When I Thought I Was Being Strong… I Really Wasn’t

I didn’t know what to expect coming into this weekend so I feared even being here. I recently have survived the death of my significant other and the journey has made me realize that throughout that experience of death when I thought I was being strong… I really wasn’t. All I did was set myself up for more failure. The Journey has taught me that by shoving your feelings or emotions down that it will only hurt me worse instead of just letting them go and not having physical problems like pain and anxiety.
