Grief Is A Full-Time Job!
Posted on 12th December 2023 at 13:47
Grief isn’t just a fleeting emotion; it’s a full-time time job, a full-time occupation of the heart.
The two first needs of the grieving are:
- To Have Your Pain Witnessed
- To Express Your Feelings
For those navigating the tumultuous waters of grief, finding some peace often begins with having their pain acknowledged and witnessed. In the midst of sorrow, expressing feelings isn’t just a luxury—it’s a lifeline.
To heal, grieving souls need a safe haven, a space free of judgment where their emotions can flow freely. It’s in this vulnerability that the seeds of healing are sown. Remember, your grief deserves acknowledgment; it’s valid, it’s real, and it’s a testament to the love you shared.
And remember when we are grieving, we do not need to be fixed. We do not suffer from a broken head but from a broken heart. And what we need is that safe space to be heard and talk about our loss over and over again…
As Helen Keller beautifully said, “What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” This quote resonates profoundly with those missing loved ones. Your love, their essence, endures within you, guiding you through the storm of grief towards a place of serene acceptance.
To all those grappling with loss, know this: your pain matters, your journey is honoured, and in the expression of your feelings lies the map to eventual peace.
You’re not alone—your grief is witnessed and respected.
Together, we navigate this path towards healing, one heartfelt expression at a time.
