A timely post for me on this day.  Though I was working on something in my own words, this pretty much sums it up.

For all those who have grieved and more importantly, for those who are close to some who has or is grieving.

here’s a blurb: “So if anyone tells you some form of get over it, move on, or rise above, you can let them go.
If anyone avoids you amidst loss, or pretends like it didn’t happen, or disappears from your life, you can let them go.
If anyone tells you that all is not lost, that it happened for a reason, that you’ll become better as a result of your grief, you can let them go.
Let me reiterate: all of those platitudes are bullshit. “

  2. yup. I might have thought things happened for a reason before I experienced a cancer diagnosis…now I embrace a quote from another person who struggeled with cancer:
    “Everything happens for a reason …except when it doesn’t”
