    Wow, Vix. You’re so courageous and honest for writing this, especially so soon after your dad passing away. Your strength and mental capacity to persevere is nothing short of awe inspiring. I’m sure you’ll help so many others going through something similar. Sending you all the love in the world! Xx

    God Vix this was so beautifully written. Really really sorry to hear about your dad. Honestly can’t imagine how you must be feeling but I can imagine writing this has had such a cathartic effect. I love how open and honest you are and I know this post will resonate with so many people. Lots of love xxx

    This post put a lump in my throat, and a reminder to tell the ones I love that I love them. I can’t imagine your pain, and hope I have some time before I have to feel it for myself. You’ve done this before and come out the other side, you can do this again. I’m so sorry for your loss. ❤️

    This is so beautifully written, and I’m so sorry you had to write it. I think what you say at the end about pushing you forward is the thing that keeps you going, it’s taking the chances they would have loved to see you take and the opportunities they would have loved to have themselves. Hope you’re surrounded with love and care right now.

    I’m in awe that you were able to publish this so soon. My dad passed away last July, and I kept on nodding through out this entire post. It feels oddly validating to read these honest thoughts and feelings on death and grief from someone I don’t know. I read that there’s a holiday planned in the near future, please go on that holiday, I did, and it was great to not operate for a little bit. Again, I’m so sorry for your loss. xx

    I could really identify myself with this post. You really put my thoughts and feelings into words. My dad passed away 6 years ago and it was hard at times to explain what you are really feeling. I feel so touched by your story. You put everything so beautifully into words and most of your questions and thoughts were mine as well during those emotional times. Lots of love <3

    This is such a beautiful post, I’m so sorry you had cause to write it. I know so well that feeling of guilt for getting on with life, even though you know your person wouldn’t begrudge you a distraction or something you enjoy.
    I hope you’re ok, thinking of you x

    Such a moving post, Vix. I am glad you can pour the words out, which hopefully helps you in such a devastating situation. Sending all my love and strength to you and your sister x

    My heart goes out to you and I am sending you nothing but love.
    My grandad, the man who raised me, passed away in October and my heart is still completely shattered. There are no words that I can say that would ever comfort you at this time, and I wish I could say that it will get easier, but I am yet to find that myself.
    Just know that my thoughts are with you.

    I’ve just come across your insta & blog Vix. What lovely words. I lost my favourite person in the world a few years ago. Some days I was fine, some days I wasn’t. I still feel the same all this time later. They say grief comes in waves & I truly believe that. Thinking of you & your sister darl. Jerry (from school) X X

    Wow, this is such an emotional piece of writing that has summed up death in a way I never thought it could be. I lost of a few close family members in a very short space of time, and found it very hard to put into words how I felt but every single word you wrote is completely true. You are incredible to be able to express emotion in this kind of way which everybody can relate to. Your doing so well, sending you all my love

    Wow what do you say in response to that! Sending you all my love at what’s got to be the hardest time in your life. As you said it helped after your mum’s death, I hope this post also helped even a tiny bit with starting to come to terms with your Dad’s. You’re right, it will be something we all have to survive through at some point, but that also doesn’t make it any easier at all. Thinking of you a lot lovely, Alice xxxx

    This really couldn’t be more accurate – or beautifully written. I’m so sorry that you have been through this twice – your sister three times – as losing someone really is one of the hardest things in life. Watching those close to us suffer is even worse than our own personal grief and that’s what makes it the hardest I think. The only thing we can do is stay strong for those who are still here <3 Sending lots of love to you and your family xxx

    My Dad died in 2006 when I was 32. It’s a big deal to lose your parents young and I am so sorry for your loss. It took me 18 months to feel like me again after Dad died and I still miss him everyday. I hope you are surrounded by good people that are looking after you and remembering that you still grieve though the funeral has passed. I wish you well x
