Hiding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy doesn't make you nice, it just makes you a liar.

Don’t forget you’re human. It’s okay to have a meltdown. Just don’t unpack and live there. Cry it out. Then refocus on where you’re headed.

Wow that really hit home skb! I've had a few after my Boo passed and felt kind of  silly for them, but it is all part of grieving and then moving on. Been there done that after losing DH.

Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is
