Today is my father's birthday. He would have been 57. I lost him in May of last year very suddenly. His birthday in June last year - I spent with my mom. We grieved together. This year, I am not with my mom. As a family of a tight knit 3 of us (I don't have siblings), I feel a deep emptiness without him, even though life is going on. People have been messaging remembering him on his birthday today while some people have completely ignored the day, and wished and celebrated others that they do know. I don't hold anything against anyone, it's just that today has been another deep reminder of him not being with me, not being with us. My emotions feel a little more scattered than usual. I've attached a picture of my mom and dad to this post. Some days it's hard to find inner peace as there is so much more longing instead.
