To hear some give advice, you would think there are rules for grieving. Ever have someone say that “you should be over it by now”? Or how about, “you need to dry your tears and get on with your life”. They are well-meaning, but the advice holds no water. Grieving is an extension of your love. It will always be there.
There are no grieving rules because each one grieves in their own way. Remember, as you loved, so,too, you will grieve. Let your tears flow…let your heart ache…let your grief find its place within. As time goes by, grieve is less painful. There are days when it rises anew as if the loss was yesterday. Let your grief to be as it should…a part of the rest of your life.
