“You give yourself permission to grieve by recognizing the need for grieving. Grieving is the natural way of working through the loss of a love. Grieving is not weakness nor absence of faith. Grieving is as natural as crying when you are hurt, sleeping when you are tired or sneezing when your nose itches. It is nature’s way of healing a broken heart.” – Doug Manning
Don’t let anyone tell you how to grieve.
The loss of a relationship, a family member, a friend, a pet –
You must walk it out your own way. In your own time.
It cannot be rushed based on someone else’s timetable.
Or someone else’s method.
If people shy away while you are grieving, try not to take it so personal. Some folks just don’t know what to do with those kind of deep feelings. They’d rather run that actually dip into such things.
So grieve my friends.
I don’t suggest making a home there –
But if that’s all you feel you can do, reach out to a capable soul & ask for help. It is there.
And always, cry out to Jesus with it over & over – He never tires.
I know that first-hand.
Much love y’all,
