Grief - the uninvited guest. It comes when you don't plan for it, you are never quite sure how long it will stay, and you certainly don't know how it will manifest in your emotions.
Grief does not take holidays off. In fact, it can show up even bolder than a regular Tuesday afternoon, when you might be alone, and feel free to feel all of the emotions.
Nope! It comes when it wants to, which makes it very hard to plan keeping feelings contained.
However, what might happen if grief was invited in, attended to and witnessed? Would it feel too vulnerable and perhaps too uncomfortable?
Courage - being afraid, but walking through the fear anyone.
Could you be more strong than you think?
Could you feel all of the emotions of grief, and still be heartbroken, yet slowly witnessing the pain to walk through the grief?
Honoring and witnessing the grief and finding the right support, slowly gives you the courage to invite grief in, not keeping it out, all the while creating a safe place to for open and honest sharing of emotions, which help to lead to healing.
