This one is for all of you.
Since losing my sister, I have found that people avoid talking about her when they speak to me. I think it is because they are afraid that it will make me sad…or bring back the horrific details of her death.
However, the one thing that brings joy to my soul is talking about my amazing sister. Sharing memories, stories, and pictures of her brings me happiness. Talking about her causes neurons to fire off in the part of my brain that holds all of the most precious and sacred moments of her life story.
That is why I want this post to be an open invitation to all of you. All of you who have lost a part of what made you whole. Whether a pet, friend, sibling, parent, spouse, grandparent, aunt, uncle, child…ANYONE or ANYTHING that you miss deeply.
I want you to leave comments on this post sharing your story.
You can share anything. Memories of your loved one, the story of their death, your feelings after losing them, things you wish you could say to them, picture…ANYTHING.
If you can’t seem to find the words, simply write their name.
I want to know your story. I want to know everything about your loss. I want to know everything you have felt and thought while battling each day without them. I want to know thins that helped you cope. I want to know EVERYTHING.
Sharing your story reminds us all that we are not alone in this struggle.
I am making a promise to each and every one of you that I will read every single word of each of your stories and I will remember your loved ones with you. I will pray for you and I will comment back.
Let your loved ones be remembered.
