I am so very glad you are (asking for help when you need it) because I know you are a person who dives deep and I don’t want you to be alone in your sadness ever, if it is not the best thing for you. I know sometimes it is the best thing (to be alone) but I completely agree that grief about the loss of a close loved one needs to be shared in some part, at least. Because it is so heavy and also because it really is the kind of sadness that has a communal aspect to it. Thank you for responding to my essay and for sharing your own. I appreciate it. ❤
