I’ll never forget when I spoke those same words to one of my customers, in the early months after my son died.
“It’s okay,” I’d say to people, who would usually say some variation of, “Yes, it’s going to be okay,” or “I know.”

And I’ve tried to remember that ever since.
Sometimes life sucks. And when it does, it’s not okay.
As such, I’m resurrecting this post from a year ago.
