Healing journey is a unique experience to individuals. The time it takes to heal can vary from person to person and there could be unpredictable ups and downs throughout. This whole experience depends on various factors related to our personality, the kind of support we get, our circumstances etc. Knowing our path ahead helps us skilfully emerge from our distress. Here are some common tendencies in a bereavement and healing experience, so that you know what to expect from your healing journey.
I’ve got to tell you that healing is not forgetting because I personally knew some people who resisted healing from their grief as they thought it meant they were forgetting (and hence betraying) their late beloved in some way. If you too are in the same boat, this post is for you. Before anything, don’t worry, you don’t have to forget them and also you shouldn’t forget them. On top of all, please be assured that forgetting them is impossible. So, healing does not mean forgetting, instead it lets you keep your late beloved closer to your heart forever and empowers you to continue to cherish them.
