Getting agitated 😣 as 21st Apr arrives

Two years gone by....I thought I had got all the emotions out the way. All the sadness I thought had gone. But in the last day or so I have started to get more stressed, no idea why. It’s 2am and here I am writing this post, pretty sad and ridiculous. Stupid me.

When one loses an important part of their life there is always going to be a portion of grief attached to it. Don't beat yourself up for feeling what you're feeling. Grief is a part of healing and healing doesn't mean forgetting. Hang onto the happy memories you have for Prince and his music. Try to focus on those memories to help you through these next few days. I'm feeing the loss as the day nears but it's not as bad as last year and nowhere near as bad as the actual day that he passed. Be strong. There are others who understand what you're going through.

And Record Store Day! Unfortunately without something special from Prince, but there's still plenty of good music to enjoy. I know I will.

2 years ago I was reading about the odd appearance at PP... where he had said to wait a few days before wasting prayers on him and something about not being able to play his new guitar... I was also reading of a woman who was killed near where I live...and I would find out later someone I know was friends with her...


If I go back to 2 years ago on Sat (the 14) I got into it with someone who said something like "did you hear about Prince getting taken to the ER...?" and when I asked for any details they were rude and said, "go look it up yourself..."


and then a few days before... the day he canceled the shows... I had a dark feeling that he was in danger...I even mentioned it here in a topic about how rare it was that he canceled a show...


so I am trying to think about it much...

"Music is the gift, love each other is his request. In present tense!
Everyone experiences grief differently. Respect your process

You are the life force moving through you. All life shares it.
Prince power of creation, joyful life of revelation lives on in you.
Focus on what you feel, feel him and act on it. Then he is the universe, energy for good...

What part of Prince attracts your energy...I love the hippy earth lover part of him. I guarantee that if you act on and put out love in the name of love for Prince, you will see positive upliftment in your life and will have his love with you always. The cure for grief is to love more. You feel so much love for him it has to be shared and put toward Someone or something.

I just want your extra time and you kiss (love)
It doesn't have to cost money. I plant trees and pick up trash when I walk. When I found out Prince thought of all of us as the NPG and that he wanted to start a movement for good...

"Everybody can do something"
Amen

You're not alone....

Prince was a phenomenon like few others.

I re-read the things I wrote at the time of his death.

Remembering the good things sometimes helps...

Purple hug to all fans this week.

April will never be the same.

That's up to you on how to act versus react to a date on a calendar. You can choose to ignore 57 years of his life and almost that long of a career, music, movies, concerts, and more. Or you can concentrate on one day, demeaning the other parts of his being and focus on his death. As Prince said, "You can simply choose not to choose".

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

That’s a bit hard to do as I am in the middle of catalogiing hundreds of his CDs and performances, everyday I am in awe of his legacy.

Beating yourself up over a normal response is not going to help. Hopefully you know from many of the other posts that you aren't alone. The good side of it is that any extra grief the anniversary has stirred up will tend to go away not long after the anniversary, especially when it's not the first one. I'm so glad we have so many treasures he has left us to get us through our hard times and to also celebrate the good ones. Peace be with you.

He was an important part of my life. I’m not ashamed to miss him. Two years on, it still breaks my heart to think that a man who brought so much joy into my life died such a lonely death. But there’s one thing that never fails to make me feel better: his music. So Saturday it’s non-stop Prince as far as I’m concerned.

thing with me is, i never stopped grieving so it's not like it's reminding me, i never forgot. I'm an obsessive type fella though.

You have the right to feel what you feel. You’re still processing his transcendence. :hug:


I’m happy for Prince though, I no longer feel sad.....he is with our Heavenly Father now & I’d like to think he is at peace, free and loved. He said himself he would celebrate when he passes on to the next dimension. party love2 woot!

I've been agitated everyday since April 21, 2016. Because there hasn't been a damn thing about the whole entire situation that makes any motherfuking kind of sense to me! shrug mad

I, personally, will not be celebrating the anniversary of Prince's departure from this realm on this coming Saturday. What I will do, however, is kick back, relax in my favorite chair, covered with these...






endulging in myself in my personal Prince "stash"!

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

If not, I'm still down! grouphug I still have this one framed picture of Prince that someone sent me years ago...still my fave. wink
