Survivor’s guilt is a lot like compost. It stinks, it’s ugly, and you don’t want to look at it. Most importantly, it’s going to change you.
The thing about composting is that it takes time and air, and just like learning to live again after loss, it works best when it isn’t allowed to settle for too long. The rotting remnants of past beauty can be beautiful again.
Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
