The absolute biggest loss in my life thus far has been losing my friend to cancer. I have been trying to cope with it for months now and I can’t. I had no idea she had cancer and she hid it from the world for obvious reasons but I think to myself everyday that I should’ve known, I should’ve been there... I should’ve reached out more. I lost her and the pain never goes away. As I continue to live, I also have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer and my focus is to make sure she knows I love and cherish her. Cancer is hard enough. I might never learn to cope with my loss but maybe I’m being tested with other experiences. Anyone have coping mechanisms? I’d appreciate it.
