You know, there are times when you’re honest.
You lay it on the line
You bare your soul- heart fully on its sleeve.
I wrote a guest post for Britmums here
You have no idea how painful it was to write it.
People say we’re trying to break the taboo. For us all to talk about it- for those grieving to be able to share.
Check the Twitter feed. See those trying to help.
Despite all of that- do you know after that post this week 1 person commented.
1 solitary person.
I wasn’t expecting a floodgate.
I understand that lots don’t know what to say.
Franglaise Mummy commented. She has no idea just how much that meant.
Tomorrow it’s 7 years since Natalie went to heaven. The timing of the Britmum’s post was strangely timely- despite them not knowing how much.
I’ll think twice next time.
I just might retreat back into my shell.
I’m not intending to moan- guess its just a reminder that opaqueness is less painful.
Maybe I just need to grow a thicker skin.
