You'll survive. That's the first thing they tell you after you lose someone. And you know what, they're right. In time, we all find a way to pick up the pieces and move on. What they forget to mention, however, is survival and happiness aren't always the same thing.
....it never hurts less to lose someone so special. It's more difficult losing someone as an adult. I have to continue on as if everything is ok. When really all I want, is permission to fall apart for just a moment.
