Grief — A Lifetime Process?
I’ve always said that grieving is a life-time process. How I deal with it is what counts.
This week has seen me dealing with the loss of a son of a very precious friend of mine — a friend who had held my hand and was there for me during my deepest loss — the suicide of my daughter Jen when she was 16.
Their son was in my Jen’s class at prep school, so their loss and my heart going out to them is one level I sought to embrace over the past couple of days.
My personal grief was another level that had to be re-visited as I just allowed myself to feel the overwhelm and pain to begin with …
Allowing and not judging grief is a great first step on this life-long grieving journey.
This is the candle I lit this week in honour of this very precious friend and family.
