Grief is unpredictable. And seemingly timeless. It is over two years now since both my parents died within a week of each other and since then I find myself unpredictably welling up or feeling so depressed. I didn’t ever have a rush of heavy grief to begin with – it’s just gone on and on. Somehow I need to find a way of saying goodbye to them but I have not found it yet.
Goodbye is probably the wrong word to use – however I manage to move on with my grief, I will not think of it as saying goodbye. Beginning to talk / write about it is helpful.
Thank you so much to Alastair for submitting his post. It’s a gentle reminder that grief doesn’t have resolutions. As painful as that is, it is our truth.
