On Saturday morning, Victoria shared that she is now facing ‘terrifying fears of loss’ as she shared a photograph of her kissing the singer as he lay in a hospital bed.
She wrote: ‘Love is the most beautiful and powerful thing that we can experience as humans but love can also feel painful especially if you are afraid of losing a person or anything else that you love.’
In a long and loving statement, she called for the need to ‘acknowledge and appreciate and accept’ every part of love, even the painful parts.
‘Sometimes when you love very deeply you will find yourself facing terrifying fears of loss that can feel so big and devastating that you don’t know how you can survive them and you can’t imagine life without this person that you love.’
The author, known for her spiritual beliefs and introspection, said she is working to ‘expand your consciousness beyond the limitations of your mind… discover more of who you really are and more of who your soul really is and more of your connection with this person who you love.’
‘You might alternate between terror and a sense of peace,’ she wrote, adding ‘fear is an unknown place and this is what makes it so frightening.’
She finished: ‘Stay tuned in to love no matter what is happening in your world and keep inviting all of your angels and guides to support you and know that love is always the best choice.’
Hundreds of fans of the doting couple shared their love and support in the comments, many offering their prayers and good health to Shane.
