"A mourning moment" by bob willis
Can you find any words on this list of "feelings" that you can identify with? If you have experienced a loss, if you are on a grief journey, you can probably relate to many of these "feeling words":
Frustrated, critical, cold, detached, indifferent, angry, offended, bitter, peaceful, calm, hopeful, content, sad, afraid, anxious, miserable, depressed, regretful, guilty, lonely, worried, confused.
The majority on this list are considered "bad feelings", and we should feel uncomfortable if they overwhelm our lives. It is always good to ask ourself the reason some feelings are so intense.
Unresolved grief can create these "bad feelings". Trying to continue a relationship while struggling with these feelings can create even more difficulty.
If you could express yourself to your loved one..."What do you want them to know?", "What would you like to hear from them?", "Do you need to apologize to them?", "Do you need to forgive them?".
In the middle of the list are some "positive feeling words". Seek these feelings for your heart and mind. Spend time repairing relationships...it is worth the effort.
