Around 10 Years Ago…
I was taken out at the knees. My vision of my life, my future, lay in broken pieces before me.
My concept of who I am and where I belonged lay there to.
Nothing was as it was, nor could ever be again.
A fog of despair clouded my view and an invisible knife twisted in my soul.
Everything had changed in an instant.
There have been several times over the last ten years where I have experienced this sudden loss and despair.
I lost a soulmate in an instant.
I lost a career I loved and was amazing at, in an instant.
I lost a best friend in an almost instant.
I lost my income…, I lost myself.
I just didn’t see it coming.
During the current Pandemic parents are losing children, children are losing parents, lovers are losing lovers, and spouses are losing spouses.
It’s happening quickly, without discrimination and often in the most painful and lonely of circumstances.
And it’s happening SO quickly.
Everything has changed in an instant.
None of us could have predicted this. None of us saw it coming.
– Meeting You Where You Are.
I won’t even pretend to know your suffering. Your experience is yours alone.
Whatever your loss… my thoughts and prayers are with you.
I know I felt very alone, very misunderstood. Forgotten even.
You are not forgotten. You are not alone. I see you.
Support is around you when you are ready.
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself.
In this darkest of times be your own best friend.
Over the coming days I will be sharing the things that helped me.
Take or leave them. Try them on, or not.
I want to offer something and I do know that what worked for me may not work for you… And perhaps it might.
For now be with you.
Allow and release the emotions safely, in your own way.
And if you want to talk, to reach out to me please do.
