I get up and I carry on even on the days when I really don’t want to. I’m such an anxious person and I have so much self doubt but one thing I have learnt, over the last 16 months especially is that I am brave. I am strong even though I feel much, much less than those things every single day. Those voices in your head that tell you you’re not strong, the ones that tell you that you’re not good enough or you’re not doing enough …. Ignore them! Because coping with grief is the hardest thing to go through. I lost my first daughter in 2013 (she was born sleeping) I lost my husband and my Nan in 2021. And even though every single day I feel like I’m failing, I’m not … I’m here and I keep showing up, I keep going. My children are my reason for being and they always have been … but it doesn’t matter what yours is. Whatever it is that makes you get out of bed on a morning despite all the adversity, hold on to it. Focus on it and keep going. You’ve got this ❤️
