What I think about cherries
People who get to know me soon discover I have a slight addiction for items, jewels and accessories with cherries on it Some may think it is because of the fruit, so summerish and colorful, others because I have som VIP subscription to the club Pacha in Barcelona (true story !)
Yet, if I like cherries that much, it’s for none of those reasons.
In may 2015, I lost one of my best friends from cancer. One of her biggest regret that year was that she couldn’t taste the cherries of this year.
Since then, I see in this fruit a way to honor her memory. After her death, I surrounded myself of “cherries” item, trying to surround myself of her presence even though her memory was still so strong : cherry clutch, cherry jewels, cherry tee-shirt. Even three years after, the obsession comes back when I see one of those objects.
Why telling you all of this today ? Because I found this nice Only tee-shirt a few times ago and that the obsession got back. Because even three years after, even if the hardest part of mourning has gone and that I am fine, she is still very present in me.
Why being so personal with you now, when I barely unveil my privacy with you ? Because I read more and more articles about personal topics, and that I feel less alone.
Because loosing someone makes you weaker but also stronger, and that sharing my experience, reading similars, made me stronger too.
I then hope that you will be benevolent with me… and that you will like cherries now as much as her and I do. (:
