“ We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there. ”
Sounds similar to my own thoughts. And I haven’t even truly lost anyone. yet. And those aching feelings are the ones I wish to avoid. And by avoiding I miss so much experience.
How long does it take for the sadness to wear off? How many days before I can think about something else, anything else? How many weeks before I feel half as normal as I did last week? How many months before I’m okay again? Will I ever be myself again?
