10 Inspirational Grieving Quotes to Comfort You

Have you lost someone you love? Is your heart broken and grieving and you don’t know where to turn? Sometimes reading a good grieving quote can help put your feelings into words and give you the comfort you need.

Most people will experience loss at some point in their lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Bereavement is a type of grief involving the death of a loved one. – GoodTherapy.org

It has almost been five years since my mom passed away, with my dad having passed away not even nine months after her. I can’t get over how it’s been five years, but when I look back at memories from the last few years I can see how far I’ve come.

There was a time after my parents passed away that I literally could not get out of bed. Well maybe I moved from the bed to the couch but just enough to get my kids fed and clothed and I looked forward to nothing more than to go back to bed as soon as I possible could.

But that wasn’t fair for my family. They needed me to be more present for them and not just giving them the bare minimum. What helped me was knowing there were other people who were feeling the same things I was. I was less lonely knowing that how I was feeling was universal to losing loved ones.

It still took a long time to learn how to live my life without my parents. You never actually get over losing someone and you never really move on, but you can learn to live again. You can feel happiness again.

It’s just a different kind of happiness. It’s a happiness without that person or those people to share with and be with. It’s a happiness that comes from the people still present in your lives.


No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear. – CS Lewis

Grief never ends. But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love. – Anonymous



You will lose someone you can’t life without and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp. – Anne Lamott



No longer by my side but forever in my heart. – Unknown



Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you, until we meet again. – Unknown



I will always have this piece of my heart that smiles whenever I think of you.  – Unknown




Grief is a sign that we loved something more than ourselves… grief makes us worthy to suffer with the rest of the world. – Joan Chittister
