Another young man died in close family circle. As sudden and shocking as my brother. Left me quite shaken and unsettled. The thought that some people's lives change altogether for their entire life with something that happens in a second is somewhat unnerving to me.
An entire family loses direction and feels a loss of purpose for a long time when a young life departs. A couple lost their eldest son, siblings lost their eldest brother and a woman lost her very recently married husband. Life seems cruel at such instances, leaves me with a lot of questions.
I've seen and been through a lot in the past 2 years and the best lesson I've learnt is to keep your grief to yourself. It hurts when someone belittles your feelings in an attempt to console you. Not everybody understands what is it that you've lost and why can't it be filled with anything/anyone else. After a lot of depression, rage and helplessness, I felt one thing - not everybody can share your grief. And then you go numb. Just numb.
