Experiencing loss is interesting – and not in the good sense.
What’s interesting about it is you can lose some of the most important things and/or people in your life, and it can cause you to think, “Ok, it can’t get worse than this.”
NEVER THINK THAT. You can ALWAYS lose more.
And sometimes that loss has nothing to do with death – it’s just that people change, they grow apart, or they just stop caring.
And here’s the thing: No matter how much YOU have changed, or grown apart – the actual end or cutting off of that thing or person is still incredibly painful.
And shutting down won’t make the pain go away; trying not to feel the pain will only prolong the healing because the truth is, no one will be there for you forever.
And that’s life.

Truth may march o’er cracked stone floors
through bloodied hearts arrayed,
And Pain might prevail whilst cities lie
In dust and agony weighed,
Yet Reality trudges onward
through the graying scenes of life,
Gripping in one whitened fist
Truth’s heartless, edged knife.
