Wordless Wednesday ~ Grief!

Grief 

It is necessary to grieve the life we once had to move on to the life we have now ~ Justine

“God, but life is loneliness, despite all the opiates, despite the shrill tinsel gaiety of "parties" with no purpose, despite the false grinning faces we all wear. And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter - they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship - but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.”  ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

    1. I know, I have to read it a few times and just sit and think, I am not sure if it makes me feel depressed or intent on making things better but also quite poignant for me right now too x Did it make you think?
