I tried to cram almost four years worth of emotion into 1000 words and it shows.
If you’ve lost someone close to you, and have thought, “I’ll write about that some day…”
If you know the look that Caitlin Corbett describes here:
“So I don’t talk about it. Because I know that if I do, I’ll see that look. That look that says:
“Oh. Are you still not over that?”
One part bafflement, two parts boredom, a dash of pity and awkward all over. That look kills me. Because I’m not over it. I never will be. How could I be? And yet, in every way I am pressured to pretend that I am.”
If you are looking for an honest discussion about grief, or a place to connect with people who understand what you’ve felt and are probably still feeling no matter how much time has passed, then I encourage you to check out this powerful collection of posts.
Thank you again for the opportunity, Shauna. I’m humbled and moved by what I’ve read here today.
