In my opinion, there is no right or wrong way to respond to loss. The loss of someone we love, a job, a relationship etc, takes us to a place of discomfort, grieving, reflection and change.
Suddenly we need to go with our lives with a missing part that seems to be impossible to be replaced.
As for me, I am not afraid of changes, but the loss of someone I love took me to a place that I have never been before. How can I continue with my life knowing that I won’t have the love, companionship, advice, and support of this person anymore? I honestly don’t know how to answer this question. What I can say is that I am immensely grateful for this person to help me grow over the past 44 years that I have been in this world.
I have found that meditation is helping me to cope with grief, some days are better than others but I can tell that, without this daily practice, I would have been in a different place. It is helping me to appreciate even more the moments we had together. Love you, Dad.
Life is not static, it is continuously changing, and we need to be able to dance in this beautiful life we have been given.
I appreciate the ones who are still around me and welcome the ones who are still to come.
