A tragic loss can be one of the most difficult


experiences one will encounter during the 


course of life. The feelings of grief is the


normal and natural reaction to loss or change 


of any kind.

The death of a close or loved one is sure to leave 


one shattered and having mixed feelings or 


emotions. When this tragic event happens to 


someone close, it is bound to be accompanied


 by a great deal of intensely agonizing sorrow


 and heartbreak.

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. 

 “Grief only exists where


love lived first.” 


– Franchesca Cox

Nothing hurts more than the death of someone 


you care about. The pain inside can feel as if 


our soul will crumble under the weight of this


overwhelming, paralyzing grief.


 

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.

When we are navigating the deep waters of 


sorrow and loss, we may wonder how a loving 


God could allow such a painful thing to happen. 


We generally conceal our pain from the outside


 world, wrapping it in a secret mantle of silence. 


This causes sorrow to linger unexpressed in our


 bodies, weighing us down and dragging us into the


 realms of depression and/or destruction. Some 


people have come to fear grief and feel too alone 


to face the powerful energies of sorrow. Grief quite


 often bleeds into denial and/or anger.

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.

There are wounds in life that can be overcome...


transformed through hard self-work. 


Grief is NOT one of them.

Healing takes both time and focus. We can put


 off the pain, but we can't avoid it. We have to 


give ourselves permission to sit in the discomfort 


and pain. We must give ourselves permission to


 mourn, lament, sob, and weep as if it were our


 foremost concern. 

Our pain is typically relative to our love. So, we 


must allow ourselves to be sorrowful, our loved 


one has been separated from us. Let us take time


 to talk with God about it.

Grief is unpredictable, affecting each of us in slightly


 different ways. Let us give ourselves permission to


cry, weep, and feel sad!

Healing takes both time and focus. 


Grief, like love, is a powerful emotion that each


 of us feels differently. Grief does not require a 


solution any more than love does. Grief caused 


by the death of a loved one cannot be fixed 


because the cause of the grief cannot be fixed. 


Someone who was once present has left - 


that is an unchangeable fact.

Because grief is normal, 


it cannot be deactivated.

Grief, like love, is a strong emotion that each 


of us will experience differently. Grief does not


require a quick fix any more than love does.
