    Thank you, this post was so needed. I lost my grandmother earlier this year and still have moments where I feel lost without her and have nobody to talk to since she was the one I was closest to. I’ve now started talking to a counsellor at university as I worry it may affect my final-year studies and it’s helped relieve so much pain off my chest.

    I hope you are well at this time. <3

    • My deepest condolences on the loss of your grandmother. Those moments of loneliness are normal because there is a void that your grandmother used to fill. It’s important that you know, it is okay to feel that way. I’m glad that you are talking to a counsellor because grief is a very lonely experience, and it often feels like there is no one to turn to. Your grandmother would want you to do the best in your final year, so it’s good that you are having counselling to learn how to manage your pain.

      Thank you and I wish you all the best in your heeling and your studies. If you ever want to talk, don’t hesitate to email me anytime.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. Yesterday was another reminder of how much of an impact she had one me. God is great and I will continue to make her proud and leave a legacy. I’m glad that I can inspire you too, as I think your journey has been remarkable so far.
