“Couldn’t have seen it coming”

Nothing could have prepared me for what was coming.

Nothing.

I thought I had everything together.

I thought there was nothing which could stop me.

I was wrong.

Very wrong.

All that I believed was wrong.

And there was nothing which could have prepared me for what was coming.

I can still remember when it happened.

I was in my house, watching the news when the story came on.

I remember how my breath disappeared and my heart sunk to the bottom of my stomach.

What had just happened? Was all I could think.

I thought, foolishly, for a couple of days that I could get through it.

That it wouldn’t affect me.

But I was wrong.

It destroyed me.

And the worst thing was that I couldn’t have seen it coming.

Even if I would have looked for it.
