Learning “Your” New Normal vs You Are Normal

While the realization that you have a new normal, and coming to terms with it, are two very different things.  The realization hits you like a ton of bricks in everything you do from the beginning to the end of your day because that person’s presence is no longer there.

Normalizing my loss is where my struggle started.

The first thing I had to learn when Matt was murdered was am I normal?

Life goes on for everyone around you.  But for you time stands still.

What ever you need to get to the next day is okay, that is your normal.

If you need to cry, CRY.  If you need to scream, SCREAM!  Don’t hold on to your pain.
