There are some things in life that one can never prepare themselves for. You never imagine a soul-crushing event happening to you, but then it does, and your whole world breaks into a million little pieces.
Maybe it’s a crazy and abusive ex who broke into your house and tried to kill you. Or you witnessed a friend’s mother collapse in the most blood curdling scream because she just found out her family died in a horrific car accident. Or maybe you’ve found yourself reeling in anguish and despair because the ultrasound doesn’t show a heartbeat on your 20 week pregnancy.
It’s hard to imagine recovering from such traumatic and disturbing experiences, but for most, life goes on — it must. One can only hope to spend the rest of their time on this rock with a sense of peace and an idea that happiness and joy can happen again.
