I have a better question. Can we learn to live with what has happened in our lives? Can we see past the pain to realize that our life is worth living no matter who is in it?
Many people, early on in their life, decide that life is hard. Some even say it is impossible without a certain person in it. I have lost some of my loved ones and even my son to death. I know it can be difficult and seem overwhelming at times. I know some days it’s hard to get out of bed because of the grief.
You may have even said that you would take their place if you could. You might have begged God to take you instead. You could have asked why, and you still have a problem knowing or finding the answer.
I am here to tell you that you are not alone. There are people, just like you, wondering and waiting for an answer to the always asked question, “When will you be getting over your grief?”
I wish I could tell you there is a magic wand we could buy and wave in the air to make all the pain just melt away. That just isn’t so! I pray that I can, somehow, reach out and touch your heart to let you know you are not alone.
I want to hug you and tell you it will be ok. However, even if I do, it will not make you feel better. Pain is processed differently by everyone. The time at which we endure the pain is measured by each of us on our scale and with our perceptions.
I do agree that life can suck when loved ones are dying. Also, I agree life throws us curve balls that we do not expect, and they come fast!
However, I can tell you there’s hope for a happier life. Every minute doesn’t have to suck. Will there be some down days? Yes. Will life rock you and make you drop to your knees? Of course! That is life isn’t it? Life isn’t always easy, but it isn’t always hard either.
Finding balance takes work but it is worth it in the end! Let me help you gain control. Send me a message today at email@example.com and I will be happy to assist you on your way to successfully managing your grief.
