Grieving Inspirational Quotes for Healing
I am finding it hard to work today. My husband and I received some very sad news about an old friend’s husband and it’s so difficult to process. Lately I feel like there is so much sadness and turmoil in the world. One way I am able to make sense of things and calm my brain is with grieving inspirational quotes. Sometimes being able to read the words helps to put things into perspective. It creates an understanding to help process one’s feelings.
Grief is one of the most profound emotions because it is never ending. One never actually “gets over” their grief. They simply learn to live with. You learn to live differently. You feel different. You see the world different. You are never the same after a loved one passes away.
There was a time when I lost my grandparents and my parents in a 5 year span and each time I felt sucked down to a puddle. By the time my father died, almost 5 years ago to this day (July 4th), I could not even get up. The grief just knocked me down so hard I couldn’t see straight. But talking about the feelings and reading about grief helped me see again and get out of that fog. You need to go one and live again for those that need you. My family helped me see that they deserved a happy life despite the loss of our family members. I needed to take care of myself so I could be there for my family again.
Sometimes I feel sucked down again into the muck, but then I see the sun, the butterflies and hear the birds and I know that my loved ones who passed away would not want that for me. Make sure you take time for yourself. Go to the beach and sit and listen to the waves. Go into the woods and listen to the birds. Sit in the sun and feel the warmth on your face. It’s hard. I know it is.
I give you this, one thought to keep.
I am with you still, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush…
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone –
I am with you still, in each new dawn.
Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.
Grief, I’ve learned,
is really just love.
It’s all the love you want to give,
but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up
in the corners of your eyes,
the lump of your throat,
and in that hollow part of your chest.
Grief is just love with no place to go.
I should have hugged you tighter and longer the last time I saw you.
There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains. — Unknown
