The capacity to love requires the necessity to grieve when someone you love dies. You can’t heal unless you openly express your grief. Denying your grief will only make it become more confusing and overwhelming. Reconciling your grief will not happen quickly. Remember that grief is a process, not an event. Be patient and tolerant with yourself. Never forget that the death of a loved one changes your life forever. It’s not that you won’t be happy again, it’s simply that you will never be exactly the same as you were before the death.
For each of us – rich or poor, young or old – there are times in our lives when we must face and deal with personal losses and the pain and sorrow that they cause. Losses are simply a part of life. Like their counterparts among the joyful occasions in our lifetime – the birth of a child, a celebration of marriage, or an enduring friendship – they are part of what it means to share in the human experience. And the emotions they create in us are part of living, as well.
