My mother died tragically from cancer over a year ago. I think about her every day, but I rarely allow myself to REALLY think about her. I know it’s because the pain is all too much to handle. My boyfriend tells me that I should just face it and let myself cry, let myself grieve, but every time I allow myself to do so, it hurts more than any physical pain I could ever feel. I almost can’t take it. Do you think that with time it will soften the blow, or should I listen to my boyfriend and let the pain set in? Please, I need some guidance. I don’t really have anyone else to talk to about this.
The pain isn’t too much to handle, but you do have to let go. You can waste all of your energy spreading it out, trying to control how you feel the pain, but you’re still gonna feel it. Every last bit.
Let go. You can take it. I promise, you’ll come out the other side.
Don’t let this shit paralyze you.
