The 7 beliefs which anchored me in grief… without me even realising.

The seven beliefs:

1) When no other search options were open to me, when all the truths and answers to Christian’s disappearance were still hidden and when I’d finally hit the brick wall of emotional and physical exhaustion, I thought I was alone, in darkness and that the situation was hopeless. How was I ever going to find him? How was I going to live without him? In many ways, I was embarrassed that my faith and conviction in my brother had seemingly been misplaced: I was so sure he’d come out of the woodwork following my appeals and that our love for each other would mend all bridges. Apparently, not. It was hard to face people; all I wanted was for the ground to swallow me up.
