A few days ago I started a new post in the family thread concerning a real issue in my family life at the moment. It wasn't a pleasant topic, something I hope none of you have to go through in this life. But it was real. Not vulger, or inappropiate just unpleasant. The powers that be here at Large Friends, found it necessary to erase the unpleasant topic. Now I'm living it so you know I wish it was that easy. The premise of this form I thought, was to make friends with people of all walks of life who share some commonality (in our case body size). Well when I consider someone a friend I share parts of my life with them. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I'm just curious Who in the Large Friend network decides what Real Life events are not to be shared amongst consenting adults?
I did see your earlier post, and I am too sad that the censors made it go away. While it is a tough and touchy subject, it is also one that can help provide comfort to others going through similar situations.
My thoughts are with you and your son ZBig. I have also lost someone close to me in this way, and it's truly tough to deal with due to all the unanswered questions. There's not anything you go do to make it better, or easier, other than just being there for your son as you have done.
I did receive the below from a friend during my loss. It is one of my favorites and I thought I would pass along... Best wishes ZBig and hang in there.
THERE IS A NEW STAR SHINING IN THE SKY TONIGHT ...
There is an old belief that the stars shining in the night sky are the spirits of those who have died. They have shed their earthly bodies and exchanged them for bodies made of light; thousands upon thousands of our dear departed friends all promoted to glory in the night sky. There is another saying that the brightest flame burns the shortest.
My friend, you were the brightest star in my own universe. We were together for such a short time, but the stars will burn forever. Through my tears I look upwards to see if you are watching me and what do I see?
Thank you all again and again for your support. He had dinner with the mother this past weekend which our Therapist agreed with. The mother wanted him to stay the night but I felt it inappropiate. I really feel for her since most of her family is in Mexico.
that is what i'm talking about....how can posts that have NO meaning and are there to get a bad reaction stay up, and ones that are heartfelt and are up for support be taken down? That makes no sense IMO.
