Grieving Helps You

The bottom line is that you grieve, because it helps you. It is the road forward, to love again-whether having lost a person, job, way of life, or a limb. Shrugging, as if loss were nothing and you are beyond that depth of feeling, is denial of common humanness. It is saying that a person, thing, way of life, etc. can die and leave us-right in front of us-without touching us. It is a rejection of whole humanness and makes no sense, particularly when you try to say it out loud!
