How do you grieve?
Grieving can be easy or hard. It can throw you into a hole and it can make you stronger. For some, it hits immediately and others not for months. For myself, it never ends.
Do you handle it "right"? Or a way others tell you you should? If you "forget" what has happened, does it mean you will be ok? Should we all grieve the same?
I have been grieving the loss of my great Grandmother for 9 years, my Grandfather for almost 4 and a baby for about 6 months. Time won't make these feelings disappear. Nor, will it make life easier. Am I supposed to feel like they are watching over me? Do you feel like your loved ones are watching you?
Sometimes I want to curl up in a bubble and forget everything that has happened. Then I realize, this is a life cycle and we can't run. I have to be strong for my children and husband. Granted, I haven't lost what most people have. The stories in the news about car accidents and children loosing their parents or a spouse loosing their significant other, devastate me. I could not imagine going through that. Have you suddenly lost someone like this?
