Grief as we know is a natural response to loss. It is the pain we feel when something or someone we love is taken away. Often the pain of loss is overwhelming, and a person can experience all kinds of emotions, from anger to shock, to guilt, disbelief and profound sadness. The pain of grief can also disrupt your physical health, making it next to impossible to sleep, eat, think straight.
No one knows how long grief will last, or how you should feel after a certain amount of time. After a year it may still feel as if everything happened yesterday, or it may feel like it all happened ages ago. Grief will vary person to person, so try not to compare yourself to people. Remember there is no specific time frame for grieving.
As you find peace again and move on from the loss, this means that you have accepted the loss. But please note that’s not the same as forgetting. At this point you are able to move forward and look back on the memory of your loss and feel more love than pain.
Grief is a journey, it is not a destination.
I wish you peace and serenity.
