Living with Grief

“Now I live with grief as a companion to my life, I include it with my joy, my passion, my breath. We coexist. Grief is welcome and rests quietly among all the other emotions that come and go.”

Beautiful words by a beautiful friend.

My grief does not yet exist quietly, but giving it the all clear to settle in and not just want it to fuck off and go away feels like it will ultimately allow me to feel at peace with it. I’m learning to accept and live with grief, instead of fighting it and wanting to get rid of it.
