Living through the seasons of grief.

Sign Posts

Insights from fellow travelers

Many have gone ahead of us on the path of grief.  They have thought deeply about the process and applied what they discovered along the way. Their insights are like encouraging sign posts as we travel the way of bereavement.  Here are just a few of my favorites that you might also find useful.

“We can endure much more than we think we can; all human experience testifies to that. All we need to do is learn not to be afraid of pain. Grit your teeth and let it hurt. Don’t deny it, don’t be overwhelmed by it. It will not last forever. One day, the pain will be gone and you will still be there.” – Harold Kushner- When All You’ve Ever Wanted Isn’t Enoughsign post 2

“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” – Earl Grollman

One cannot get through life without pain…What we can do is choose how to use the pain life presents to us. – Bernie S. Siegel
