I have learnt that it is very tempting to want to ‘hate’ grief,
I have learnt that society tends to see it as the enemy as an unwelcome guest. Instead, we should try opening ourselves to grief and ask it what it has to teach us. We need to ask it what it is training us to do and to be. We should ask why this uninvited teacher is in our life and then you will begin to notice how things shift and change.
We need to remember that grief never asked us to let go of love. Grief is neither an illness or a pathological condition however, it is a highly personal and normal response to life-changing events. It is a natural process that can lead to great healing and immense personal growth.
The transition through this difficult time is a courageous journey. The tears we shed have a wisdom all their own. They come when we are relaxed enough to let go and to work through our sorrow. They are the natural bleeding of an emotional wound,
carrying the poison out of our system.
It is here that the road to recovery lies and our transformation begins.
