14th of June… I’ve never dreaded a date so much!
As it drew closer, I honestly didn’t know how to feel. I just kept avoiding the topic in my head but at midnight, all the feelings came pouring out! I’ve never felt as much pain as I felt on the 14th of June 2020! The type of pain that never goes away.
First I acknowledged the fact that you had truly left this earth! Next, I avoided anything that brought back that pain. I avoided seeing videos/pictures of you for months, I couldn’t bear watching or staring at them! what an irony because you’ve been my profile picture for the past year.
Social media made it horrible, to be honest! Every now and then someone will drop a comment or message saying “mama will be so proud of you, mama this or that” I’m like can you keep it to yourself?????!! You can make your point without bringing someone I’ve lost into the matter! Several times I cleared some in the dm and made them know their comment did more harm than good.
I honestly didn’t need the reminders as they only opened up fresh wounds. Several times I found myself deleting such comments ASAP! It’s very annoying that the pain remains fresh! It’s very annoying that just one sentence about you can open the waterworks all over again!
It’s been a year without you and I honestly can’t find the right words. All I know is… you’re forever loved and missed by us all! I love you so much my Mama Ibidunni! You were indeed sweet to have! 💕💕💕
