You have not upset me, losing my child has upset me. I hope that someday, you may walk down that aisle, and maybe, one day hold your own child. There is a difference in the love a mother has for her child. That in no way minimises the many ways and connections of love we have in this world.
My husband and I would have gladly laid down our lives so she could live. My parents would have happily done the same. But it is not our choice.
You have lost. I’m in no way, minimising your pain. But losing a child is a different pain. Her future, is gone. Her promise, unfulfilled. We will all of us suffer loss, that’s the cost of living. But this particular loss, is heavier.
take care of yourself as well.
