My name is Emma. I’m 19 years old. I love drawing, dogs, and video games. I’m kinda bad with talking, normally I tend to either bottle things up without knowing how to let it out, or I immediately dump a bunch of emotional baggage on people which in return makes me very scared to talk in fear that I’ll drive my friends away with my emotional dumps.
About my Loss:
I lost my dad at the age of 10. It was extremely unexpected and traumatic, especially since I walked in to find him unalive. My Omi (his mum) was the one who was with me when this happened. She was my rock for next 8 years until she randomly got pneumonia and died 3 months later. I don’t know what to do anymore. I’ve lost two of the most important people in my life and I just don’t know where to turn to.

As all of you have stated, I too fake my happiness. I laugh on the outside and am crying for him on the inside. I ache so bad that my Julian is not in my life. I just don't understand why God won't take me. Until he does, I…"
"Morgan. I wish I had answers but I am in the very same place. Lost, fake and hollow. I feel worse than I did a year ago I think because I thought I would feel better and don't. Empty and apathetic. I'm tired all the…"
I don't know why this has happened to us, our soulmates being torn from us, but it fucking sucks. Have you considered not acting happy and normal, since that isn't how you feel? Especially if acting that way isn't helping…"

"Hi Danny. Surviving is art which we all need to practice. Today I met a friend whose father is witnessing the similar illness as my mother i.e. late stage cancer. He is also going through the same emotional turmoil as I went in 2018. After this…"
