Except For Me…

Everyone around me has been shedding tears of sorrow and despair. My mother has been crying non stop for my cousin who was like a daughter to her. My sister has locked her bedroom door, afraid to show her sadness. And here I am, no tears and no hint of grief.

I am saddened and shocked to hear the horrific news. And I wanted to cry (I do, so badly), but  nothing would come out. I wanted to shout, but I have no strength or energy left. I heard the news and something tells me it’s real, but inside it seems like everything was just a fabrication. Like some sort of bad bluff!

Maybe, I am in self-denial…

    nell, being in denial is as much a coping mechanism as is crying. so maybe that’s the way your mind chooses to deal with this – but it doesn’t mean that you don’t care, because obviously you do. i’ll include your cousin in my prayers, and i’ll be praying for you and your family too.

    thanks so much, meeya. i hope this self denial would eventually pass, cause i’d rather cry than feel this way. i know the truth is right in front of me, but i haven’t fully immersed myself in these facts. i really really really need a good cry, cause inside i feel like exploding! thanks so much for that good hug 🙂

    There are many ways that people grieve bro and yours doesn’t mean that you don’t care for her. You’ve been praying for her and that’s the best you can do for her. Take care , God Bless and we are praying for you and your family too.
