As you know, my brother unexpectedly and suddenly passed away over 2 weeks ago. It has been a hard time and I have been trying to stay strong for my dad and for my two nieces. Quite frankly I am sick of staying strong for others. In doing so, I have not been able to grieve for the brother that I lost and some have forgotten that I lost someone too.
Some A$$holes have even told me how I should be grieving. And, this really pisses me off! How can someone tell another how they should grieve?
There are only two people that have the same DNA as my parents; my brother and me. Now, there is just one - me.
Me. That is the person I need to focus on moving forward.
How can you give to others when you have left nothing for yourself?
My heart has been filled with the thoughts and prayers of many. The blogging community has reached out to me and supported me in ways I never thought possible. I appreciate every one of your emails and comments.
I am sure I will be leaning on all of you in the future and please forgive me if my next few blog posts aren't the cheeriest.
