6 Months of Grief Project: Day 84

This is Day 84 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

I am my own protector. My giant bear of a husband is gone. He cannot protect me from this deep grief. He cannot make me feel safe anymore. I must fight on my own. I have been abandoned and there is no one who can replace that feeling of being loved and cared for. I have to know in my bones that I am worth fighting for. I have to love myself and I don't know if I can.

I am very aware that this project can bring up a lot around yours or other's grief and loss, I will always follow every post with some online grief support resources that have helped me. Please feel free to let me know of online support that you have found healing in your grief, as well:

And remember, I am sharing this project on a variety of platforms, including my Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook feeds, as well as my Pinterest page on Grief. I use the hashtag #6MonthsOfGrief, so it can easily be found on any platform. Please share this project with anyone you think might need it.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow.
