What Grief Needs From You

What Grief Needs From You

 

Our culture is impatient with grief. In a world ruled by the time-is-money motto, we look for ways to move past it in the quickest way possible.

It’s not your fault. You’re part of a system that operates this way and you’re trying to survive within this system.

Unlike us, Grief, is very patient. It waits in the wings for us to notice and tend to it. When we fail to, unattended grief can wreak havoc with our physical and mental well-being.

We’re not meant to overpower, overcome, outrun, or outwit grief. Grief is a powerful energy that opens the portal to our deepest understanding, healing, and wisdom.

The only thing to do is get curious about what grief is asking of you. 

Does grief have room to move in?
Does grief feel noticed?
Are you a welcoming space for it?
Does grief feel like the enemy?

Open the door. Invite grief to step inside and sit with you. Now, begin to listen.

Sending you love,

Uma
