Grief Just Is

 

We all walk through the journey of grief in our own way. Your way may not be the same as anyone else. Judgment of yourself or others helps no one and can actually cause additional pain and make grieving more difficult than it already is. Please consider embracing a positive, all-inclusive view that allows for the uniqueness of each person and the whole experience.

There is no right way to grieve. There is no wrong way to grieve. Grief just is.

Cry all that you need to
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Save a few keepsakes of your companions’ life for yourself
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Reach out to family and friends for support and comfort
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Allow yourself to talk about your loss
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Give yourself all the time you need to grieve
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Acknowledge that you are ready to welcome a new companion
Don’t be surprised or hurt if others don’t
Neither way is wrong. Each just is

Tell us what you think.  Please share with us your experiences and advice gained from walking this journey.
