    3y Saved to Grief...
    • Pamela

      Grief. Loss of self through narcissistic abuse, and loss of the relationship that you thought you'd have, has a grieving process. It's been studied and it is actually more difficult than the death of a spouse, notably that the one whom you grieve for its still walking around, a testament to the rejection and discard you've been given.

      He may not be dead, but this is exactly how I feel every single day. Complete and utter sadness. I can't move on.

      Grief - loss never leaves us but makes us stronger and deepens our empathy if we allow ourselves to move through the stages of grieving.

    • Laurie Citta

      Some people cannot understand how deep emotions of sadness and horrible heartbreak one can feel when the person who they looked up to, admired and loved more than anything leaves this Earth suddenly. There is no time limit. I still think he will call and say "I'm done with work , I'm coming over". Vince was a teacher and a Major in the Army. A man with a gentle soul I will miss everyday until I say I am able to start letting go. I will never let go. Sweet Dreams My Angel.

    Just one more day A Poem | The Grief Toolbox

    Grief is about more than your feelings


    So true.

    Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

    "After a while, you just want to be with the one that makes you laugh." - Mr. Big. SATC

    Getting through grief means accepting this fact.. the more you fight it, the harder life is going to be.

    Wish I had seen this quote during the first couple years after losing my Mom and later, my Dad. Everyone's path of grief is different, but all those paths deserve respect.
