Sheryl Sandberg knows she will never stop grieving for the loss of her husband Dave Goldberg, but one month after his sudden passing, she wants to choose life.”I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice. You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning,” Sandberg wrote in a heartbreaking and remarkable Facebook post on Wednesday.
This marks her most extensive and candid public comments since Goldberg, the beloved chief executive of SurveyMonkey, died suddenly from a severe head trauma while on vacation last month.
“These past thirty days, I have spent many of my moments lost in that void. And I know that many future moments will be consumed by the vast emptiness as well,” she continued. “But when I can, I want to choose life and meaning.”
