Today I’m switching it up a little and doing the prompt from The One-Minute Writer:
Describe grief you have felt in your life: What or who you have lost, what has that felt like, how has that emotion impacted your life?
I’m not sure I do grief, to be perfectly honest. Maybe it sounds inhuman, or at the very least unfeeling, but I feel little in terms of loss; and there have been losses to speak of, but I have never grieved per se. This is why I say that I do not grieve. People die, and life moves on. That is an indisputable truth, and if there is one thing I have always been good at it is moving on with my life. But what if I lost someone really close to me? Would I grieve? Maybe. Would it eat me up? Probably. But I really would prefer if I didn’t have to face that situation any time in the near future, and preferably not at all.
Because if there’s one thing I do not do well, it’s being alone. That, to me, is where I find grief.
