"Don't say it's not really so bad. Because it is. Death is awful, demonic."
Why would we even try to tolerate inanity?
"There are just some things I realize are never going to work again. Relationships we sensed were toxic before Child-Loss but simply tolerated as best we could, now cannot be tolerated at all."
We don't 'do' toxicity!
There is no room in our macerated hearts for "the Jerry Springers" (the trouble-makers) of the world. If they want to do toxicity, they had best take it elsewhere.
These are the after-effects of what comes from having your entire being assaulted by the trauma of losing your child. As the graphic above states, "There is nothing wrong with (me. I) am simply heart tending."
My heart tending must become more important than anyone's neurotic or mean-spirited toxicity, and I owe them no explanation.
