Weary & Burdened Ep. 025: Some Things Must End for Others to Begin


Writing to and about David in a repetitive way was cathartic. I never thought about why I did such a thing. Journaling had always come natural to me; I’d been doing it since I was 7 or 8 years old.

I’ve journaled, written and re-written the same story countless times in the last 5 years. It’s always felt good. I enjoyed sharing my original blog with people as a form of communicating. A way to reach out and share what was going on for me. I continue to share my story of David both verbally and in writing since his passing.

I’ve learned there’s power in storytelling for the teller and the listener. Stories are the venue through which we pass along our history. How we teach and learn. How we connect. How we find insight and discover new perspectives, and thankfully, how we heal.
