As 2013 draws to a close I’m left looking back on what is surely to be the worst year of my life. It seems impossible to me now that I actually thought 2013 couldn’t possibly be as bad as 2012. That year was a nightmare as we watched Rehtaeh’s mental state progressively worsen and her life fall into a black pit of total despair. I had no idea how bad 2013 was going to be.
Looking back now the amount of grief experienced at the loss of my only child was equaled by the amount of friendships made, support given, and love expressed. I have a lot to be grateful for.
I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
