'Anticipatory Grief' by Michael Bussell at Vent Space, Baltimore
That discomfort you’re feeling is grief.
You reneged on a contract you entered into with me after specifying you would not. And you were disrespectful to me even in telling me you were reneging.
You abuse inmates. You abuse vulnerable people you’re paid to protect.
I don’t have to do anything for you. I never even asked for a deposit over a single dollar. You only did so to bully me into a better deal for you. You’re an idiot. You probably have no real friends and torture everyone in your life, too. I can “block you on everything” but you “still know where I’m at”? Pull up then, big man. You want to talk about karma? Karma bets
you get the full 90 years you’re charged with. Mr. H*****ay. 3* S Cul*** Street 21**9.
What do you say to someone who’s read all this and is still feeling overwhelmed with grief?
Keep trying. There is something powerful about naming this as grief. It helps us feel what’s inside of us. So many have told me in the past week, “I’m telling my coworkers I’m having a hard time,” or “I cried last night.” When you name it, you feel it and it moves through you.
