Grief is like Love

Grief I have learnt is like love as it all the love you want to give cannot.  all of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of yours eyes, the lump in your throat and in the hollow part of your chest.  Grief is just love with no place to go.

Permission to Grieve

Things You Should Give Yourself Permission To Let Go – Let go of drama and gossip fueled by other people. Let go of other’s negative opinions of you. Let go of toxic people, places and things. Let go of anger, resentment, comparing, regrets, worrying, blame, guilt, fear, competing, self-loathing, jealousy, and hate. Let go of the “What if’s” and “Why me” and just accept what is. Most importantly let go of the past – after you have worked through the pain of it.

Things You Need To Give Yourself Permission To Grieve About – Whatever your mind, body and soul tells you that you need to. Everyone experiences loss at different stages of life and at different intensities. I think it’s pretty safe to say that we don’t experience grief the same way as someone else does and we don’t all experience grief over the same things. Most people think on death of a friend or family member when they hear the word “grief” or “grieving”, but one can go through all the stage of grief by losing a job, a friendship, a relationship, your child growing up, your child going off to college, being a victim of a horrendous act, witnessing a tragedy or your child enduring emotional trauma from the act of another person and sometimes we can’t even figure out why or what we are grieving.
