Grief is natural, though not easy
Grief is a natural process, it is the price we pay for loving someone. But that doesn’t mean that it is an easy thing to cope with.
To grieve we need to find a way of enduring the pain that comes with the loss, without fighting or blocking it. We must find a way of living with a reality that we don’t want to be true. Finding a way to live with the pain is what helps us to heal.
We do not ‘get over’ a loss, but we can learn to grow round it, we carry that person with us, even whilst we know that they are no longer here.
