Grief never ends is a very common belief, but it’s not true. Grief changes, because when you grieve a loss you are on a journey, whether you like it or not.
A journey is about travelling, learning, growing; making mistakes, discovering and exploring. During this you will be changing; you can’t help it. So ditch the thought of ‘grief never ends’ and say to yourself instead ‘Grief is a journey’.
I realised fairly recently that I had been crossing turbulent seas, having been cast off into the waters of grief. But now I am in a new safe harbour. Where are you on that journey?
