That is what they say tell her.
She must not be grateful for what she has.
How would they even know?
Of course she is grateful.
For her daughter.
For her friends and family.
For her means.
For her health.
How dare they imply she isn’t grateful for that.
Can’t she just miss her husband?
She loves her friends, but they can’t fill the void he leaves.
She loves her daughter.
Her daughter is young.
It’s not fair to expect her to take the place of her father.
People tell her to be grateful.
Do people even know what they are saying?
Do they not understand what she has been through?
Be grateful for what?
The loss of her dreams?
The lost plans?
The loss of security?
The loss of faith?
People think they are helping, but they don’t know.
Why can’t she just feel what she feels?
Why can’t she just be sad?
