Permission to grieve

4 thoughts on “Permission to grieve”

  1. It has always seemed strange to me that people take time off to grieve after a death, but they don’t take time to grieve after a heartbreak. Divorce is an admission that something went wrong with your marriage and that hurts horribly. I have to agree with you that you should take time to grieve for the loss of your partner, even if they have moved on and you haven’t, because without grieving you will take longer to heal.

    1. Yes! Really any loss will bring on grief and if we allow that process to run its course we will be able to recover much faster. For some reason, society doesn’t like to recognize emotional trauma if it doesn’t involve a physical death.
