Lucy, who was about 14, had fallen into our pool and died. I was crushed for she had always been the thing in the world I leaned on for support.
She has always been there for me and now I don't know if I can live without her .
I was immediately impacted. I felt alone in the world with no one to comfort me because Lucy was everything to me and now she's gone. I was lost in darkness without her.
I don't know how I can live through this
It took me about a week, but I soon realized that Lucy would not have wanted me to cry. Instead, she would have wanted me to carry on and find happiness without her. I then saw the light in the darkness and it reminded me of all the important lessons Lucy taught me.
I need to become more independent. Thats what Lucy would have wanted
That's the moment I broke the bonds of depression, and took my first step to becoming a new and independent person because that's what Lucy would have wanted. Sometimes I feel she is still there guiding me and serving as my motivation to keep going.
