  • "Grief does not change you. It reveals you." --- John Green, "The Fault in our Stars"

    I am just realizing this statement is true. The world hasn't ended like I expected, it has reshaped itself. Things have continued to move and I had to run and keep up unto my equilibrium came back. It has finally started to come back and my balance is returning to normal. The world seems better ever day and there is a glimpse of happiness again. The smiles have started to return and I can breathe most days without those thoughts creeping in as much that bring the sadness.

    Like this statement the true and original me is revealing itself. I am not the same and I feel that it is a better version of me. Showing the scars of what happened in a new way of wisdom and understanding. Knowledge and recovery are wonders for creating more insight on the world. I am trying to hide less on the fringe and enter the world fully and reveal my true self. The new version of myself has completed a metamorphosis from the wounds that were caused to it. Life does seem sweeter after a tragedy, once the veil of that tragedy has started to fade away.
