From Grief, Depression, or Illness to Positivity & Healing

I will never forget

Filed under: Grief Info — by Sue @ 1:13 pm

Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow; but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them (Grief Never Kills – George Vallant)

Give yourself time and permission to grieve. You do not evade the expression of your grief. Purposely plan 15 minutes each day, to sit in quiet meditation and think on the one who has died. If you feel sad at the loss and the pain, allow yourself to feel the sadness and the pain. If you want to express your gratitude and love, do that. If you feel cheated and angry, acknowledge that. When the time has expired, stand up, breathe in readiness for the next task and proceed. This time of planned and scheduled grieving also contributes to your growing and sense of regathered self and a recovery of security and control (Page 60)
