No person has the right to condemn you for how you repair your heart or how long you choose to grieve because no-one knows how much you're hurting. Recovering takes time, and everyone heals at his or her own pace
This is so similar to the prayer I picked out for my mothers prayer card at her funeral. I never knew this was a Native American prayer for the grieving. Being part Native American, I see I picked the right words 💔
It's all in the way you want to be remembered. Be the girl with a smile on her face. Be the girl who stands up to her fears. Be the girl who takes chances and risks everything all because of love. Be THAT girl.
You deserve honesty. You deserve transparency. You deserve someone who respects you enough to never lie to your heart. You deserve appreciation. You deserve loyalty. You deserve someone who would never abuse your trust. You deserve love.
For many grievers, tears come in private places like the car or the shower, the garden or the closet . Just because you don't see us crying doesn't mean we aren't feeling the loss. To the contrary, we feel their loss QUITE DEEPLY.
