Near the end of my day at work, I found out that someone dear to me…passed on. VERY dear.
It really affected me a lot. So much that it probably took a lot of strength not to show it at work.
I couldn’t let anyone else know that time I was, deep inside, mourning. Now I know how one of my officemates felt that time when something similar happened to him/her.
What made it personally worse is that I never even knew. As in no one told me until I got a message about it.
In a way, I got angry with “her” because she never let me on. OTOH, she did tell me before that she was diagnosed with leukemia.
In any case, what’s happened happened. I left work soon after the clock ticked 6, then…did my thing.
Eventually, I said a short prayer for her. Rest in peace, and…thanks for the memories.
