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

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.
