In passing

When you lose someone you love, your whole world is shattered. Nothing looks the same. People don't know what to say and the only solace can be found in moments of exhausted sleep. You're not supposed to forget them. You're not supposed to get over it or even through it.

That life you had will not come back. You will see them again one day. In the meantime, you've got this life to live. It won't be the same, but it doesn't have to be awful. If you'd passed instead of them, you wouldn't want to be looking down seeing their days filled with misery mourning the loss of you. Grieve, yes, and mourn, and don't rush the flood of feelings and memories.

But when you feel you can begin again, do so without guilt. Live for them, love for them, share every good thing they taught you with the whole world. This is a beautiful way to honor their life and have what they gave to you carry on in spirit for the rest of your days.

-Doe Zantamata


  1. so true Doe, Though its not easy but when actually we look around we feel their presence everywhere as if they are telling us that we shall meet again as nothing ends or begins with us....its an ongoing journey but as our lesson are yet to learn in this life span so we have to keep going and once we our done, we shall meet them one day....

  2. Hi Doe ! I don't know whether you actually have the time to read comments or not but I want to tell you that I highly appreciate your work. I love your picture quotes. They inspire me to be a good human being. I am going through a bad time and your quotes keep up my spirits. Thanks for inspiring people on a daily basis. You are a source of my happiness. Love you.
