Living Beyond Grief

LookingIntoDistanceIf we do not receive comfort, we become CRIPPLED by GRIEF.  One of the tell-tale signs that GRIEF has crippled a person is they continually rehearse their trials until the listener fully understands and relives their experience.  They usually believe their experience is so unique that no one else can fully understand or sympathize.  Another mark of grief being in residence too long is one physical battle after another.  Receiving comfort closes the door on calamity or loss.  Continued grief keeps the door open, so calamity keeps coming! Hopelessness is not just emptiness, it is a vacuum that sucks in despair.  Likewise Grief can become a vacuum that draws more tragedy.  WE CANNOT LIVE THERE!
