The Isolation of Grief

At the time of loss, there is family and friends to support and comfort you. They are present most all the time during those first few days. Though they cannot lessen your grief, they are there to help you bear the loss.

Then, after those initial days of loss, you find yourself alone. Everyone has returned to the business of living. They think of you, but they are no longer at your side. It is as if you are isolated from the world. This is the time when you hurt the most, when it would be so easy to give in to your grief…to give up. This is the time when you choose to live.
