How will I get over this? How will I survive? I’m not a crier; I’m not even that sentimental. These are the words of people who have recently lost someone near and dear to their heart and they are right about the world they knew changing because when a dear friend leaves this world? The space you allowed for them in your heart is now empty and can’t easily be filled by another.
They were your rock, the person you turned to when you wanted to discuss topics that were close to your heart. Now who will you be able to trust? Who will you allow to see your tears fall? And know, they are not judging you; they are merely accepting you for who you are. With whom will you go out for an afternoon stroll on the beach? The list of questions is endless, but in time you will find answers to all the questions you have today.
Words have little meaning for you at this time; no amount of them will make you feel any better as they just wash over you like they would off an umbrella on a rainy afternoon. Your memories are full of woe, full of those pictures that bring nothing but sadness.
In time, although you will find it difficult to believe at this moment, your memories will change; the pictures you have of this person in your head will also change; the pictures that once brought about only sadness will be replaced by pictures that bring about happiness and smiles of contentment. Your memories will be of the happy times you shared with this person, the times you laughed together, the times when you were just happy to be in each other’s company.
Time moves on and with it come changes, for good or bad, nobody I have met to date has the power to alter how it flows. What I do know is that with the passing of time, we eventually adjust to all the changes that occur around us.
