality of Loss   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.  There is no beauty here, inside this central fact. Acknowledgment is everything. You’re in pain. It can’t be made better.  The reality of grief is far different from what others see from the outside. There is pain in this world that 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 hands while you stand there blinking in horror, staring at the hole that was your life. Some things cannot be fixed. They can only be carried.
