I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts. You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly. Or perhaps you began losing pieces of them until one day, there was nothing left. You may have known them all your life or you may have barely known them at all. Either way, it is irrelevant, you cannot control the depth of a wound another inflicts upon you. 

Which is why I’m not going to tell you that tomorrow will be a new day or that the sun will go on shining or that there are plenty of fish in the sea. 

What I will tell you is this…it’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary because it makes you so much more human. And though I can’t promise that it will get better anytime soon, I can tell you that it will eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.
