The loss of her daughter and husband are finally starting to sink in. She’s beginning to realize they’re never coming back.
Vanessa Bryant takes to social media to give an emotional response to how she’s getting along.
Her Instagram post begins, “I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me.”
“It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters.” she continues.
“Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process.”
“I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.” the widow’s post finished.
Vanessa hasn’t been very active on social media since the helicopter crash on January 26th which took the lives of her husband, Kobe Bryant, daughter Gianna, and seven other people she knew.
This post goes into the details of how she’s been coping, grieving this irreplaceable, horrifying loss. Fans flood in with replies of support and encouragement.
“Man after reading this I felt the pain again. All too familiar. Praying for you and the other families. Embrace the tears, pray a lot and stay strong. You’re not by yourself,” reads one Instagram comment, expressing how powerful words are.
“My heart aches with yours ?I can’t begin to@imagine. ?” chimes in another, sympathizing with the situation.
“You have a multitude of people lifting you and your family in prayer and the other families as well. There doesn’t go a day that the people that surround me or myself don’t think about you all.? We don’t know each other personally but we are connected with your family as fans and human beings. Sending you love and prayers.” comments another Instagram user, summing up the majority of the comment section.
“May God give you the strength to carry on. You all continue to be in my prayers ?” reads another.
