Hello, and sorry for the absence. Life has completely taken over of late, and I've done something I rarely do and put my self care first ❤
I saw this meme and it made me smile, a smile of "yeah, I get that" and I bet many of you do too.
I seem to have spent a lot of time apologising through my grief. Apologising for not replying to messages, emails, calla, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, apologising for not being able to be there for others, not attending events or activities I said I would.
You know what? We don't have to. Grief is so all consuming at times, you can easily end up with no brain space left, and you don't need to apologise for what is essentially putting yourself first by not taking on too much.
I honestly never realised how exhausting grief could feel until my husband died, and I had to deal with being physically drained and exhausted, and well as emotionally done in too.
Never apologise. You matter ♥ You are important ❤ Your self care is your priority, and if it isn't, make it so ❤
