You have to allow yourself to feel. All of the emotions that bubble up inside you, you have to allow yourself to feel them. Cry, scream, laugh. Let it all out. It’s the only way to move on. You have to purge yourself of the pain in order to move on. Grief is a healthy reaction to pain in your life and you cannot skip over it. I know it seems like it is easier to repress if all and fain happiness in the hopes that one day it will be real, but it doesn’t work that way. Emotions don’t disappear. If you don’t feel them, if you don’t let them out they stay inside of you and they weigh you down. You don’t need that in your life. There is no bridge. The only way to the other side is through the river.
