When all seems hopeless, I will remember that I am progressing through my grief, that I am processing the loss, that my most disturbing feelings are a sign I am grieving. And that although right now life doesn't even have a spark of hope, in the days ahead my pain will ease.

MossimoLove..you are so welcome. I wish I could take the credit for it. I found it online and it means alot to me as well. The "feelings" that come with grief have been hard for me to cope with. The "feelings" have made me want to give up hope. The idea that there is light at the end of this tunnel is a hopeful thought. And there truly is. I was so overcome and overwhelmed with painful "feelings" that I saw no way out because there was nothing that came to mind or would come to mind as to how I could get rid of the feelings. Grief is cyclical. It comes and goes and runs it course. On it's own the painful feelings ease. It can take a very long time however. And during that long time we are hopeless. Feelings like and deceive us. They tell us there is no hope when there is. There is hope that the pain will ease. The "feelings" are/is the grief. Don't be afraid of them. God bless you.

TazDad, i know the "feeling". The worst "feelings" in the world are hoplessless, sadness, despair, loneliness, fear. And wouldn't you know it? We "feel" all of them while grieving. And all at once! Talk about a reason to want to give up. But "feelings" like and deceive us. They tell us there is no hope when there is. There is is hope that the pain will ease. And it will. That is a 100% guarantee. When I was at my worst, the one thing that kept me stuck was a strong belief that "this will never go away".  The pain does ease over time and it keeps easing. It takes a while. The pain is what someone should be feeling given the circumstances. Over time we become less focused on how we "feel" and during those moments we aren't suffering as much. Experiencing not suffering gives us hope. You will suffer less and less. That's a promise. The "feelings" are/is the grief. Don't be afraid of them. God bless you.





When all seems hopeless, I will remember that I am progressing through my grief, that I am processing the loss, that my most disturbing feelings are a sign I am grieving. And that although right now life doesn't even have a spark of hope, in the days ahead my pain will ease.

Thank you, grievingmom. Today has been especially hard because I picked up Tazzy's urn a couple of hours ago, and the emotions just started pouring out of me uncontrollably. But, now he's home. Home with me forever...
