kayc Posted August 4, 2005 Report Share Posted August 4, 2005 This has been an incredible journey, these past 6 1/2 weeks. It seems like a lifetime already. We're learning things. We're survivors. There's no such thing as "pass" or "fail" at this grieving business...there's only our best. And some days are better than others. That's why we need to share with each other regularly, because when one is down and the other is having a better day, that one can encourage and lift up the one who is down. Or the person who is down can have hope that every day will not be like that. We need each other. This is the hardest journey you will undoubtedly ever face and most likely no one will understand what you're going through...unless they themselves have been there. You don't browse through this site for something to do...you come here because you're going through this same thing. You're reaching out. So many of you who have shared your raw feelings of pain, and yes, sometimes even some victory, I feel like I know you, and I pray for you and lift you up. God knows we can all use that. I am trying to get a grief support group going here in this small little town, there's a lot of people grieving. Many of us live alone and lost the only person who ever gave us a hug, who shared our hopes and dreams, who shared about your day and how it went, the person you shared your meals with, your holidays with, your vacations...the person who was essentially EVERYTHING to you. So it is essential that we get out there and meet people, make friends, find someone to give you a hug, someone who will listen and share with you, and who better than someone who is also going through this? I am very happy for my husband, he is safe, he is happy, he is in that wonderful place we now all long for...but for myself, I am going to have to make something of this rubble that is left of my life. I am going to have to give it meaning, hope, purpose. I am interested in whatever positive insights you have gleaned from your own journey! Tell me what keeps you going and how you are tackling it. Let me hear from you...thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
