Brent from DAILY GOODIE BOX reached out to me in January of 2017 to see if I wanted to sample a box of freebies. The answer to that question is almost always a resounding yes. I love trying new things, but it is more fun to try them when they’re free. While the box was in transit, my Dad passed away. My Dad was my best friend and my favorite confidant. He gave the best advice, and I felt lost without him. To make matters worse, my husband accepted a new job far away from my friends and family. Moving Day to the new city was the day after my Dad died. Blogging was the furthest thing from my mind so I could not bring myself to write. Some say time heals all wounds, but I do not think that’s true.
It has been almost a year since my Dad passed, and my heart is in no better shape than it was the day it happened. In fact, it feels worse. During my free fall into depression, my husband decided it was all too much for him. He threw in the towel, and everyone else felt so far away. People tried to reach out, and I will always appreciate that. My figurative voice was gone so I was unable to express anything or reach out for help. Feeling all alone in the world is a hard thing to overcome, and depression is very lonely.
