When Grief Knocks On Your Door….


When grief knocks on your door several times….
You learn to re-build a new life that will never be the same as the old one.
You learn to grieve all the old times.
You learn to get by the bad moments by connecting with others,
And trying to support the people around you.

You learn to let the difficult days pass without overthinking them,
And to take your time to heal by mentioning your heartaches.

Wherever you go the memories remain with you,
And the right people with the most sensitive hearts,
Will naturally gravitate towards you.
For that I’ll forever be grateful.♥

  1. Grief can mend a broken heart when the underlying feelings are allowed and worked through without harming self or others! Some people work through it faster than others. Denigrating the suffering of another is never acceptable. We should always strive to build someone up! Blessings!

  2. Grief knocked on the door
    And I let grief in
    Grief wasn’t alone
    There was more grief within
    Grief cast the first stone
    I am not without sin
    In a battle of conscience
    It’s grief that will win

    For grief is my confidant
    Grief knows its place
    If I cannot hold you
    Then it’s grief I embrace
    Grief looks from below
    God looks from above
    I would never know grief
    If I had not known love

    So true lovely, we learn and gain strength from grief. It teaches us how to react to upcoming situations that we’ll need to handle that may be similar in the future. It’s not suffering, it’s strength just as you wrote.🌹

    1. This makes a terrific conversation for anyone grieving, I may take some points and use them in a post. There’s nothing shameful in suffering for a little while or feeling all the negative emotions.

      I’ve discovered that grief can choke us when we don’t let it flow and take it’s course. I’ve been on both sides and it’s tough.

      Society and the people around us have molded us into being okay very fast. We want to be strong and hold everything together. Talk to our friends as if nothing happened.
      Now I just step away from people who pressure me to be okay fast because it’s more harmful than we think. (Especially when we’re vulnerable and require feedback that we’re not losing our minds…lol)

      I learned ten years ago that it’s harmful to pretend everything is okay because I got to a point where one tiny trigger sent me 4 years backwards. I had my writing to get me through back then.

      Admitting I needed to be angry and cry it out was extremely tough but it has taught me that emotions are temporary even the negative ones.
      I just lost my grandmother a week ago and it has re-affirmed to me that there’s always something more beyond the anger and tears that other people don’t understand…It can be summarized with one word, “LOVE” ♥

        So very true, nothing wrong with expression. There is no negative emotion because expressing them is a positive thing.
