Notion of Grief

“I had my own notion of grief.

I thought is was the sad time that followed

the death of someone you love…and you had to push

through it to get to the other side.

But I’m learning there is no other side.

There is no pushing through.

But rather, there is absorption…adjustment…acceptance.

Grief is not something you complete, but rather, you endure.

Grief is not a task to finish and move on, but an

element of yourself…an alteration of your being.

A new way of seeing.

A new definition of self.”
