When in grief

Sometimes words may say nothing...

Coping with loss and sadness is one of the hardest challenges that many of us face.

When in grief after losing a very dear person, words may say nothing... for long, long time...

This post is more than a sympathy note, it is a poem dedicated to all the people that feel down at one moment in life while being in grief after the ones that we loved so much, were very important to us, but passed the way too soon, and we miss them dearly... 
every single day...

Sometimes words are not enough to comfort our grieving adults soul when we have to face, handle and adjust to an irreversible loss...

Sometimes words may say nothing, sometimes friendship cannot help as much as it's supposed to do or we are willing for, but holding a hand, saying a nice word or simply listen, be there, care, offer honest support and empathy always count.

Sometimes our thoughts may reach in a delicate moment, sometimes we hope that they may count and heave a meaning...

As simple humans... we may not always function or feel by the book, as are moments in life when...
We are down or we are up,
We need help or we are brave,
We are weak or we are strong,
We don't care or we get involved,
We hate or we love,
We blame or we treasure,
We vanish or we cherish...

Sometimes we feel that we do belong to this strange world and we're accepted, sometimes we cannot find our peace of mind or place even within the self,

Sometimes we live at fullest, hope and dream, sometimes we're hurt and hit the bottom,

Sometimes we desperately need to share and love, sometimes we cannot bear ourselves,

Sometimes we get frustrated and confused with each new element encountered, sometimes we learn to be happy with every single thing around,

Sometimes we think that we've experienced so many things already and we would be able to handle anything, while sometimes we cannot see the light and get the drive for one more single step ahead...


But always, always, when we take few moments to look deep inside our soul, listen to our heart, trust our inner self and strength, our mind we'll find a way to help us made it to the surface!


7 quotes about grief:
1. "Sorrow makes us all children again - destroys all differences of intellect. The wisest know nothing." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
2. "The pain passes, but the beauty remains." - Pierre Auguste Renoir
3. "Excess of grief for the dead is madness; for it is an injury to the living, and the dead know it not." - Xenophon
4. "You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present." - Jan Glidewell
5. "We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." - Kenji Miyazawa
6. "Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind." - Marcel Proust
7. "Don't be ashamed to weep; it's right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us." - Brian Jacques, Taggerung


7 stages of grief - Read about the seven stages of grief (shock, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, hope) and learn to cope with the death of a loved one dealing with the grieving process.


Words can deeply touch and penetrate the deepest part of our hearts and souls, when spoken with honesty and passion directly from the heart.

When words are used to comfort someone who's grieving, it helps them feel that they are not alone, are loved and have a shoulder to comfort on, so, words can bring a drop of tranquility, hope and enlightenment.

And sometimes... words... may simply not be enough to help empower the mind of a grieving person, and I deem that for a grieving person to heal and recover, she/ he or she needs a lot of of space and healing time alone in order to be able to fully accept the loss and go through the whole process of healing and recovery, to be able to pray and meditate, to think and reflect on life as a whole will definitely help.
