Because we do not want to embrace this change, it is natural to fight it. And that is grief. But you know, some things are beyond our control. If we do not adapt, we will become exhausted and burn out. Our life energy will be lost.
So yes, grief sucks. The reason for it almost always sucks. We can hate the burden that it places on us. But, life asks that we keep moving and keep looking forward. There is more to enjoy ahead of us and more losses to come.
It is a universal experience.
Breath deeply, quiet your struggle, and them put one foot forward.
