Change gone come… by #DeadlyBlogger Cee to the Jay!
It seems like only yesterday that I was faced with the biggest challenge of my life; the sudden death of my mother and then the huge decision to raise my little brother by myself…
1 year and 11 months have passed since my mother’s death… People I talk to say ‘Wow, has it been almost 2 years already, that’s gone by fast’, but for me it hasn’t… Time has dragged out a painful process, a painful wait, and a few painful life lessons for me to learn in these past few years… It’s gone fast for those who knew my mum, who know me… They say I’ve done a great job and that they’re proud of me for ‘all I’ve sacrificed’ and done for my brother and myself and year I guess I’m proud of myself and then sometimes I think, ‘HOW THE HELL ARE YOU STILL LIVING??’…
Death’s a funny thing, it makes you see who the most important people are in your life, it makes you review the direction your going in, makes you question what kind of person you are and where your life is going…. See, for my friends and my family, my mum’s death was sad and tragic, it was a huge loss to them and hard for people to swallow… One minute she was here, and the next she was gone… Their grief and sorrow lasted a while but eventually life goes back to normal, people function again, the hurt starts to heal and life goes on…. For me though, my mother’s death has changed every aspect of my life and nothing has changed for me……….
