never confuse people.

never confuse people who are always around you with people who are always there for you.

Note to Self:

YOU gotta do this for YOU.
this is for YOU.
this isn’t about anybody.
live for YOU.
honor YOU.
and NEVER lose sight of that.

grief is not.

i had my own notion of grief.

i thought it was the sad time that followed the death of someone you love.

and you had to push through it to get to the other side.

but i’m learning there is no other side.

there is no pushing through.

but rather, there is absorption. adjustment. acceptance.

and grief is not something you complete, but rather, you endure.

grief is not a task to finish and move on, but an element of yourself – an alteration of your being.

a new way of seeing. a new definition of self.
