Grief, for me, is one of the few emotions that are entirely about self. It’s the expression of the agony of being born with one solitary reference frame. Mine. It expresses and touches that hollow core, that once felt, follows throughout life. I feel connected and then some event initiates loss, often the loss reminds me that I, in reality, can never be over there with you or any other sentient being. I find myself in a solitary container again. Grief and suffering are human challenges that may be constant, but the ability to feel those things are also the reason to embrace the joys. Life is bittersweet in turn.

Well expressed. The line on life being bittersweet is deep and true.
Grief is messy, unpredictable, and follows no set guidelines. Thank you for sharing. Very well said. XO Lisa
It is so unpredictable. Sometimes you feel like things are almost normal and then some tiny thing brings grief and loss right up to the surface again.
Beautiful words by Bryan 👍👍
