Grieving allows us to heal, to remember with love rather than pain.
It is a sorting process.
One by one you let go of things that are gone and you mourn for them.
One by one you take hold of the things that have become a part of who you are and build again.
Rachel Naomi Remen
In this fast society that polishes the icons of materialism, youth and performance there is little time for the process of grief let alone the acknowledgement of the depth of loss experienced when more complicated circumstances and issues prevail. Grief counselling and therapy can be a crucial refuge at those times when all have gone back to the everyday of their lives and you are alone.
