Going through grief can make you an emotional wreck. But there are good days and not just the not-so-good ones. Any semblance to normalcy is a welcome distraction but no matter how you want for things to be back to normal, it just wouldn’t be because what is happening now IS OUR NEW NORMAL. The new normal would be trying to live your life one day at a time when you’d rather want to retreat in a shell.
Rolly has been a constant in my life. And him leaving sent every aspect of my life in disarray. Every little thing reminds me of him. I go through the motions. I go through every ebb and flow where grief takes me.
I write to make sense of my grief. I write as a form of release. And when tears are not enough, words flow.
