A beautifully worded piece about our journey with grief

Beauty from ashes

This is for people who feel lost in their lives at this moment. Let me tell you that it’s not over yet. Everything you are going through is adding so much meaning to your life and making you grow. The very moment you felt disconnected is the moment you know that you’re striving. That you are taking steps ahead, some tiny and some big. Some that take the tiniest thought and some that make you leap in faith. Some that make you feel weak and some that remind you of your strengthened heart.

One thought on “This is for the broken

  1. I completely agree with you here. Recently I was in a situation where for 2 evenings in a row I was unable to assist myself in getting over the dreadful panic attacks that I struggled with on my own due to a wrong doing of a specialist who stopped all medication that I was on without consulting me or asking me why I was actually on that medication. This caused untold distress for me now being alone. In the past my John used to assist me during these and who knew exactly how to get me through what feels like death is around the corner after experiencing me having them for 13 years. It took 3 specialists and my usual GP to get the correct balance which was perfect and since that time I never had further problems with panic attacks. Suddenly I was lost, had nobody but my doggy who did in his own way assist me. Not being able to drive also set me back as my balance goes altogether. That is when I find it really difficult to cope without my life partner who knew me backwards and always saw that I was able to be stabilised. The problem as now been rectified but now that takes more time as it always take 2 – 3 weeks for the medication to kick in……. that’s really difficult for me.
