It's a terrible thing, I am sorry it happened that way. Some very thoughtful replies, I agree with all of the points except for "Everything happens
for a reason". This is highly debateable, and I do not accept this assumption, for myself. Bad things happen to good people, in droves, there are
regional disasters and it's hard to find meaning in a tsunami or holocaust. And this is akin to a personal tsunami for you. Searching for meaning in a
disaster is a dangerous and unyielding mental exercise.
This is a serious topic for me too, as I have been in a period of extended mourning and depression - I am just rising out of now, after 18 months.
Sometimes hearing of others loss reduces alienation, so I will summarize. 18 months ago, my '2nd mom' from childhood,as we called her was shot to
death with her fiance, the day before their wedding. Then my 2nd dad, the shooter, killed himself in prison, within a month of my grandfather passing.
After suffering several digestive orders, financial ruin and depression, my girlfriend left me for a mutual friend she swore no interest in, and has
denied me visitation rights to visit her children I helped raise for nearly 5 years.
Luck comes in bursts; both good and bad. For me, I am left with one clear burning question - what is my purpose, for the rest of my time? I have
finally started to obtain clues to my true potential and direction. I wish you the best of luck in finding yours, with a loving Brother and Sister
watching over each shoulder. Peace & Love
