Dealing with grief is a lengthy, painful process. You have to remind yourself that taking the time to grieve is okay. Some days may hit you harder than others when it comes to loss, whether it be a person or even an animal. It’s not easy but you have to remember that you won’t feel like that forever.
Over the last two years, I’ve found myself grieving the loss of so many loved ones. It wasn’t easy and some days, I find myself missing them even more. It’s been incredibly difficult but I am making it through as best as I can.
Here are some quotes that have helped me grieve:
“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”Winnie the Pooh
“No matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your grief.”Faraaz Kazi
“And perhaps there is a limit to the grieving that the human heart can do. As when one adds salt to a tumbler of water, there comes a point where simply no more will be absorbed.”Sarah Waters
“We bereaved are not alone. We belong to the largest company in all the world–the company of those who have known suffering.”Helen Keller
“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.”Kenji Miyazawa
“Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the power of the mind.”Marcel Proust
“Grief is love not wanting to let go.”Earl A. Grollman
