This is something I got at Grief Support tonight and I think it speaks volumes so I wanted to share.

"We are doing well with or grief when we are grieving.

Somehow we have it backwards.

We think people are doing well when they aren't crying.

Grief is a process of walking through some painful periods

toward learning to cope again.

We do not walk this path without pain and tears

When we are in the most pain,

we are making the most progress.

When the pain is less,

we are coasting and resting up for the next steps.

People need to grieve.

Grief is not an enemy to be avoided;

it is a healing path to be walked."

from the HOPE Line Newsletter

What a wonderful piece of text you have shared with us, Mary Linda. Thank you! It is definitely thought-provoking...I think that I have been coasting and need to get back to the nitty-gritty work...;/

Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing. I agree that most people think you are okay because you aren't crying. This is a great piece to share. It definitely makes me think. I think I've been coasting along the last few weeks trying to avoid the pain. I don't know what I'd do without this site to read and post. Thanks everyone especially you Mary Linda!
