Day 22 Pearls of Wisdom

We’ve had lots of wisdom and advice offered since we lost Rory, sadly not all of it has been helpful or constructive. I’m going to list the bad stuff below:

  • It was probably for the best if there was something wrong.
  • It’s part of a bigger plan.
  • It was meant to happen.
  • It happened for a reason.
  • You can have another.
  • I think you should try to have another (said after Henry).
  • You are not dealing with this normally.
  • You’ll feel normal again soon.
  • You need to be grateful for what you do have.

All of the above is extremely unhelpful, what I did find helpful was an analogy about a shipwreck sent to me by a lovely friend (one of the ones who gets me and gets it generally), I can’t find the longer version but this meme sums it up.
