64 things I wish someone had told me about grief

A not so happy subject this one, but one which people don’t talk about. Grief. Loss. Bereavement.

Over the last two years far too many people I love have died – close friends and family.  There have been times when I have longed to be able to talk to a friend, just to say this is happening, this is how I feel. Not to get an answer, a solution, but just to briefly get support, someone who hears what I say, who understands, who offers friendship.  What I have learned is that friends let you down.  Not out of malice but because – I’m guessing – they can’t deal with it, they don’t know what to say.  This compounds the hurt.

I did however find this website with a list entitled “64 things I wish someone had told me about grief”. This. Yes, this.  Everyone going through grief, loss, bereavement should be shown this.

I'm human. I'm not doing this because I think I'm good enough. I just want to try. Join me for some ranting, food talk, random photos. It's life!

    1. I am so sorry for your loss. Writing about it – although difficult and painful – can be a very healing process. I hope it helps to ease your paintings. If only more people would talk openly and honestly about it, it would help others.
