There seems to be this consensus in parts of the loss community that you have to move forward or “heal” from your grief. I don’t believe this is true.
Grief isn’t something to recover from. That implies there is something “wrong” with grief.
Grief isn’t a hardship or a disease. Grief simply IS.
Notes for the Bereaved:
You don’t have to “heal” if you don’t want to.
Grief isn’t a disease.
