They tell you he’s in a better place. That everything happens for a reason. That good will prevail. That time heals all wounds. Frankly, you’ve been having a little trouble buying it. The crushing nature of what you’ve gone through feels a little like soul murder. How to really heal a broken heart?
This is when you need to close your eyes and repeat after me: It’s going to be okay.
Simple, in nature—nothing too profound. But that’s the beauty of it all: your healing doesn’t have to be. You just need to know that it’s going to be okay. You need to believe it with all your might, and you need to rely on it, and depend on it, and be soothed by it.
It’s going to be okay.
