Grief is the price you pay for love, but that is a good thing.

If you lose something you love, the grief and pain can be almost unbearable. That is the time to be thankful for having something you cared about so much.

When you are dealing with a loss, let the pain in, but also use that time to reflect on how good your life was before the loss. This is the give and take in life, we have joy and then we have sorrow. Yes, you can choose to be a robot and never experience the pain of loss, but when it is all said and done, almost everyone would love again.

Go out and enjoy what you love now.

Getting closure will not end the pain of loss.

Getting closure doesn’t end pain, it just changes it.

Closure is a good start on the road to easing the pain of loss, but the pain will never fully go away. Yes, working through the stages of grief is also helpful, but contrary to what you have been told, the pain will never totally go away. So don’t think you are wrong to continue to feel the pain of loss long after these steps have occurred. Pain is your way of honoring or valuing what you lost. Let it be, feel it, don’t push it away, watch it change.

What pain of loss can you acknowledge is still with you?
