Grief is selfish.

This is not inherently a bad thing, but it's true.

The person who left is gone.

In my case, forever.

It is right and just to honor their memory, but that memory is a part of YOU, not THEM. It's what YOU remember. They're not here to do it for you.

Grief is your body crying out for a connection that is no longer there. It is about what YOU miss.

Grief is selfish, but sometimes you need to be just a bit selfish in order to heal.

Or so I'm told.

I'm still working on that.
