If you have lost a loved one, you are about to, or have already started to, take the arduous journey of "picking of your sticks." This journey will require you to examine your very existence. It is hard for a person who has never lost a mate, or another loved one, to understand the depth to which your soul may sink. It is as if a part of you has been ripped away and kind and well-meaning words, thoughts and deeds will not help to lessen its intensity.
In fact, you may even shun them, for you want to feel the searing pain in your heart – just so you know you can feel SOMETHING! What is hard to realize at the inception of your loss is that this will be a defining moment in your life. You will either DECIDE to just SURVIVE by going through the motions of life without the emotions, OR you will DECIDE to THRIVE.
THE DECISION IS YOURS. You can make a conscious decision to move forward through your grief journey in order to find a place of peace, acceptance, and personal renewal, or you can decide to stay stuck in sadness forever. Over time, you must learn to put your grief in perspective and let it work for you, rather than be its slave. It is not possible to go back in time before your loss. Your ultimate power lies in how you respond to the new circumstances of your life.
