There are days and then there are DAYS…we all have them.
For those of us who don’t have that other voice to reach out to any more, when we have those “days” it’s more of a challenge to come up with a solution sometimes. In days, B-C, I would reach for the phone and call, waiting to hear that big voice answer and I would share. Sometimes that sharing would really mean venting but that was OK too…I always tried to have an ear open when the reverse was needed.
Now, there are new voices that I can reach out to and still get good advice or at least a steady shoulder to lean on when I need it, but it’s not ‘that’ shoulder and it’s not the same.
Each time something like this comes up, it only serves to remind me that I’m on my own to make those choices now.
But that doesn’t stop me from wishing and from listening, hoping to hear the voice that cancer silenced.
So, when you need ‘your’ voice, the one that centered your thoughts, just listen. Simply stop and just listen.
