Who doesn’t want to see the inner workings of anothers personal growth journey?
This journey of grief is the most multi-layered, nuanced, multi-faceted, up and down, crazy rollercoaster ride I’ve ever been on. It’s not simply me grieving Dans passing. I’m grieving so many things all at once, here’s a few:
Dan not being here obvs
The kids growing up without their Father
The life I thought I’d have with Dan
My old life I had with Dan before he got sick
The fact that society is not setup to support people going through intense grief, support systems are not there as others are un-educated around grief and not emotionally available to properly support those grieving – which is hella fucking hard and lonely I tell you what.
