Asleep In Grief


Andy

Recommended Posts

Recently I have experienced some events which have rekindled the grief I felt over 17 years ago when my wife ended our relationship. Marty has suggested a book called The Way of Transition. The author writes that if we are to complete a healthy transition following the grief coming from such a loss, we must let go of some of our "outlooks". He continues:

Until we let go of them [our old outlooks on our life], we are held in an "enchantment". Like Sleeping Beauty, we are unaware of what is really going on around us. At first that unawareness may protect us, but one day it begins to close us down, to put us into a sleep, to wall us off from life. If we are lucky, a transition comes along to wake us up. If we are unlucky, we sleep through the rest of our lives.
