Grief is Good for the Soul
These days, a hip marketing tool is to make everything simple, fast, and easy to achieve, with expected quick results. However, there are some areas that we need to explore calmly, taking time for gratitude, and personal growth, for example, grief. These actions are like taking necessary medicine.
Grief is a type of personal improvement “medicine.” Grief isn’t unhealthy, although resisting or avoiding it can be. Healthy grieving and experiencing the emotional pain associated with it can be healing. It is a natural response to feel helpless at difficult times in your life.
Being able and willing to share your feelings, giving your pain a “voice,” and offering help to others, even while grieving over our loss, are positive ways to grieve. The physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms of normal grief, moving through the process from
shock to acceptance, are all healthy ways to prevent the need for anti-depressant medications. So perhaps grief, like exercise, can help prevent the need for medicine.
Reaching out with positive action can help change your life and possibly someone else’s.
“Grief never ends, but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor lack of faith… it is the price of love.” Unknown
