Losing my father suddenly 5 months ago to a heart attack has been one of the most painful experiences of my life. Feeling tired in my soul on a daily basis is a feeling I haven't gotten used to. In fact, some days it is crushing, especially the physical pain I have in my heart. The most shocking thing to me, is how much I craved and needed human interaction and support and received very little. Most people assume I am doing fine, but how can they relate when both parents are still living or have never felt such a profound loss. Going through this period of grief alone is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I am so grateful God had my back this week by blessing me with Option B @sherylsandberg
after sinking into a very dark place. I read this book in 2 sittings at Panera Bread crying my eyes out. For the first time this year, I have felt hope that one day joy will enter my life again in the smallest moments and circumstances. I am posting this in the hope that this book will help another person who is grieving.
