I’ve sat with my grief.

I’ve sat with my grief, watched it morph into denial, anger and then anxiety.

I’ve sat with my grief watched the days and dreams fly past me.

I’ve sat with my grief and sensed all of my shattered pieces beneath me.

I’ve sat with my grief and I could swear I’ve never felt lonelier.

I’ve spoken with my grief and watched all my fears float away.

I’ve looked at grief with a soft, tender heart and I’ve learned about a new kind of beauty that can be felt and mentioned.

I have sat with my grief and it has shown me that it can be a companion I shouldn’t be afraid of it.

    When you sit and look at something, you learn about it. Wonderfully put lovely, finding strength in something that’s designed to weaken.🌹

    This is so beautiful. Such a beautiful way to approach grief, though we have to go through those stages, don’t we?

    1. Yes, we do have to go all the stages…That’s why it’s crucial to understand grief and sit with it without rushing into healing. Also without comparing ourselves to others. Let every stage run it’s course so there would come a day when you accept them all.

        So wise… grief may run the gauntlet of stages but each individual processes it differently at each stage. We can never compare ourselves to others.

      5. I’m against not going through something fully especially emotionally. I really believe the only way out is through…

        Absolutely. We cannot reach death without first living, no matter how long it takes us to get there.
