“Some people, they can’t just move on, you know, mourn and cry and be done with it. Or at least seem to be. But for me… I don’t know. I didn’t want to fix it, to forget. It wasn’t something that was broken. It’s just…something that happened. And like that hole, I’m just finding ways, every day, of working around it. Respecting and remembering and getting on at the same time. ” ―Sarah Dessen
*In Memory Of My Grandfather…Великою людиною дійсно ніколи не може бути втрачено або забуто- A great man can never truly be lost or forgotten.*
“They say that a part of you dies when a special loved one passes away. I disagree. I say a part of you lives with your loved one on the other side.” ―Daniel Yanez
What To Say To A Loved One Who Suffers With Depression
“What do you have to be depressed about?!” would be high on the list of things NOT to say. Yes, occasional depression is normal, but anything lasting longer than two weeks is not. Be gentle and take people seriously when they trust you enough to share their thoughts regarding depression. Too many people die because no one took them seriously, or because “friends” and “loved ones” abandoned them completely.
Happy Birthday to my favorite Virgo…The Anchor, who is rooted in friends, family, laughter, love, and just plain goofiness. You make so many of my days more laughable and easier to smile at. XOXO.
It’s Not Something One Should Ever Get Used To…
“If you have ever lost a loved one, then you know exactly how it feels. And if you have not, then you cannot possibly imagine it.” ―Lemony Snicket
Beautiful & Honest
“Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.” ―John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
