"When we experience a loss, a hole opens up inside us. It is almost as if the loss itself ploughs right through us, leaving us gasping for air. We bleed through that opening and sometimes old wounds are re-opened. Things we thought were safe inside, patched up and healed, prove painful again in the wake of the new pain."


Grief is an individual journey, my experience, my pain cannot be compared to another's - it is no greater or less than another's.
