“I am more vulnerable than I thought, but much stronger than I ever imagined.” Sheryl Sandberg
Grief is tough. It's something that everyone goes through but no one truly understands. I facilitate grief groups and people always remark about how hard that must be. It's not hard for me; it's hard for them. My job is to provide a safe space; that's easy. The hard part is articulating how you feel. Trying to connect with other grievers even though sometimes you feel like you're speaking a different language. It's a great support group, but it's a group no one ever wants to be a part of.
One of the hardest parts about grief is the fact that life goes on. Dishes to be done. Jobs resume. I think that's why I love this book. It's realistic.
