Grief and Loss is Inevitable
It is important to consider the inevitable experience of grief and loss. Why? Because everyone’s life happens in between new life and new death. Outside of these moments of great love and great suffering life carries on in a seemingly normal consistent fashion. It is dangerous to get two complacent as inevitably grief and loss will show up in the form of a lost pet or a lost friend or a lost spouse. It is these moments where our normal life journey can seemingly fall into disruption. This disruption can be a surprise for those who are not ready for it or don’t expect it.
“Life happens in between new life and new death.”
Life is a Series of Hello’s and Goodbye’s
Life is a series of hello’s and goodbye’s. This is why it is important to be prepared and to keep in mind that this is normal. Life is a series of hello’s and goodbye’s, a series of loss and new life. This is our world this is the human experience. It is built into nature. In these moments of grief and loss we lean on our community We lean on therapists, friends, church members, and others who sympathize and empathize.
“I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”
