The death of a close or loved one
is sure to leave one shattered and conflicted.
When this tragic event happens to someone close,
it is bound to be accompanied by
a great deal of intense sorrow and grief.
For most people who have experienced a loss,
the immediate and direct emotions they feel,
when that person dies,
are tremendous sadness and paralyzing pain.
Dealing with death is a life experience
that no one wants to face. No one knows the deep
ache and/or numbness one can experience
when they lose a loved one.
A tragic loss can be one of the most difficult
experiences one will encounter during the course of life.
Feelings of grief is the normal and natural
reaction to loss or change of any kind.
The overwhelming feelings and emotions that surround
the experience is bound to be accompanied
by a great deal of mental suffering, intense sorrow,
grief, regret, numbness, disbelief, and shock.
Grief is when you have the desire to place a phone call,
then realizing, that loved one is no longer there.
We all express grief in different ways.
The range of normal grief is vast and often related
to an individual’s circumstances.
Let us not allow the world
to put some arbitrary time limit on our grief.
Allowance must be made
so that our grief may be fully experienced
and processed in its own time.
