A common lament for those grieving is “Why does it take so long?” Even the family and friends of those grieving may give tremendous support initially and then gradually fade away, acting like “it’s time to move on.” It is hard to really appreciate that grief whether it’s about person, relationship or career, identity or home can easily reverberate in one’s life so it’s not just one loss but multiple. For instance, death of a spouse can mean profound loneliness, changes in family and friends even home. Loss of a career can mean massive change in identity, self-esteem and financial hardship. Moving on isn’t as clear or easy when your life is impacted on so many levels and your heart is broken.
Grief can require tremendous courage, fortitude and patience in facing the unknown.
