Who do you trust to listen to you and your loss?
Everyone knows grief exists, but they would prefer it to exist at the edge of society, between the people who experience it.
Living in a new reality without our person confronts all kinds of feelings about who we are now, without them.
We never expected to feel so supported by your comments of encouragement or simple “me too” messages or a “hang on in there, it does get better”. Knowing other people were able to survive such loss gave me hope and shined a light on a future that I thought I’d never be able to attain after losing our mum.
Do you feel like society is more or less accepting of your grief since the pandemic began? Do you feel like there is more space for the conversation? What do you think?
I would like a conversation, where we talk about life and living and what it all means. Maybe after, my brain will turn into liquid and drip into dreams.
I am looking forward to the photography opportunities, the cold wind and then being cosy and warm indoors. 🤍
Before, roller skating meant the art of learning to love myself without having to aim for perfection, and now it is about freedom and healing. When I am skating, I can be whoever I need to be, feeling anything I need to feel.
Shrunken shoulders, bent in pain
Sadness and tears unrestrained
Bring forth whispers of your name
