Validating my Grief

Grief and depression can really take me down.

Anxiety keeps me quiet and isolated.

It’s an understatement to say pushing back against mental health is simply a challenge. It’s a constant demand on every ounce of my mental, emotional, and physical resolve.

I’m grateful for the perspectives I am gaining in counseling, and the personal growth I realize I am experiencing. I understand it is my own reconnections to myself that have allowed such intense emotions to surface; nonetheless I am fatigued.

It’s been a long week or so dealing with these new emotions I feel over the loss of my mom and I know this is likely just the beginning. It feels like she just died, all over again, as I process feelings I have suppressed.

It hurts as I reconcile how little I know about her, and how much I missed out on.

Life can sure be unfair.
