There's a Reason You're Here

We all need to grieve. To shed sorrow and recover the joy of life. Grief is a natural response to loss. It strikes in direct proportion to love: the more we love a person or a thing, the more we experience grief when we lose it or them. In our world there are so many things that cause us pain and sorrow:

 

  • Big griefs: our loved ones die; our relationships end; we lose our jobs.  AND

  • Everyday griefs: a friend lets us down; our children struggle; we feel the loss of roots and community; we are beset by anxiety and fear about the state of the world.

 

Some days life is just hard. Grief that is held down or suppressed blocks joy or happiness; and – worse – we may feel anger, rage and frustration. Or sometimes we just feel numb. It’s tiring trying to keep all these feelings in.
