It’s interesting to me that we have the perspective that we will just get over deep loss.
That’s not the way it works. Instead, the loss becomes part of us. It becomes part of the fabric of who we are. We take it in, we absorb it, and it becomes part of us.
But, that’s okay. In fact, it’s a gift. But only if we allow it to be. If we allow ourselves to feel, to reflect, to learn, to grow….loss creates a deep compassion. ..a strong but gentle knowing when we see loss in the eyes of another. We can respond in a way that helps heal other’s hearts, continuing our own healing at the same time.
I am gratefulfor this gift.
