On being strong

I need a good cry, but I don't want anyone to see that I've been crying so I just keep it in.

It's so difficult because this is my father-in-law who is struggling against the cancer. I'm not his child, but I love him as though I am. I don't want to see him suffer, but I don't want to let go. I'm just the spouse, so I don't feel it's fair to burden them with my pain, because how could my hurt be near what they must feel.

Keeping you and everyone around you in my thoughts as you all fight through this hurt.

I believe that it takes strength to show vulnerability. And that your pain isn't anyones burden, but it can be comforting to you and others to share your feelings of pain and grief. It needn't be a 'who hurts worse' situation. I would think that the family would be honored to know of your pain, as it honors the importance that your father-in-law holds in your life and what a wonderful man he must be to have earned your love and respect.
Hugs to you and your family.
