Bereavement is probably one of the most difficult things we will ever have to face in this life. Give yourself permission to mourn your own way, at your own speed and with whatever ritual you find most comforting.
We mourn the loss of a relationship that was unique to us and although grieving follows a similar set of emotions for all of us, the order, depth and length will also be unique to each mourner. Let no person dictate to you when you should have healed from your loss. We all heal but we heal when the time is right for us. We do not need to walk to someone else's drum beat.

I wish you all a sense of comfort and peace so that you can rest and recharge yourself ready to continue this journey we call bereavement.

In Gentleness,
