“People imagine that losing a loved one works kind of like missing cigarettes. The first day is really hard and the next day is less hard and so forth, easier and easier the longer you go on. But instead it’s like missing water. Every day, you notice the person’s absence more.”
Anne Tyler, Back When We Were Grownups
This is very true in the grieving process. The good news is, it is not a permanent or fatal condition. Miracle of miracles, your thirst will be quenched.
