This is my first post in what felt like ages. You must have been very worried as to where I have been. Well, what happened was my mother passed away peacefully after a long battle with lung cancer. Prior to that, she was in and out of the hospital. Thus, I didn't have the physical or emotional energy to write posts consistently. Eventually, I stopped writing altogether. I have since withdrawn myself from all Steemian communities while I took my time to grieve.
Truthfully, grief never really goes away. It comes in waves. Sometimes it is a thought, a song , a taste or even a smell. Something that reminds me of the only person I have truly loved in this life. Then, realising that she is gone. It is a gaping hole in my chest that I feel will never truly be full.
I have been trying to think of what to write. However, I have since decided that my personal life is my privacy and those who know me on other social media platforms have read my tributes and eulogies. I feel that posting such a thing on this platform wouldn't do my mother any justice. I hope that is understandable.
Overall, my future postings will be lesser but I will do my best to write when I can. Till then!
