For A Long Time

For a long time, I’ve been told that grief came in waves. Sometimes the wave is small and it’s easy for us to tell others how we feel. While other times the wave is huge enough to drown us so we remain quiet despite the pain we feel inside. Despite it all, I never imagined…

The Art of Being Human
