My world had been turned completely upside down when I lost my mother.
I really did not know how to ‘get over it’ or ‘move on’ as outsiders advised. It’s hard enough to be dealing with loss, but to add on top of that unsupportive ‘friends’ – who at the first sign of pain they ditch you when you need them most – was worse than I could have ever imagined.
2. Be careful what you ‘turn to’ during this time of pain (and hopefully healing). By this, I mean that when we are hurt we all resort to different measures. For example, I wanted to always be out – drinking and partying every weekend.
Pain demands to be felt.
