Like grieving wasn't already off-the-charts hard? Seriously COVID...enough already.
Anyone else overwhelmed by...well..by EVERYTHING? Accessing inner peace is always important, but it's 2020 so...
Clearly, I'm no movie star!!!! Nonetheless, my Suicide Widow Etiquette story is on YouTube.
COVID-19 and suicide grief both paralyzed me with fear and uncertainty. Anguish quelled when I let go, and learned to accept...and adjust. Accept. And. Adjust. Over and over...Accept. And Adjust.
Blooming authenticity was grief's greatest treasure.
And yet...hidden in today's shadows, greater me-ness waits to be set free.
None of my business, but how are you holding up? I'm iffy...
We’ve all had dreadful teachers…but the Coronaviruses wins the prize.
STOP. Unless you're named as a survivor in a suicide obit, this post is NOT for you. Bail. Sticking around will only disappoint.
If you are listed in that obit, let’s talk.
A bulldozer had to run me over...but eventually hope taught me the difference between pain and suffering.
Clearly, I failed.
So why, why, why do people ask me about suicide prevention?
Not feeling the whole ho-ho-ho-jolly thing?
You have my permission to run for the door the next time someone says,
“You mustn’t be so glum sweetheart; it’s the happiest time of year. Lighten up!”
Yes, yes, yes, I know. You want to throw eggnog in their face
and kick over the Christmas tree on your way out…
…but let’s not.
Just run away.
