GRIEF IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS
Grief is the expected internal feelings and thought in response to a major change, a death or the end of a valued relationship. Mourning is the outward expression of these feelings and thought, which allows us some release. Grief and mourning take large amounts of physical and emotional energy so you may not be able to work full time or find you may concentrate less well. It is good to say out loud or put in writing all t he feeling that may be part of the loss:
The intensity of all these feelings can have you wondering about the powers of good and evil in this world.
HOW CAN I FEEL SOME SENSE OF PEACE IN RELATION TO MY LOSSES?
To feel some sense of peace is to become reconciled with the changes that death brings. Death and loss have caused a great breaking apart of a future that seemed secure and full of color. This security and joy can never be recovered in the same way. Bringing together the pieces in a new wholeness is reconciliation. Learning to trust ourselves, experiencing joy in new way and beings surprised by hope will be a part of the new wholeness. Making time for the tasks of grief will assist the process toward reconciliations and wholeness.
