When You’ve lost A Loved One

I now know what it is like when a loved one dies.

Nothing can be said.

For anyone reading this who has recently had a loved one die just hold on.

The grief will come in waves and when you do find what little peace that comes your way you’ll feel guilty,  like it’s not okay to even be okay.

This is normal.

You are normal.

When you feel overwhelmed, as I do often since my 22 year old son died, just tell yourself,

The only thing you need to do is breathe.

Take everything literally one breath at a time.

I have no more words other than,

 “This life is temporary and it is not very long so just breathe and hold on to all those still alive and let them hold you.”

The sorrow is real. Take time to mourn. Don’t listen to, watch or read things that make it worse at times, but give yourself permission to work with (maybe not even through) the pain for now.

Feel free to contact me if you need someone to listen:

My cell phone is almost always by my side: 904-325-8911

MAY YOU FEEL GOD HOLDING YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW.

Amen, Beetle
