Moving on after a passing of someone we love is not easy, and nor should it be an expectation. It is hard, and sometimes takes years. This heartbreaking video describes the experiences through a loss. It’s so achingly beautiful, that you wonder if it’s really a single passing or a funeral of hearts, that it lingers on so exquisitely.
For all those who are going through funeral times, and those who are grieving, maybe it’s just a reminder that you’re not alone. Don’t be afraid of experiencing tears, or a full range of emotions. It is a part of the process of allowing yourself to heal.
It’s also necessary to allow yourself to interact with your community. Seek support actively. Share messages, feelings and emotions with friends and family to lighten the burden of having to deal with a big life change all by yourself. Choose private communications and select who you correspond with. But allow yourself help without sinking in an overwhelming sea of grief. #Whatmattersmost is connecting with those who care, in times when you’re dealing with a vacuum.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
– Washington Irving
