I’m not ok.

*BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Posts: 5,462 Part of The Furniture
My dad passed away on Friday :( 

I’m really not ok and I just don’t know how to get through this. I’m heartbroken 
" And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
" So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    it all happened so quickly which I know is a blessing that he wasn’t suffering for long it’s just heartbreaking at the same time.

    It really is heartbreaking. Please make sure you’re looking after yourself, maybe take a bit of time off work if you’re able to do that and be kind to yourself <3

    @independent_  yeah I’ve taken about a week off work, just cause I’m not really sleeping either so I need to make sure I’m in a better headspace to go to work.

    @GreenTea it’s not hit me and it feels like a dream

    I think it’s natural for grief to take a while to hit you. It affects everyone differently.

    Sending big hugs <3

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
