The things I’ve learned from my grandmother’s passing:
1) No matter who you are or what you do, there’s going to come a moment in your life where it all comes falling down and you think to yourself: “Life can really be unfair.”
2) Dying is scary. But seeing someone you love die is so much scarier.
3) Family is very important.
4) Once you let go of your loved one, there’s no way of getting them back. And that is the hardest thing to come to terms with.
5) Crying is the best sadness reliever.
6) Alcohol can ease the pain, but it can’t make you forget.
7) Clever thinking is gathering everyone around and ordering the most junk food-ish, disgustingly delicious take out. A full stomach is better than an empty one. Especially in rough times.
8) Time is worth more than a million diamonds.
9) You can’t regret the words you DID say.
10) Carpe Diem. Because before you know it, a life comes to an end.
