Absent any details, I must assume you’re talking about the death of a loved one, a close friend or family member, something very sudden and catastrophic. That’s tough, but think of it this way…it could be worse. At the very least, you still have the positive memories of that person when he/she was alive, and that’s something you’ll always carry around with you.
It’s much tougher, in my opinion, to deal with a sudden disconnect (i.e. falling out) with a close friend, someone who fits you perfectly and you’re closer to than anyone else you’ve ever met – and then it all falls apart, over a stupid misunderstanding, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it, you can’t even blame anyone else for it because you know it’s all your fault.
Even a decade later, just as I think I’m over the whole situation, it all comes flooding back, and I’m back to square zero. Sometimes it gets to the point where I wish this person had died instead…at least, that would be something. Recently I’ve had other friends & family members die suddenly, and you know what? That type of pain ain’t nothin’. It sucks, but not nearly as much.
Will you ever go back to where your life was? Nope, not a chance. But that’s how life works…it’s ever-changing, and even if you end up a bit damaged, it’s something you eventually learn to live with, gain a new perspective on. It won’t happen overnight, and maybe it won’t ever happen. But think of it this way…eventually, you’ll die like everyone else, and then you won’t have to worry about a damn thing. Eventually, we will all be at peace forever.
