Tears Quietly Roll

Now I CryNow that I’ve taken care of the business of death, I no longer need to numb myself from the pain of loss. Now I cry. Softly. Quietly. The tears roll down my cheeks. I miss my dad. I really miss him.

    I know exactly how you are feeling Kitt, lost my mum at the end of November and my dad in January. Understand totally the watching of mindless TV, my switch off is mindless candy crush! I always use it just to stop my mind thinking and give myself a rest.
    I never expected to feel the grief like this, sending you love and hugs x

      Thank you. November and January were recent. Your grief is still raw. Similar to Candy Crush, I do jigsaw puzzles on my iPad. Simply not verbal. Sending love and hugs right back to you.

    Coincidentally, I attended a meeting this morning dealing with the Thomas Fire disaster in our county. The main discussion were steps associated with the WRAP process. This emotion seems normal and healthy for the loss of your father, Kitt. Your family wellness is in my prayers.

    God Bless + Take Care !!!

    Let it flow, Kitt. Such tears can ease the pain even though they do not undo the loss.

      Thank you. My family is supporting me as I grieve. Find that spending time alone allows me to cry. Defended when around others.

    As someone who also lost a father I loved deeply, my heart goes out to you, my friend. I remember in the early days after his death, I cried so much. While it was awful, a part of me knew it was healthy to let the tears out. It is healthy you are crying.

    Thank you for being so open and vulnerable with us by sharing your photo and words. I love you
