I love you sister
Although this may be written about the loss associated with the death a loved one, many of these are relevant to losing the one you love due to a breakup. So many are true for me and something I experience daily. You don't know someone for 12 years and just turn off that part of your heart/brain with a flip of a switch. I'm not like that. This process has been difficult and unbearable at times. Looking forward to the day when the pain is less raw.
During the worst of my grief there were periods of time when a good day for me was waking up and actually crawling out from under the covers. A really good day meant I also showered. On a truly successful day, I made my family toast for breakfast." ~ Shelley Ramsey, "Grief: A Mama's Unwanted Journey"
