The Uniqueness of Your Grief – Day #184

Yesterday, we talked about how grief is a natural part of life. But, I want to add something to that: your experience is unique. No one will grieve exactly as you do. Because of this essential exclusivity, you may feel that you can’t talk about how you’re feeling, because you know that no one truly understands what you are going through. That’s a common enough.

Although countless people have experienced grief before you, each person’s response to grief is different. Your path of grief may be uniquely your own, but you owe it to those around you to share your experiences. See yourself as an educator, a teacher; a guide.

Don’t remain closed to them; instead, open up, and share. Such conversations will bring greater closeness, and comfort for all concerned.

Quotation for the Day

“Between grief and nothing I will take grief.” – William Faulkner
