It’s hard to push forward when someone you love dies. It can be almost impossible just to take another step in your day. The weight of it all comes crashing down on your head and heart. So, why even push on? Why should we continue forward after those we loved are gone? Is there really any point? Should we keep living each day like it’s our last or just push forward hoping that the best is yet to come? These are the questions that haunt many minds. It’s something that really weighs in on our hearts. We press forward thinking that we’ve got what it takes to make it and while we do, there are some things that just seem too painful to move on from. I should know. I’ve been through many different bits and pieces of death. Losing loved ones is hard. Having to really be there for those who have had the same thing happen to them can be even harder sometimes. It’s a terrible experience, and it’s one that eventually everyone will have to go through. I wish it wasn’t the case for so many people. Unfortunately it is.
So, what are we supposed to do with it all? How are we supposed to keep going? I think it all comes down to the fact that we owe it to those who have passed. They are on the other side watching over us and they want us to do better and live our lives, always. If you’re a person who doesn’t believe in an afterlife, I feel terribly sorry for you. It’s not something that’s easy to think about, that someone dies and then they’re just gone? I can’t think like that. Not because I couldn’t handle it, but because I know there’s something more. An afterlife that we all need to believe in. I’ve felt, heard, seen, and dreamed of loved ones and that’s what really matters. I miss them and love them with all my heart, but I know that no matter what, they’re watching over us everyday, just waiting for the best parts of our lives and encouraging us all along the way. So, if you’ve lost someone you love, try to remember that they’re not really gone. Their physical form may not be here, but their soul lives on in your heart. That may sound very cheesy, but it’s the straight truth and it’s a truth we all need.
