Ephemeral

she was like others:

ephemeral and fleeting.

I will never leave.


8:30am

Tomorrow evening I am going to have the conversation with Dennis and Brad about Michelle and not seeing her in the future. I need to get the logic behind the decision organized so it is coherent for them.

  1. We love Michelle, we miss her.
  2. Michelle no longer wants a future with me (I was going to say “us”…I think “me” is better).
  3. We need to move forward with our lives. We can’t hope Michelle will change.
  4. This is painful. It is okay to be sad, hurt, angry, confused, scared.
  5. These feelings may never go away but they will diminish with time.
  6. Some people will come and go in your life. I will never leave you.

Number 2 is still difficult for me. It will be difficult for the boys. I hope they are further along in their grieving than I give them credit for. The 6th point…it makes me feel good to remind them of it.

 

One thought on “Ephemeral

  1. I am glad for writing to make you know what a exceptional experience my cousin’s daughter had visiting your webblog. She came to understand plenty of pieces, with the inclusion of what it’s like to possess an excellent coaching mindset to make others clearly learn about certain grueling matters. You truly did more than our expectations. Many thanks for offering those productive, trusted, explanatory as well as fun guidance on the topic to Sandra.
