"When we realize that we haven't cherished every moment...is when the grief becomes insufferable." - etconscioushealing
Grief is a dark hole. A dark hole filled with nothing. Emptiness. Void. Pure and complete vacantness. The screams from this hole...it echos so loud. Grief...is nothing but a cry that says..."something or someone has been taken from me."
The pain...can sometimes be unbearable. Grief...makes us wonder if it's day or night...because we simply cannot even tell anymore. We cannot even see the days...nor do we really care...
The emptiness that grief is bound to, is simply just unresolved anger. Anger towards why something or someone was taken away from us. Why it was me. Why me. Why. We don't understand.
Grief...is our own way of trying to show ourselves...that whatever we 'lose,' whoever we 'lose,' is never far away from us. They are apart of us.
Why is grief so strong when it relates to a person?
The grief that we feel is strong, because not only are we housing our own grief, we are also carrying the grief for what the vision was, the vision that was created for what was to come for us and this person. Or maybe we are grieving the things that we never said. And now, the chance has been snatched. Grief...is anger towards the universe...how dare the universe allow me to imagine a future together with this person if it wasn't going to happen, how can the universe let me envision this. How cruel. Right?
We wonder why...our path together was ended early. But grief is also love...still loving what you envisioned, still loving the what was, still appreciating it. Grief shows us that every moment is important, that every moment...is precious. When we realize that we haven't cherished every moment...is when the grief becomes insufferable.
As we grieve, we are releasing our love, all of the love we weren't able to give. Allow yourself to cry, to hate, to scream, to kick, to release. You are permitted to do so. Do not hold in your grief, do not deny it, do not shame it, release the energy and send the energy back where it can begin to transform...because in love...the journey is endless.
