"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear." - C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

You may be asking yourself how you can possibly move on with your life. Your world has changed, and this new reality is unbearable. Try to recognize that a big part of how you are feeling is fear. You may be afraid that you will never experience joy again, that you will never want to participate in activities that used to bring you pleasure, or that you will never connect to others as you once did. Be patient with yourself. The early days can feel unbearable...with each one as overwhelming as the one before. The process of grief takes time, perhaps longer than you might expect.

You do not need to feel afraid, because you are not alone. Others feel as you do. You may want to reach out to a support group in your area to talk with people who are also experiencing loss. You do not need to be frightened, because there are many people who feel as you do right now.

RACHEL MAY

NEVER REALLY GONE

I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START
ITS HARD TO WRITE WITH A BROKEN HEART
SO MUCH MORE I WANTED TO SAY
BUT OUR TIME WAS SHORT
AND YOU WENT AWAY
AND A PART OF ME DIED WITH YOU
AND I CANNOT GET THAT BACK
BUT YOU STILL LIVE ON IN MY HEART
SO THERE IS NO LOOKING BACK
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOUR MEMORY
AS LONG AS I CAN SEE YOUR SMILE
I CAN FIND THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON
AND WALK ANOTHER MILE  
I CANNOT SAY GOOD BYE TO YOU
AS YOU ARE STILL WITH ME
AND AS LONG AS MY HEART KEEPS BEATING
YOU ARE NEVER REALLY GONE.

KEEP SMILING


"Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them." - Leo Tolstoy

When we love someone - be it a friend, family member, or spouse - we open ourselves up to the potential for loss. Yet, we take the plunge, and embrace these relationships, for it is through these connections that we really live. The pain of loss feels insurmountable, but opening your heart to friendship and to love are the keys to truly living again.

Good night little princess

Rachel made some mistakes. We all do. But she always wanted to make things right. To know that there was someone who loved her no matter what. She needed people who cared about her to be there for her. Loneliness hurts everyone and everyone needs to feel loved. She never left my side or hung up the phone without saying I LOVE YOU DAD and knowing that she cared helped me get through the day. She was my rock and my sunshine when all others turned on me and ignored me and i can never replace the bond we shared.
Good night little princess.
Love always
Daddy
