I had to re-post this, about the feelings we experience after loosing our mum. Yes different for everyone, but this really just really hit the right notes with me. Especially the last paras:
“I am okay. But just because I’m okay doesn’t mean there aren’t a million other ups and downs and incomprehensible feelings that I can’t put into words. Just because I’m okay doesn’t mean there isn’t still a heck of a lot of hurt and pain in my heart. Just because I’m okay doesn’t mean I don’t wish more than anything I could turn back time and change absolutely everything.
But yes, I am okay. And I’m working harder each and every day to surpass that.”
