Grieving is about loss. Most people think of the grief process and right away think about death, and it is so "not" about death, but because we do not understand what death is, and only base our knowledge of death on everything we have been told second hand about it, our grief becomes something we "adjust ourselves to". It becomes for some, a burden they carry, and for others, another phase of growth and acceptance of our inability to "know everything".

Grief of anything other than death is much more tangible to work through. "I lost my house". Ok, so now I must find another place to shelter myself. "I lost my wallet". Ok. So now I have take the necessary steps to retrieve and protect my information best I can. 

"I lost my beloved. He/she was the only person in the entire world who I had ever fully opened my heart to who LISTENED, and took the time and effort to CONNECT to my HEART in a way that no one else could ever, or will ever again be able to do".


Best you can do is accept your human limits maybe. People say "acceptance of death". They only confuse the real issue.

Fabulous Writing

Where have you been keeping your poetry lately. Missed you. I have 6 months to go for hiatus, but stll read pp poets and comment, also I write prose from time to time and post that. I have begun to republish my old work on pp. I got heck for it and lots of encouragement to write poems and post them again. Not yet, though. Resting still. Healing. p.s. hemaidy is doing an anthology, send him something, see his list of poems for details. - Be well, Just Bein' Stella
