Resonant Words to Remember

Words to remember that have resonated with me after last week at work, even though I’m not the one bereaved.

Headspace Perspective

I stumbled across this picture on social media a couple of days ago. It is from the beautiful CarlyMarie Project.

Most of the words really resonated, because they sum up succinctly what I have been trying to achieve.

What my heart, my soul needs to not just survive, but to thrive.


I say ‘most of’ the words resonated, because I am unsure of the last line, “the more my heart could heal.” I am not sure whether my heart ever can heal. I’m not sure if all the achieving and thriving in the world can make my heart heal. There will always be a Hugo-shaped hole in my heart.

Ultimately, however, it is the overall sentiment that caught my eye.

Not second-guessing, or judging my feelings is something I am trying to achieve.

Grief can be a messy business. My grief is messy because it is entangled with the trauma of my illness.
