Trust the Feeling of Moving On, Even if your Heart Doesn't Feel Ready
Grief initially blocks your perception and isolates you from the world as you once knew it. You hoped it would dissipate like fog, but now that you've been smothered by it for weeks, you're beginning to wonder if it's here to stay.
When you were going through it, you probably thought the only thing that mattered was getting better and getting your life back to normal. Still, at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home, we have seen people fighting the seemingly impossible battle of trying to live a "normal" life and moving on.
Do Not Fight The Feeling Of Moving On
One morning, you open your eyes and realize you have a broader field of vision than before. The days are getting brighter and clearer, and the nights are getting quieter and more restful. Your emotional toolbox has expanded to include emotions like laughter, happiness, and gratitude, and the tears are beginning to dry up. As a glimmer of light penetrates the gloom, you realize that this must be what it feels like to "heal from grief."
You've also concluded that growth isn't nearly as fulfilling as you'd hoped. Remember that the one you've lost is not experiencing your pain now. What you do to honor and remember them is what will live on in their memory and give them a sense of significance long after they are gone.
Remember that your objective is not to stop remembering your loved one but to get to where you can do so without letting that remembering and honoring stop you from living your own life. Even though loss can be excruciating, new friendships can help you move forward as a hopeful, future-oriented person.
Give Yourself The Freedom Of Moving On
You must recognize that even as your grief lessens, your loved one remains in your heart and mind, and all you are doing is learning to live in a new way with your cherished memories of them. Although your emotions might not be prepared for it, you must think positively about moving on.
Moving on after the death of a loved one is a complicated process. Even if your heart isn't ready, you must learn to do this by slowly shaking off feelings of guilt, anger, and frustration. If you want to preplan a funeral, contact Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
