No Cheating Allowed!
I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but grief doesn’t allow us to skip steps. It may even choose that we revisit a step more than once – more than 100 times – until your mind, heart and body are ready to move on to the next one.
Grief is a healing process. Much like a physical wound that needs time to heal, the wound of grief has its own timeline. And, as any of us who has been left with a scar or a broken – yet mended – bone that aches from the impending rain, you’ll be changed when you’re finished all the steps in the process. Changed in ways you’ll barely see, or feel. Until it rains.
Quotation for the Day
“Perhaps the reassuring thing about grieving is that the process will not be cheated.” ~ Martha W. Hickman
