Day 3: Myths
“You are so brave”
Truth: I am no braver than you would be.
I am no braver than you would be. Losing my child was not my choice. I didn’t go into this knowing I could be brave and full of courage. I went in like anyone else; with hope and full of love. Hope that this story would have a happy ending, despite countless losses before.
I am no braver than you would be. The truth is, I have to keep living. I am choosing to move forward and be thankful for all that I have around me. To choose joy instead.
I am no braver than you would be. I choose joy because it’s what I would have wished for my son.
This is such a lovely project (I checked out Carly Marie’s site). I think the ability to process grief through creativity is really meaningful. I know I haven’t experienced the same kind of losses you have but your journey through healing is so inspirational. While your focus on pregnancy and infant loss is very important to so many, please know that you are a great inspiration to anyone processing grief and loss. You’re always in my thoughts, my friend!
