May is an interesting month for me. May consist of Mother’s Day, my mother’s birthday, and around the time she got sick that led to her death.
Over the years since her death, I’ve gone through multiple emotions with this month. Sadness because I missed her. Anger because she left me. Envy for those that still had their living mother.
The last couple years, I’ve been at a place of solace. I’ve accepted her death as it was selfish of me to want her here when she was physically suffering. I’ve found peace with accepting that she is at peace now.
People have asked me in different ways how I’ve dealt with losing my parents. It’s a process but you just learn to love and appreciate them in a different way.
