2 Years without my Brother
Well, this is it, exactly two years since my 26 years old and only brother passed away unexpectedly. I want to thank to this site an all the people who kindly shares their experiences, we are all together in this journey, just knowing that I’m not the only one suffering this bad provides a little relief. I would like to thank specially to Doreen UK, Kate and all the mommies out there that even though have gone through this terrible experience still find courage to provide advice to all the people here.
What can I said, two years ago people said “Don’t worry time will heal”, well guess what; it is not. It is true that I’m back to my normal day to day activities and I push myself to move forward every day, trying to do my best for my parents and my nephew who has become my son, he is the only relief I have, he just look identical as my brother, every time I look at him it is like I’m with my brother again when we were kids. I promised my brother that if something happened I would look after his son, of course when I said that I never imagine that it will become true, don’t know why my brother make me do that vow before he passed away, it is like he knew. Anyway I’ll keep that promise till the end of my days.
To all of you out there starting this grieving process, hang on, stand still with all your forces, I’ve been there, the pain is unbearable, I know, but also I have found out that our time here is limited and precious, allow yourself some comfort and smiles from time to time, cry all you want but keep your head up, look around at all the people that is still here and cares for you, they are also suffering, hung them, tell them you loved them. This is life, life is full with tests, it will be painful, it will be discouraging, it will test you at your very core, but remember you are not alone. Love you all.
