After All This Time- #MicroblogMondays

After all this time.

It's been almost 5 years since we lost him.

After all this time, I still can't become friends with someone who has a child who is the same age as he should be.

It seems silly perhaps, and it certainly makes it difficult to make new friends in a new town.

After all this time, I still can't do it.

I'm sure you are a lovely person, but you have a child who will turn 5 this summer so we can't be friends.

After all this time you would think I could look past it, but I can't.


  1. When you've been wounded so deeply, things like that don't need to make sense - as long as they ease some of weight on your heart. Thinking of you!

  2. I just met a very sweet woman whose son will be 5 in December. I immediately felt myself creating distance. It's just so hard.

  3. "Silly" is definitely NOT the word I would use to describe your feelings. I'm sure five years feels like no time at all.

  4. Here from the roundup. ((Hugs))

  5. Without really realizing it until recently, I think I distance myself from people with kids of the same age of what could have been. Helps to have an awareness about it. Thank you for sharing so I know I am not the only one who struggles with this sometimes. Thoughts your way!
