It’s a choice. This thing called grief. Not a choice of experience. But a choice of full on facing it. Embracing it. Walking through it. Or… ignoring it. Pushing it deep down in the dark. Facing the world with I’m fine smiles and wanting to believe it yourself.
Embracing the idea that you have lost something or someone. Whether a loved one or a dream, a home or pet. It’s all loss. And it all brings grief. Grief… A natural response to loss, a deep anguish. It can send us spiraling, turn us inside out. Bring out the worst in us or the best in us… But there is healing. And the healing only comes by walking through.
There is no special formula, in dealing with grief, no timetables, no magic pill to swallow. It ebbs and flows like the tides of the ocean. Unique to each of us. A journey. And that journey ends in joy.
God, are you there?
I’m here. I am right here.
