What is Secondary Loss?
We are truly exhausted physically, but mentally, we are stronger and happier than ever.
It was a downward spiral of pain, and the very essence of mum singed and burnt my soul with that deep sense of loss.
I don’t feel fear like I used to. I’ve learnt that the only thing that you can actually count on in this life is, in fact, change. I don’t try and run away from it anymore; running away takes up too much energy anyway. It’s easier to face it straight on, embrace it, and jump.
I drew upon all my knowledge of the winds, sky, temperature, soil, watering schedule, seasonal changes, and I could not think of what could be causing her sorrows.
Life is good, and I’m enjoying every second of it!
We are one third of the way through 2021. Look at how far you have come, and smile. We are so proud of you.
Another question that we are so excited to hear the responses about.
The very first photo is my lovely mum in a blue ballgown, taken on the 14th of September, 2013. I would have been 13. The royal blue of Mum’s dress brightens and flaunts her clear blue eyes. A faint, hesitant smile has only aged 7 years with fondness and love. Her hair is short, and slightly messy. I love it, but I can imagine mum brushing her fingers through it only moments beforehand.
