This holiday has been tough. - January 4th 2014, 01:16 AM

This holiday season... Where do I start... It wasn't necessarily hard on me to say but the news was hard. We'll start with what I found out about first.

One of my best friend's mother was battling brain cancer, she passed away on New Years Eve. Then just yesterday my friend was headed back home with her little brother and one of my old boss' from my hometown hit her head on, she would have been killed if she were going any faster. Thank god she made it out safe with only a fractured arm and leg. Her legs were pinned under the dash. She went into surgery the next day. She has a daughter too but I don't know if her daughter was in the car with them. I don't believe she was able to make it to her mother's service today because of it.

Now what I've found out today.

One of my friends from high school died on Christmas. We were friends for a short time but had a falling out, she was a sweet girl nonetheless. Apparently she was driving to see her mother she hadn't seen in five years and the car she was in hit a stop light pole and she was ejected from the vehicle. At first I didn't believe it but then I started looking around and it's true... She was just 19 years old and had just gotten married a year ago this month... I don't even know why I'm so upset about this but I am. It's tragic...

I also had an ER visit recently and found out that I may have issues conceiving when I'm ready because of a possible blocked Fallopian tube.

It's hard to believe that my friend's parents are dying and that people I knew and was even friends with in high school are dying. They are investigating if drugs were involved in my old high school friends death; I used to smoke with her so I'm afraid of what they'll find. It doesn't help that I'm pretty sick right now either, I feel my emotions might be a bit compromised.

Hi, there.

I'm really sorry to hear about how the last few weeks have been for you. Losing someone (no matter if you talked to them years ago or the day of their passing) is a hard thing to deal with. I can't imagine the emotional toll these passings have taken on you, but I do want to let you know that I am here for you if need be.

Try to stay positive and continue pushing on. If things become to hard on you (i.e., they're effecting majority of your daily operations), I urge you to search for some outside assistance like a counselor, social worker, etc. They will be able to provide you with some guidance, support, and tips to get through this rough patch of negative feelings and emotions you've been experiencing lately.

Keep your head up, my friend.


Best wishes,
Chris


Chris
I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Like Chris said, it's hard losing someone no matter the amount of time you knew them, or what happen in the past between you. It still stings.

Some people look at old memories, and try to deal with it all that way, some people write down what they couldn't say to them that they would of, but try to be positive with all this stuff going on.

It's hard, but it won't always be like this.
I hope you'll get through this, I know you will. Give it time.
It's okay to me upset and emotional.
