Grief: Processing, Honoring or Denying
I do hope you will keep in touch - should we still send you email via the deathdialogues address? You have been my mainstay through much of my grieving process, and I know you get the whole dittos and earth-shoe thing because we are the same age. I am so excited for you and your new explorations and I am so grateful for you and the work you have done. Xoxo jbrd
Great article! I agree there is a definite difference between processing and honoring following the death of a loved one. You could honor someone, either publicly or privately, and never process the loss. I know and I call that 'moving on" rather than 'moving forward ' all the while accompanied by the spirit of grief. Thanks Becky for the mention, and I will be sharing! ❤
I always appreciate your candor, Becky...and your incitement to consider the more expansive nature of grief and death. I have been saying this so often myself: "No one has emerged from the past two plus years unscathed," and yet I wonder how much our grief and death illiteracy keeps people from being present to this truth.
