One of the common sayings that has bothered me in the past is this sentiment of, “Just hold on. Better days are coming.”
The thing is, you can’t know that for certain. Nobody can.
For some people, better days don’t follow, and it’s important to acknowledge that.
I still hold hope, though. And how much more powerful is hope when it’s fully informed?
Notes for the Bereaved:
I’m not going to tell you it gets better.
The truth is, for some people, it doesn’t.
What I will tell you is that it can get better. There is potential for happier days. There is hope.
I hold hope for you.
