A new beginning

After wallowing in grief for days, she finally opened her eyes to the mess- a half-finished bottle of whiskey sitting idly beside the dusty overflowing ashtray in the living room. The couple picture collage mounted on the wall was grazed and torn with fingernails. Kitchen sink loaded with dirty dishes, refrigerator stinking of mouldy vegetables and sour milk. Lying there amid the crumpled sheets, tear-stained pillows and stale crumbs of pizza strewn all over, she decided itโ€™s time to let go and start afresh.

  2. Oh, I can relate to this…minus the overflowing ashtray. Wallowing does have some purpose, it can teach us to get up off our butts and begin again. Thanks for sharing your story. Well done.

    1. Thanks, Patricia. Grieving does have a purpose. It helps us accept the loss and to move on in life Internalising pain can have negative effects.
