Grief can leave you gifts after the pain has departed.
Essentially most people – in an effort to disguise their internal struggles – will say “I’m over it” when they really aren’t – they wish they were over it – they wish it didn’t bother them, but it does.
The experience of being silence-haunted is part and parcel with the end of love – it is part of the price that brave souls pay for having loved and lost. Over time, this too shall pass. It is painful but also a testament to your ability to truly love someone. Whether you are grieving the loss of your spouse through divorce or death, the truth is that the terrain of grief, while well traveled, is also one that you must travel in your own way and your own time. Having taken that road, through the silence-haunted early days of grief, you will find new vistas that lie before you – waiting to be discovered.
