 When it is darkest, we can see the stars. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are three inevitable things we are all going to deal with: Death, Taxes, and Challenges. No one lives a problem-free life, and we are all going to DIE. Life would happen to us all; it is not a matter of if; it is a matter of when. You are either going into a storm, going through a new storm, or coming out of a storm. We lose a loved one; we get laid off from a job; we deal with infertility; we get diagnosed with a terminal illness; we get disappointed; we get divorced; we get heartbroken. It is tough going through the challenges and vicissitudes of life, and in these trying times, we expect our family and friends to be there for us, but most times, they are not equipped to help us navigate the challenges of grief.

Here are some great quotes of grieving:

  • “What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.” — Helen Keller
  • “The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it.

Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.” — Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
  • “Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.” — Leo Tolstoy

  • Grief is a most peculiar thing; we’re so helpless in the face of it. It’s like a window that will simply open of its own accord. The room grows cold, and we can do nothing but shiver. But it opens a little less each time, and a little less; and one day we wonder what has become of it.- Arthur Golden
  • To grieve is something extremely difficult, we don’t even know how to begin to grieve, and I don’t know how you can be taught to grieve.- Charlotte Rampling
