Live Your Own Journey


One of the most important things I learned was to live my own journey.


In my early days, I was a member of Widowed & Young, and reading the stories of others further down the line was hugely comforting.


I started to be aware of those at the same stage as me and compare my journey to theirs.


I'd worry if I didn't feel as together as those who seemed to be coping better, or I compared myself to those who were struggling, and wonder if I was in denial because I seemed to be coping. In honesty, I couldn't win.


There. Is. No. Right. Answer.


Whatever you think, it's okay. It's your journey.

Whatever you feel, it's okay. It's your journey.

Whatever you do, it's okay. It's your journey.

Whatever you say, it's okay. It's your journey.


Your. Journey.


Our journeys and how we travel them are so deeply personal, and they cannot, but most importantly, shouldn't be compared to the path of others.


Be brave and unashamedly you x
