Certain sorrows never fade.

“And no matter what anybody says about grief and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.”
— Tiffanie DeBartolo

  5. I just lost my brother suddenly and the pain I feel is so deep I will never get over it. I will miss him everyday.

    1. Dear Kim, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain your are feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with with you. Sending you a gentle hug. Brigitte

  6. A few years back, I found out my little sister had cancer. I found out, my best friend had ALS. I watched them both wither away,and die. Shortly after they were gone, I held another dear friend in my arms as he was dying. 9 months later my father died, and my mother followed shortly afterwards. I am drained. It was too much…too many,together. I feel so alone I smile for others, cry still inside.

  7. I agree. From personal experience I have more than one unfogettable sorrow in my life. However, I do everything possible not to revive them. When they are “up” I feel really bad, it is like being imprisoned in one’ s self.

  8. Perhaps these “potentially” live sorrows sometimes would add a”humanitarian” touch to us. They increase our sensitivity to others‘pains. Retieving these sour moments also help washing our “emotional impurities”.

  9. We all have to carry sorrow. At first it weighs heavy and drags us down, then as the years pass it weighs less. Finaly it becomes a part of us and we can rely on it to be a constant companion, and there will be no more loneliness.

  10. Almost 7 years after losing the true love of my life, the pain remains. I agree; grief is a constant companion.?

  11. Lost my son over 4 1/2 years ago. The loss will always bE a part of me. The pain remains in my heart and I tear up often over things I don’t expect. Fortunately, God granted me the strength to make it through and peace beyond understanding. The pain becomes a part of who you are, but allows you to be there for other’s who face similar circumstances. God bless all of you!

  15. Unfortunately sorrows are part of our life. But many times they help us to realize how important many things taken for granted can be. During the latest years, enduring all my sufferance, I’ve become different, more sensitive… and now also when I am alone, in front of a blue sea, I feel lucky and I appreciate even the air that I breath. A huge hug to all of you. God bless you.
