Monday Minutes Challenge

Here's my entry for the Monday Minutes Challenge! I'm starting with the sentence: Everyone told me not to blame myself, but I knew, deep down, I could have prevented it. 181 words.



It wasn’t my fault.

Jenny told me so. And the doctors. Plus, Coral’s grandparents.  I wasn’t the one driving. It was pitch black out there, not to mention her lights had been going out. There was nothing I could have done.

Their assurance didn’t make me feel better. Even if I did believe it, I still would’ve felt hopeless, like I was being sucked into a black pit. My parents said it’ll be hard. The first days would be like this. But I will get better. Someday.

I should believe them when they told me I wasn’t to blame, that I would get better. After all, I always trusted them.  Before this, I hated being sad. Now that’s all I am. Just when I think I can convince myself that it wasn’t my fault, a voice inside reminds me of the truth. It’s three little words, yet it echoes in my mind.

“They don’t know.”

 Nothing matters once I hear that. Nothing ever will. Everyone told me not to blame myself, but I knew, deep down, I could have prevented it.
 
Thanks for reading!
In Christ,
Sarah
