Two weeks ago, a group of like-minded people met and we talked about all things life.
One of our group members shared her recent experience of grief and helplessness over the suicide of a loved one.
We all went silent. Most of us cried with her and for the family that was left behind with many unanswered questions.
There were no words to comfort. No words to make it easier for her.
There were only our open hearts to listen and be with her fully.
Just being there for each other and listening is healing.
We all know that it doesn’t take the pain of grieving away but the sharing helps to realize that we are not alone in this.
Are you in the midst of grieving or a painful anniversary date is coming your way soon? Reach out to people that are open to listen to you and/or just be with you.
May you all find loving support even when your own words are missing.
Take good care,
