Numbness in Grief

Have you ever felt like you're just going through the motions, like you're stuck on autopilot, after someone you love passes away? It's like you're a robot, mechanically moving through each day, unable to feel anything but the crushing weight of loss.

Some may relate when reading this, when your loved one was ripped away from you, it was like a piece of you went with them. It's hard to explain how to feel because the pain is too raw, too overwhelming.

The thing is, grief doesn't come with a manual. There's no "right" way to feel, no roadmap to navigate the pain. And when words fail us, when the ache in our hearts becomes too much to bear, it's like we shut down, retreating into ourselves to protect what little remains of our shattered souls.

You see, grief is messy. It's not linear, it's not predictable, and it certainly doesn't play by the rules. So if you find yourself feeling like a robot, if you can't put into words the pain that's tearing you apart from the inside out, know that it's okay.

Take each day as it comes, one tiny step at a time. Lean on the ones who love you, even when you can't find the right words to express what you're going through. And most importantly, be gentle with yourself. You're doing the best you can in the midst of unimaginable pain, and that's more than enough. Even when you don't see it yourself, you still have a beautiful light within you. I pray that even through the pain, you will encounter beautiful moments that remind you of the strength that resides within your soul.

Always close to my heart,

Angel Leigh
