You are a different person and forever will be, you have formed new friendships, faced reality in a deeper sense than most of the people around you, you look at EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY differently.
Picking up the pieces, what pieces, you have a new foundation to build, you are not the same person. It is a rebirth of some fashion, a new outlook, a new perspective, a new chance with yourself, your relationships and how you want to live your very PRECIOUS life.
It takes time, compassion, and understanding from yourself first, and then the people around you. Be gentle and kind and unravel the old and welcome the new part of you that has faced the hardest battle of your life.
Be proud, reach out, connect, celebrate who you are every minute and every day because we truly know how precious life is and will now forever moving forward.
There is no plan, just breathe and trust.
