What’s YOUR Grief, Interrupted?

June 17, 2010

Grief, Interrupted comes in forms too many to count. The big ones — death, serious illness, divorce — often get interrupted by buying into some of the wrongheaded things other people say:

  • “You must get on with your life.”
  • “Be strong for the children.”
  • “It wasn’t meant to be.”

And every day we have mini-endings, saying goodbye to experiences again and again. Our children pass milestones, we lose a treasured object, a dear friend moves away, we reach the last page of a great novel. We may not recognize these events as a time to grieve, but that is what we are doing. By honoring the grief, by noticing the sadness or anger or whatever emotion we’re experiencing, we actually create more peace in our lives.

What’s your grief, interrupted? I’d love to hear your stories.

And if you know anyone who might be interested in this, please pass along this post. Thanks.
