What’s Normal and What’s Not?
Never again doubt that who you are in your grief and
how you are grieving is not OK!
If you are grieving you will know that losing someone you love with all your heart tears your world apart. You never knew it would or could hurt this much. Not only are you dealing with the nightmare your life has become but with it comes the feeling of being so very alone, so very lost in the pain of your grief.
In our brokenness we are left feeling very fragile and very exposed. We lose ourselves and we lose our confidence in the shaky new reality we find ourselves in. We are trying so very hard to cope with the onslaught of pain and with it comes a vulnerability that makes us doubt who we are and how we are grieving.
Some questions that tend to come in:
Is this normal?
What is normal?
Am I the only one who feels this way?
Am I going crazy?
Is it so wrong to grieve this way?
How long is too long? I still feel so very sad.
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been or who it is that we are missing so very much, the true need is we just want to be able to be ourselves and grieve in our way, in our own time. We want to be comforted in the midst of our grief, not told how to be. For someone to see how very tough it is for us. For someone to know that we’re not OK even when we say we are. For someone to give us a hug and tell us we’ll get through.
The “you’re not normal” critics aren’t of any help telling us readily how to grieve and how to be. In a minute we feel dismantled and torn apart:
- “You should be over it by now.”
- “Why are you crying?”
- “Well I should be grieving worse than you.”
- “I don’t know why you’re so upset.”
Do you ever feel like screaming?
