There was a period when I thought, blimey we gave to pretend that this is not happening. We have, as fans, to look away and enjoy what she gives us, turning a blind eye to the rest. Now I see that all alng she hid very little. We went on the journey with her and she drew strength from the love and appreciation and belief. She glowed when on stage. Even when things got really tough, she still gave it her all. As Aretha said, what a trouper.
I feel inspired by her. No obstacle I will come across will be as tough as that. With such cruelty. Comprehensive misery, and with such unrelenting scrutiny and little real support, and yet she fought. She really fought. I admire Mariah, I enjoy beyonce remixes and videos, yet I love Whitney, because she loved and needed us much mire then other artists will. Thankfully.

Sometimes I just can't help but think of that dreaded day, and the topic that appeared on CW the day she passed, "Whitney Houston Has Died, Rest In Peace". Looking back that was really a traumatic experience for me, who has never witnessed a death in my own family or friends. It completely changed me. I literally felt I was a different person since Feb 2012. I became more pessimistic. I lost my interest in music. I prefer to spend my day on my own and could lock up myself in my room just watching old clips of Whitney. Although I'm fully aware that her legacy will last forever, I'm always scared that one day she'll be forgotten, no one will buy her records, her label no longer sells her music, WF and CW close down, etc. And I try not to follow what's going in her family (I haven't even read Cissy's book) - because I feel like it's too heartbreaking to hear what they're doing now. And whenever I see the brilliant things MJ's estate has done, I think of how Pat is tarnishing Whitney's legacy and how Sony is missing on huge opportunities to promote her legacy. That's what saddens me.
Whenever I feel down, I think of this photo to remind me that she's in a better place now, smiling at me from heaven.

You just summed up my emotions as well. Mariah is my number 2 favorite diva so I love that she's still out and doing her thing. I have friends who are die hard Mariah fans and I hear them talk about their excitement for the new album, and new MC era. While I'm happy and would love to see her come back and slay the world, part of me gets a little jealous. It's not fair to me that your favorite diva is still here but mine is gone.
