Grief is unique
"Grief never ends, but it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith, it is the price of love." -anonymous-
Grief does not need to be overwhelming and constant, but it will never leave us. The emotions can be just under the surface, ready to burst forth at the slightest memory. It does change, it does soften, but it will always be present. Give yourself permission to grieve.
Grief is not a mirror of our faith or our strength, but not everyone is open to express their mourning in public. Find "your style" of mourning...some people talk it out, some write it out, but each person is different. Give yourself permission to mourn...to express your feelings.
Grief is not something we just "get over".
It is a process, a difficult journey of unfamiliar feelings.
Your love was unique...so allow your grief to be unique. Your grief is as personal as your fingerprint. Give yourself permission to be different, even different from those in your own family.
It is OK...life ends, not love.
